The new Aventics XV valve series features multiple interoperable valve sizes and higher flow rates in a compact design

Global technology and software provider Emerson has launched its Aventics Series XV pneumatic valve series to provide machine builders with a flexible and cost-effective valve platform. Designed with interoperability in mind, the new valves feature universal threads among other features that support regional standards and global availability, making the series an ideal choice for machine builders across multiple industries and factory automation applications.

“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 optimised flow, a wide range of valves and an extensive portfolio of accessories.”

Higher flow in a more compact design

The 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 tyre, and food and packaging applications. This helps manufacturers boost productivity and allows them to offer products customised for specific markets and customer preferences.

The valve series includes the XV03, providing flow volumes up to 350l per minute in normal conditions (NL/min), and the XV05, scheduled for release in October this year, which provides up to 880 NL/min.

All valves in the Series XV line use proven Aventics core technology and include metal threads, parallel wiring, aluminium base plates and compact dimensions to make it easier to integrate into production system designs.

The valves use consistent interfaces and have wide connectivity from single wiring over parallel connections such as D-SUB connectors. They also support leading fieldbus protocols, including Profinet, thernet/IP, EtherCAT, Powerlink Modbus TCP, IO-Link, and AS-I, to simplify integration into machine control networks.

According to Emerson, the Servies XV Valves are also easy to commission. The Aventics online configurator supports system layout, providing useful information, while easy-to-understand system documentation in the design phase helps speed up machine development.
