New pressure regulators from Parker Hannifin
Compact EPP4 Series utilizes Calys software for monitoring, configuration and calibration
PARKER Hannifin have introduced a new range of programmable electro-pneumatic pressure regulators that deliver high levels of accuracy and flexibility demanded in automated and machinery tool-related applications.
Incorporating an integrated electronic system and compatibility with Parker’s Calys software means the EPP4 range can be connected to a PC for remote live monitoring of electrical and pneumatic data, calibration, and configuration for specific applications. This can overcome problems of access experienced in some installations, and means that one unit can be utilized for multiple applications, reducing the need for customers and distributors to keep large inventories.
The EPP4 has smaller overall dimensions than previous generation products, allowing it to be installed in space-constrained applications. Parker offer the new regulators in a full range of industry sizes from 0.25 to 2in pipe. Maximum inlet pressure ratings of either 12 or 21 bar are available, with a regulated pressure range of up to 20 bar depending on the specific model. High accuracy is guaranteed due to the use of a precision closed loop signal provided by a built-in pressure sensor.
For applications where constant monitoring of regulated pressure (in either bar or psi) is required, the EPP4 units can be supplied with a remote red LED display connected to the regulator body via a 1.5m cable.
