Fast, low power valves last almost for ever

Asco Joucomatic’s new piezo electric solenoid valves use ceramic multilayer technology which gives response times as low as 100 micro-sec, a service life in excess of one billion cycles, and a power consumption of just 0.007W.

On show at Drives & Controls, the valves embody a CMA element which comprises a monolithic piezo-ceramic strip with integrated electrodes that are specially configured so that the element bends when a voltage is applied. The bending action is used to open or close one or more nozzles in a valve, or to govern proportionally the flow of air.
