IMI Precision Engineering now offers its IMI Norgren Latching Solenoid Valve Array on CAN (LSC) for all on-vehicle applications that incorporates CAN-BUS communication.
The LSC requires a single electrical connector and air supply, allowing for on-chassis field expansions with no additional wiring or air supply. For bodybuilders and dealers this offers an efficiency boost for accessory upgrades, with an installation time of as little as 10 minutes in comparison to alternatives that can take hours.
According to Rachel Lahr, Director of Sales & Marketing Commercial Vehicles at IMI Precision Engineering, “We are really excited to be launching this new product to the commercial vehicle market. With the latching solenoid valve technology, we are bringing to market a product that will help OEMs, bodybuilders and dealers reduces total cost of ownership, decrease power consumption, and reduces overall complexity. By developing one standard solenoid for all on-vehicle applications, this flexible assembly can change the way that OEMs manage their on-board controls.”
The compact array features new latching solenoid valve technology. The magnetic latching allows a single solenoid valve to replace a 2-valve or shuttle combination, and the parasitic load of the solenoid is eliminated because power is not required to maintain the valve state.
Finally, the array assembly reduces part number complexity, in comparison to existing solutions. Also, an additional bracket is not required for the assembly; it can simply be mounted directly onto a frame rail eliminating additional costs.
