Generators

SMC Vacuum Generators use compressed air to generate vacuum using a venturi. Vacuum levels down to -25 inHG (-85kPa) is obtained from single and multi stage units with suction flow greater than 7 SCFM (200 l/min.) SMC's vacuum generators can be connected via a manifold or used individually. These compact devices can also be customized to integrate suction filters, vacuum switches, and supply/release valves onto the generator. Additionally, SMC's generators can be configured to manage distribution of vacuum from a external vacuum source.

vacuumSwitch_sml

Switches

SMC vacuum switches provide a completely integrated, digital solution designed to monitor vacuum status. Vacuum sensor and switch outputs are integrated into ultra-compact, lightweight units. Easy push button calibration eliminates the need for tools. Available in either easy-to-read LCD with backlight or LED readouts which display current measured value as well as set points and output mode information. Outputs are digital NPN or PNP and analog, with simple programming and multiple application features such as failure prediction and window comparator. Vacuum switches can be integrated directly onto many vacuum generators.

Series: ZSE
