High density pneumatic valve island reduces installation costs

High density pneumatic valve island reduces installation costs
A major update to the ASCO Numatics G3 Series electronic valve island platform has been announced by Emerson, which enables a reduction in installation costs. The valve island has been expanded so that it can control up to 128 solenoid valves on a single valve island assembly. This allows more valves to be controlled from a single node, enabling savings in the number of nodes and the cabling, internal tubing and electrical connections in the cabinet.
