SMC Product of the Month: Direct Operated 2 Port Solenoid Valve
Improving on the previous design, the special construction of the new VX2 valves make them an ideal choice across industries and applications.
Both form and function have been updated with the new design. First, addressing the magnetic properties of the solenoid coil improved the functionality of the new VX2. The coil size is more compact, improving the pulling force. The flow and pressure attributes of the valve are also improved with an increased orifice design. Next, in order to create a valve that was quieter, a rubber damper is now included as well as a built-in wave rectifier. The rubber damper deadens the sound by removing any direct metal to metal contact in operation while the armature is moving.
Finally, additional resin and aluminum body options are available to extend the series beyond brass and stainless steel.
