ASCO Introduce Two Intrinsically Safe Solenoid Valves to Their Range

ASCO Solenoid Valves - Intrinsically Safe Solenoids (Ex i)

ASCO Numatics introduces two intrinsically safe solenoid valves for hazardous area use with Ex ia IIC T6 certification

The ASCO solenoid operators are designed for use on the ASCO 327 direct operated solenoid valves.ATEX Hazardous Area - Solenoid Valves ASCO

ASCO valves are available in aluminium or stainless steel - ASCO solenoid valves are certified to ATEX, Category 1G/2D and Equipment Protection Level (EPL) Ga/Db.

Both operators are IECEx approved and certified to IEC 61508 Functional Safety (SIL 3 capable).

The ASCO 327 series solenoid valves feature a brass, stainless steel or aluminium (NAMUR) body.

These solenoid valves have a large flow rate (Kv 0.45 m³/h), operate from 0 to 10 bar and require no minimum operating pressure.

ASCO 327 Series Solenoid Valves – The Full Range

The polarity insensitive solenoid operators have a power consumption of only 0.5W at 24V DC and feature a newly developed electronic booster coil and stainless steel core for optimum performance.

The operator can be rotated 360° and locked into position to select the best position for cable entry. Electrical connection is via a cable gland (M20x1.5) or cable connection 1/2” NPT and easy access screw terminals.

The ASCO solenoid valves are suitable for use in ambient temperatures from -40°C to +60°C, and are rated to ll 1/2G Ex ia IIC T6 Ga / II 2D Ex tb lllC T85°C IP66/67 Db, Certification: ATEX and IECEx EN 60079-0, EN 60079-11, 60079-31, EN 61241-0 and EN 61241-11.

The introduction of the new solenoid valve means that ASCO can now offer a universal intrinsically safe valve for 3/2 and 2/2 normally open and normally closed applications in aggressive environments across the process industry.
