Parker Hannifin, the motion and control technologies specialist, has introduced a new Isys Micro valve adaptor to connect the advanced Turck BL67 System; a remote fieldbus communications and electrical I/O device, to increase the functionality and performance of its Isys Micro pneumatic valve platforms.

The Turck BL67 System and Isys Micro valve combination is said to be quick and simple to use, making it easy for OEMs and end users to setup and reconfigure a range of pneumatically controlled motion and automation systems, while reducing installation times and machine costs.

Isys Micro valves are modular in design, enabling centralised or decentralised valve islands to be constructed quickly, with back-to-back plug-in ­connectivity, offering high flow rates and a long operating life of over 50 million cycles.

With the addition of the Turck BL67 System, Isys Micro valves can be supplied as a complete remote I/O system including communication gateways for the most popular industrial and Ethernet protocols and a wide choice of digital and analogue modular inputs and outputs.
