Eaton Corporation is introducing a new KBCG5-3 high-flow, proportional pressure relief valve with integrated control electronics. It is described as a genuine plug-and-play unit, with industry standard seven-pin connector.
The KBCG5-3 complements Eaton's known KB proportional valve series by extending flow capability up 40 litres/minute while offering all the same features and functions of the range.
Colin Cooper, the Product Manager for Industrial Controls, EMEA, comments: "This new valve is designed to help extend the flow rate options within our KB series and thereby broaden the scope of potential applications. It has all the features offered by the other units in the range plus an on-board pre-programmed amplifier to ensure maximum consistency of functionality."
Features offered by the new KBCG5-3 valve and common to all units in the KB range as standard include:
- on-board digital electronics with ramp adjustment
- IP65/67 ingress protection
- choice of voltage and current command supply
- five different pressure settings
- hysteresis and linearity stability
- electrical power down failsafe protection
In addition to these features, the KBCG5-3's integral amplifier is pre-programmed with preset pressure ratings to help ensure consistent pressure gain settings and valve-to-valve performance repeatability.
Options include voltage or current command supply and an external valve enable function.
