New Emerson pneumatic valves enhances automation flexibility and flow

Emerson’s Series XV valves can be integrated into existing production systems internationally

Emerson has launched the AVENTICS Series XV pneumatic valves. Series XV valves are designed with interoperability to provide a flexible and cost-effective valve platform across multiple industries and factory automation applications. The new valves can be used by machine builders and end users across the globe, with universal threads and other features that support regional standards and global availability.

Series XV valves provide higher flow rates in a compact valve package that enables more efficient and flexible pneumatic system performance for factory automation, automotive and tire, and food and packaging applications. This enhances productivity and allows manufacturers to offer products that meet specific markets and customer preferences.

“In all industries, manufacturers need high-performance technology that gives them the agility and flexibility to stay ahead of rapidly changing market demands,” said Wolf Gerecke, director of product marketing for Emerson’s machine automation business. “The new AVENTICS Series XV pneumatic valves deliver that performance with optimized flow, a wide range of valves and an extensive portfolio of accessories.”

Series XV valves include the XV03, providing flow volumes up to 350 litres per minute in normal conditions (NL/min), and the XV05, scheduled for release in Oct 2024, providing up to 880 NL/min.

All valves in the Series XV line have incorporated the AVENTICS core technology and include metal threads, parallel wiring, aluminum base plates and compact dimensions that can be integrated into production system designs.

With a user-friendly interface, Series XV valves have wide connectivity from single wiring over parallel connections such as D-SUB connectors. They also support fieldbus protocols, including PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT, Powerlink, Modbus TCP, IO-Link, AS-I, to simplify integration into machine control networks.

Series XV valves are also easy to commission. The AVENTICS online configurator supports system layout and provides information, while system documentation in the design phase supports fast machine development.
