New EPP4 Comfort remote controlled pressure regulators

Parker Hannifin is launching the EPP4 Comfort remote controlled electro-pneumatic pressure regulators to provide flexibility, precision and energy savings in a wide range of manufacturing applications. The new models have been designed to enhance the performance and reliability of machinery within the production environment, including welding, paper and printing and machine tool robots, as well as on trucks and trains for the control of adaptive suspensions.

Featuring a compact and lightweight construction, the new 1inch and 2inch EPP4 Comfort regulators have been developed for quick and easy installation and low inertia on moving robots. Using an integrated electronic control system and pulse width modulated (PWM) solenoid valves, the units control the output pressure proportionally to an analogue electrical signal, while high precision is achieved by means of internal feedback from an integral pressure sensor. As a result, control systems can be simplified dramatically through the reduced number of components, while productivity is improved through the greater flexibility.

The EPP4 Comfort range boasts extremely fast response times, excellent linearity and low hysteresis of 0.5 per cent for the accurate and fast adjustment of the controlled pressure, thereby increasing production efficiency. Power consumption is also notably low, requiring a maximum of 6W, enabling simple integration into standard installations, and, as no air is used when there is no change of control signal, further energy and cost savings can be achieved.

Easily mounted, the EPP4 Comfort pressure regulators feature plug-and-play functions to provide simple tools for setup and monitoring using standard PC software, which enables users to set all the relevant parameters of the units quickly and simply, both on and off site. Additionally, the remote display enables users to read the regulated pressure wherever the application requires it and the large, high-clarity LED digits make reading quick and easy. The EPP4 Comfort 1inch and 2inch regulators are available for control by either a voltage or current analogue control signal, offering either analogue or digital outputs, and are adjustable to meet the specific parameters of each application. As with all Parker products, these new models are backed by the company's global network of manufacturing, sales and customer support centres.
