The line of NITRA pneumatics (Cumming, GA) from AutomationDirect now includes new Total Air Prep (TAP) units and NITRA Ethernet/IP protocol compact modular valve (CMV series) modules. Specifics include the following:
- 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. TAP units have a 0 to 120 psi pressure range and are IP65 rated and CE approved.
- NITRA Ethernet/IP (EIP) protocol modules have been added to the NITRA CMV Series of compact modular solenoid valves in two models (single 3/8" input and dual 3/8" input). 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.
