Smart Pneumatic Valve P10 Series

Image P10

The P10 pneumatic valve is an integrated solution for air opening and closing control in pneumatic applications

It contributes to cost reduction associated with the generation, treatment, and maintenance of compressed air networks

It can be directly installed in existing systems, with minimal intervention, allowing reduction of consumption and waste

The valve actuation can be signaled by dry contact (push button, footswitch), external sensor signal (inductive, capacitive, photoelectric, among others), or by automation signal

Example applications

Example #1 - P10 valve with manual air plug gauge

One of the simplest applications of air-electronic measurement consists of a measuring equipment and a manual plug gauge for inspection of an internal diameter. In this example, the P10 valve is used to release the compressed air only when the measuring plug is removed from the rest support. In addition, the P10 valve monitors user inactivity and automatically blocks the compressed air, if required.

Application example - P10 valve with manual air plug gauge

Example #2 - P10 valve with air plug gauge on fixture

Analogous to the example #1, this application consists of measuring equipment, and an air plug fixed on a base for internal diameter inspection. In this example, the P10 valve is used to release the compressed air only when the part is inserted into the air plug gauge. In addition, the P10 valve monitors user inactivity and automatically blocks the compressed air, if required.

Application example - P10 valve with air plug gauge on fixture

Example #3 - Multiple air gauge commutation

Parts with multiple characteristics to be measured typically require the use of multiple air plugs. In situations where the operator performs the inspections sequentially, it is possible to commutate the air gauges and use only one M20-1P column for measurement visualization. In this example the P10 valves are used for detecting when the air gauge is removed from the rest support, releasing compressed air and signaling of the configuration in use to the Metrolog M20-1P measurement column.

Application example - Multiple air gauge commutation

Example #4 - Multiple circuit commutation

In this example, four P10 valves are used in sync for control of the compressed air supplied to a 4-circuit measuring plug. The release and blocking are accomplished through the momentary touch button. In addition, a 3-position switch is installed for permanent valve commutation, if necessary.

Application example - Multiple circuit commutation

Example #5 - Timed air supply

In this example, a P10 valve is used for timing the compressed air supply to a coordinate measuring machine (CMM). The compressed air is released by pressing the push button and the air is blocked automatically after the set time has elapsed.

Application example - Timed air supply

Example #6 - Air supply with motion detection sensor

In this example, a P10 valve is used for timing the compressed air supply to a coordinate measuring machine (CMM). The compressed air is released by the signal from a motion detection sensor (PIR).

Application example - Air supply with motion detection sensor

Example #7 - P10 valve with through-beam sensor

In this example a through-beam photoelectric sensor, Metrolog PMB101, is used to release the compressed air at the moment the operator interrupts the sensor beam. Connected to a P10 valve is a measuring system using SD20p-1Vpp/TTL signal conditioners and Heidenhain ND287 display.

Application example - P10 valve with through-beam sensor

Example #8 - P10 valve integration with a PLC

This example demonstrates the basic integration of the P10 valve with a process logic controller (PLC).

Application example - P10 valve integration with a PLC
