The VERSA C-Series valve is an extremely reliable valve that can hold up in extreme elements. All the C-Series solenoid valves utilize a high-performance solenoid pilot design. This design takes advantage of the available media pressure/force to shift valve assuring positive shifting. A low power solenoid controls the pilot signal which provides the positive force for shifting the valve spool. Solenoid/pilot supply can be either Inpilot or Expilot
Real World Reliability requires constant communication through technologies such as the Industrial Internet of Things
(IIoT). To meet these requirements, Versa is promoting field-proven Diagnostic Feedback Options. The same tried-andtrue valves Versa had always offered are now available, with the addition of key modular components, with the added
capability of intelligence through the use of strategic sensors.
In combination with our extensive valve options and the ever-expanding
IIoT technologies, these developments offer users endless opportunities to
engineer intelligent systems. Our Remote Sensor Port (-20) option is one of
these options. When a spool valve’s solenoid is energized, it lifts a poppet
to allow air pressure to the piston, providing the force to shift the valve.
Simultaneously, a 1/8” NPT port, connected to the pilot
chamber, receives pressure. This port can be fitted with
pressure sensors of various kinds for a wealth of diagnostic
feedback information focused on the solenoid operation
Our quality lab finds the #1 cause of failure to be ingress of debris and moisture. Ingress is an especially frustrating problem because it’s inevitable. When foreign material enters a valve body or solenoid, it clogs up internal moving parts and causes them to stick.
This is particularly a problem for applications with long periods between cycling, giving foreign materials more time to build-up.
To fight the problem, Versa offers rugged, high-flow valves capable of handling debris. However, in toughest applications, customers need more than the basics to assure valves shift when called upon.
