Emerson Announces High Density Pneumatic Valve Island, Enabling Reduced Installation Costs

Emerson announces a major update to the ASCO Numatics G3 Series electronic valve island platform, enabling a reduction in installation costs. The valve island has been expanded so that it can control up to 128 solenoid valves on a single valve island assembly. This allows more valves to be controlled from a single node, enabling savings in the number of nodes and the cabling, internal tubing and electrical connections in the cabinet. Customers will benefit when they control a high density of valves or pneumatic equipment in a packaging plant or on a skid.
