AutomationDirect’s line of NITRA pneumatics now includes new Total Air Prep (TAP) units and NITRA Ethernet/IP protocol compact modular valve (CMV series) modules.
Both TAP units contain an automatic drain air filter with clogged filter indicator, relieving regulator, lockable shut-off valve, pressure gauge and air dump. Electric models also have an adjustable electric soft start / shut-off valve and an adjustable pressure switch with indicator LEDs. Starting at $171.00, TAP units have a 0 to 120 psi pressure range and are IP65 rated and CE approved.
Two versions of the multi-functional filter-regulator assembly offer a common small footprint regardless of piping requirements. Units ship with 1/2-in. NPT inlet/outlet ports. Optional NPT or BSPP port inserts in sizes 1/4 through 1 in. are available (sold separately). Any combinations of port sizes are available all in one small footprint.
Also available, new NITRA Ethernet/IP (EIP) protocol modules have been added to the NITRA CMV Series of compact modular solenoid valves. Two models (single 3/8 in. input and dual 3/8 in. input) are available. These Ethernet/IP communication end plates permit daisy chaining of as many CMV manifold banks as needed by using the Ethernet/IP connection vs. hardwiring. The EIP units are IP65 rated using M12 connectors for communication and M8 connectors for supply power. NITRA configuration software for use with the CMV series EtherNet/IP modules is available on CD, USB and as a free download.
EIP Ethernet/IP modules start at $549.00 and have a 2-year warranty.
