“Five Critical Factors for Selecting Fieldbus Valve Manifolds” — New White Paper from Numatics, Inc.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — May 10, 2011 — Fieldbus valve manifolds are replacing conventional hardwired solutions on a variety of highly automated machines in a wide variety of applications and industries. A new white paper, “Five Critical Factors For Selecting Fieldbus Valve Manifolds,” from Numatics, Inc., guides original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end users in the selection of the best solutions for their given applications.
The paper is available for download from http://www.numatics.com.
“Fieldbus valve manifolds find wide utility in packaging, automotive/tire, and material handling applications, as well as in the pharmaceutical, chemical, water, and wastewater industries,” said white paper author Enrico De Carolis, director of technology development at Numatics, Inc.
In the white paper, De Carolis presents the five crucial factors that controls engineers, specifiers, and buyers must consider before selecting pneumatic fieldbus valve manifolds — commissioning, distribution, modularity, diagnostics, and recovery — while outlining the shortcomings of conventional approaches.
In addition, De Carolis also discusses new designs that offer substantial improvements in the application, performance, and maintenance of these valve manifolds from the end users’ and OEMs’ points of view.
“Fieldbus valve manifolds more easily perform vital functions by integrating communication interfaces to pneumatic valve manifolds with input/output (I/O) capabilities. This allows programmable logic controllers (PLCs) to more efficiently turn valves on and off and to channel I/O data from sensors, lights, relays, individual valves, or other I/O devices via various industrial networks. The resulting integrated control packages can also be optimized to allow diagnostic benefits not previously available,” he said.

New White Paper: “The Insider’s Guide to Applying Miniature Solenoid Valves,” from ASCO Valve

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — April 11, 2011 — A new white paper, The Insider’s Guide to Applying Miniature Solenoid Valves, consolidates the expert views of designers and manufacturers to provide a step-by-step resource for applying miniature solenoid valves for myriad uses across multiple industries.

The paper is available to download from http://bit.ly/h0iq7f.

“Equipment designers frequently must incorporate miniature solenoid valves into their pneumatic designs. These valves are important components of medical devices and instrumentation as well as environmental, analytical, and similar product applications,” said white paper author Mike Elsigian, marketing manager, ASCO Valve, Inc.

In the white paper, Elsigian defines which requirements are critical for common applications. He details how the selection of miniature solenoid valves for the design of a given device usually involves finely balancing tradeoffs among competing pressures for reliability, service life, light weight, higher flow, optimized power use, standards compliance, and more.

Elsigian also highlights the introduction of newer valve technologies that can lessen or eliminate difficult compromises — while increasing performance. “New miniature solenoid valve technologies represent the fusion of several innovative approaches to meet the widest possible range of demands from knowledgeable designers across multiple industries,” he said.

“All too often, these designers find themselves frustrated as they face compromise after compromise. Pressure for increasingly miniaturized devices complicates every step of the design and valve selection process. And missteps can wreak havoc,” he said. “We’re hoping that the expertise we provide will assist designers in achieving the balance they need for success among the variety of often-contradictory performance requirements demanded by their applications.”
