New A-Series manifold valves from Parker Pneumatics, Richland, Mich., meet the demand for more-compact pneumatic components required by industries such as semiconductor, packaging, food, beverage, and pharmaceutical. The 10 and 15-mm sizes are available in body ported, instant push-in, and subbase versions. The range includes captured exhaust, programmable manifolds for internal/external piloting, and optional manifold collective wiring system (MCS) in SubD 25 or 26-pin ribbon connector configurations. Valves can therefore be individually wired or addressed through the MCS connector to form a valve island. Valve life expectancy is up to 50 million cycles.
