EX600, EX510, EX500 serial interface valves accessories from SMC

September 28, 2012

SMC offers a wide range of serial interface units which include EX600, EX510 and EX500, used for various valves applications. These and the complete line of SMC products are available 24/7 from Innovative-IDM.

With a full set of programmable and diagnostics parameters, the EX600 serial interface is highly flexible with options to choose from, including analog input, digital input and digital output unit. The EX600 communication module can be attached with up to nine remote D-sub manifolds using D-sub output blocks. EX600 serial interface is compatible with series: VQC1000/2000/4000, SV1000/2000/3000 and S0700 valves as well as with the new SY series valves.

On the other hand, the conventional EX510 series enables the connection of more sensors and valves. This serial interface allows saving of wires as it only requires a mere power supply cable to the GW unit.

Hi Mike,

I just wanted to share with you some great customer service by Cyrus Jahani.

I had called innovative earlier today looking for an SMC part, however, Cyrus was not available.  I do not remember who I spoke with, but they had told me the part I was looking for was not in stock.  The part was a custom order part and would be a 2-4 week lead time.

This was not good news, since my lab was in need of this part ASAP.  I got the permission to proceed with order so I called Innovative back.  This time I insisted on waiting for Cyrus – Good thing I did.

Cyrus was able to find the cylinder and the switch separately in stock elsewhere and told me the lab could have the parts by Friday.  This was great news!  Cyrus had to know the SMC parts well in order to do this.  So I called our field tech back to let him know the good news.  Both our tech and lab are very happy.

Great customer service by Cyrus!
