Piab, the maker of industrial vacuum conveyors and components in Hingham, Mass., offers miniaturized vacuum switches, VS4015/VS401516, and VS4118/VS4128.
Piab said the switches are increasingly popular because of low cost, small size, low weight and simple installation.
“These unique pre-set vacuum switches offer true plug-and-play installation, and have been specifically developed to help manufacturers to fully benefit from the advantages offered by decentralized vacuum systems based on, for instance, Piab's compact air-driven vacuum ejectors: Lower energy consumption, improved flow, better response times, simplified dimensioning, increased productivity and much more,” said Josef Karbassi, vice president of Piab's Automation Division.
Piab offers the switches with wither push-in or threat connectors. Also available: a T-adapter, allowing multiple vacuum switches to be connected in series with one common output.
They are available in two different versions, made of plastic or metal.
“The plastic version is ultra-lightweight and is suitable for, for example, very fast-moving robotic applications where low weight is of critical importance,” Karbassi said.
