Proportional pressure regulator VPPM

The proportional valve VPPM is a true all-rounder: three presets are available at the push of a button for the right control characteristics, whether integrated on the valve terminal MPA-S with multiplexing and comprehensive diagnostic functions via fieldbus/Ethernet or as an individual valve with IO-Link.

Multi-sensor control with integrated pressure sensors provides stable and precise control, even with fluctuating temperatures and complex applications.


Multi-sensor control (cascade control) of the VPPM

Advantages

  • Better control precision and dynamic response than individually operating regulators
  • Optimum small signal characteristics without overshooting
  • Precise regulation even over long distances
  • Insensitive to temperature changes

Application examples for the proportional valve VPPM

Printing and paper machines: VPPM controls pneumatic brakes and regulates compensating rollers for the right speed and tensile stress. Handling: VPPM-MPA controls the supply pressure for ejectors for vacuum generation. Food industry: VPPM used for measuring out quantities or for determining the mixing ratio. Process automation: VPPM ensures precise contact pressure to suit the material, the technique and the tool. Test engineering: VPPM controls different pressures which are applied to the cylinder. Welding machines: VPPM controls the pneumatic cylinder which presses the welding head into place. Packaging: Delivery quantities are controlled by a setpoint on the VPPM. Automotive industry: VPPM controls the supply pressure for welding guns.
