High flows in miniature packages

Written by: Chris Shaw | Published:

Sensortechnics has announced its new 2-way and 3-way Ten-X solenoid valves.

The Ten-X series is available with integrated 'Hit and Hold' drive electronics designed to 'significantly reduce' the power consumption and heat generation using pulse width modulation (PWM). According to Sensortechnics, the miniature valves are suitable for many portable, medical and analytical device applications.

The Ten-X valves achieve flow rates of 8lpm at 6psi (400mbar) and 22lpm at 30psi (2bar) through a 0.060in (1.5mm) orifice. Sensortechnics claims the single piece body design reduces the overall component parts and provides high reliability and excellent leak specifications over the entire lifetime of the valves. The 10mm wide package offers barbed pressure ports for direct tubing connections, or manifold mount assemblies using the Ten-X gasket.

The series meets the specific response times and flow requirements of non-invasive blood pressure devices. Further medical applications include respiratory devices, anaesthesia machines, oxygen concentrators/conservers and wound therapy.
