Electro-Pneumatic System EB80
EB80 is defined as an electro-pneumatic system as it would be simplistic to use the term "solenoid valve island". In effect, a single assembly can combine solenoid valves of all types, multi-position bases, pneumatic and electric supplies arranged as desired in a system, digital or analogue input or output signal control modules and much more besides.
The EB80 system is protected by numerous patents and utility models, which enhance the most innovative design solutions.
The possible combinations are endless, but the most amazing thing is that they can be obtained using a small number of basic components.
In order to achieve this objective, a single size of small yet high-performance valves to cover the vast majority of applications was conceived.
A single electronic control unit is provided when supplying 12VDC or 24VDC valves with multi-pole cables or with a field bus for each protocol.
All EB80 versions come with an efficient diagnostic system.

EB 80 BOXI
The EB 80 electro-pneumatic system features the utmost modularity and allows the construction of all types of valve island and size. This enormous potential is not exploited to the full, however, when only a few valves are needed and there is no need to manage input or output signals. BOXI was designed to best meet this requirement for simplicity. It consists of a solid base that accommodates pneumatic and electrical connections, the electronics and up to 4 valves. A comparison with a modular EB 80 for 4 valve shows that BOXI weighs 35% less and saves 30% space, in addition of its competitive price, while maintaining many of the advantages that have made the EB 80 so popular, namely:
- All the EB 80 valves, from the twin 2/2 to the high-flow models, can be installed
- Can be powered at 12VDC or 24VDC
- Interchangeable cartridge fittings
- Only 0.3W to control each valve
- Diagnostics (open circuit, over-under, voltage short-circuit) with LED signal lights
- Possibility of connecting multifunction modules to the outputs

CM Clever Multimach
Clever Multimach valves can be used to form autonomous and intelligent valve island subsystems.
Each valve has a microchip that performs a series of functions connected with operation and dialogue with the valves before and after it. Valves communicate via serial transmission.
CM refers to the communication protocol patented by Metal Work. It is a field-bus in its own right, designed specifically for very easy control of islands of pneumatic solenoid valves.
CM valves have a diagnosis system that detects electrical faults. It can also be used to verify during installation that all connections are correct. Multi-pole connections and field buses with different communication protocols are available for controlling the valve distribution island.
Addressing of single outputs is not required as the connection number of each solenoid pilot is assigned automatically based on the position occupied by the valve.

Valves Series 70 SAFE AIR®
Starting from the robust and reliable valves series 70, we have added a few distinctive features, such as the presence of a valve status diagnostic system and the creation of a double communication channel guaranteeing redundancy of the architecture.

The simplest version is obtained from a pneumatically-operated 3/2 monostable valve. It is well known that when this type of valve is in the idle state (coil de-energized), port 1 is not connected to the downstream pneumatic circuit and port 2 is on relief; when the valve is operated (coil energized), port 1 is connected to port 2. When the coil is de-energized again, the valve is returned to the idle state (and hence port 2 relieves) by means of a spring that returns the spool to the home position. In the event of a failure, the spool may remain in the actuation position, even when the coil is de-energized, thus leaving port 2 pressurized. To offset this problem, we have added a Hall-effect sensor that reads the spool position.

This means that when the valve is deactivated, the sensor is in the ON state, when the valve is activated, the sensor is in the OFF state. A status in which the sensor is OFF state and the coil de-energized indicates that there is a problem. To reduce the probability of risk during plant maintenance, the manual actuator mounted on the electric control is the monostable type. The sensor inside the valve is available in the standard version with a 2.5m three-wire cable (standard or ATEX certified) or with an M8 connector and 300 mm cable. This valve, which is available in sizes 1/8”, 1/4” and 3/8”, is a category 2 component, according to ISO EN 13849, and is suitable for use in safety circuits up to PL = c.

For applications requiring higher performance levels, we have also develop a double-channel version (redundant) that requires the use of two valves series 70 with a monitored spool arranged so that port 2 of valve 1 is connected with port 1 of valve 2. If just one of the valves de-energizes, port 2 relieves, so, even if one of the two spools remains blocked, the other guarantees relief of the compressed-air circuit. In this case, too, the presence of spool position sensors can be used to monitor the status. The double valve, which is available in the size 1/8”, 1/4” and 3/8” as well, is a category 4 component according to ISO EN 13849 and is suitable for use in safety circuits up to PL = e. Both the single- and double-channel valves come with:
- a Type-Approval certificate no. P14056/14/MC/mc and no. P14100/14/MC/mc, issued by Bureau Veritas in accordance with EN ISO 13849;
- a certificate of compliance no. CV 013-12-2014 and no. CV 014-12-2014 to European Machinery Directive, issued by Bureau Veritas.

Metal Work Deutschland GmbH
Air valve technology, general
Series PLT-10 solenoid valves can be mounted on bases complete with electrical and pneumatic connections, from 4 to 24 positions. The electric contacts of each valve are linked to a single multiple connector via a printed circuit board. The connector has 9 pins or 25 pins, depending on the model and the number of valves that can be mounted. Versions with 25-pin connectors can interface with standard field buses by means of Profibus-DP modules for Multimach. The compressed-air supply is common to all the valves and can be provided on either side of the base by means of a 1/8” fitting. Connection to the utilities is via automatic integrated cartridges for Ø 4 pipe. The solenoid valve outlet is free, in a slot in the base. The bases can be secured from above using M3 screws, or on a DIN bar using a bracket (see accessories). The bases can mount various types of PLT-10 solenoid valves: 3/2 NC, 3/2 NO, with or without a manual actuator. With this modular system, you can select the desired sequence of valves (NC, NO, blind) and change it at any time.

Multiple connectors MACH 16
Mach 16 valves can be mounted on bases with pneumatic or electrical connection. The electric contacts of the individual valves are connected by means of a printed circuit board in a sealed conduit to a single connection point suitable for up to 16 controls. The number 16 was chosen because the number of outputs of most PLC output boards is 16 or a multiple of it.
The system has numerous alternatives and variants for a wide range of requirements:
• Base for monostable or bistable valves.
• Connection via a multiple connector or wired cable.
• Supply of individual parts or ready prepared bases or complete valve units
• The configuration can be modified at any time to convert bases for monostable valves into bases for bistable valves.
• The return cable can be used to connect two monostable valve units to a single multiple connector.
All versions are certified for electromagnetic compatibility and hence they bear the CE mark. The system is prearranged for mounting a slave for field buses, which can be added at any time. Valve units with multiple pneumatic/electrical connection are supplied complete with valves and are tested. System modularity means that the valve sequence can be ordered to meet your own requirements (see key to codes).

Reducer with gauge for valves, Series RMV
Reducer with gauge for valves, Series RMV
Air valve technology, general
Metal Work Deutschland GmbH
Air valve technology, general
The RMV-series miniature pressure regulator with pressure gauge for valves is specifically conceived for mounting on the outlets of valves with a 1/8” port. With limited cross dimension, it can be fitted to a series of small valves. The body is 16.5 mm wide and fits exactly on the valves of the Mach 16 series for multiple electrical connection. Using the RMV, it is possible to differentiate the pressure of each single output of the valves. For example, if you mount it on port 2 and not on port 4, the pressure can be reduced on port 2 only. If you mount one for each port, the pressure on port 2 will differ from that on port 4, which in turn is less than the feed pressure (outlet 1). There are three 1/8” threaded RMV ports that are pneumatically connected in parallel. A small pressure gauge is mounted in one port; another port is plugged by an A7-type fitting and a third can take a fitting. The user, however, can decide whether the layout of components is to be modified or not. He might, for example, decide to mount three fittings to create a three-port reduced-pressure distributor.

HDM + Multi-pole Connection
HDMs are the ideal solution for those requiring the unbeatable performance, flexibility and modularity of Multimach valves combined with sturdy mechanics and a high degree of protection against external agents. Each valve is enclosed in a reinforced technopolymer protective shell that acts as a shock-absorber and prevents the infiltration of dirt. The class of protection is IP65. The smooth, rounded design makes HDMs ideal for applications requiring frequent washing without the deposit of residues. All the pneumatic connections are on one side, with built-in push-in fittings. The user interface is on another side so that the fitter and the service engineer have everything at hand. Flexibility is total: there are 1-16 valves, input and output terminals for pipes of different sizes and intermediate modules for separate inputs and outputs. One very important new feature is that valves of different capacities can be mounted as required. Three different valve sizes can be combined at will. This means a valve can be replaced at any time by another one offering a different performance. It only takes a few seconds to replace or add a valve. To do this, merely loosen the two grub screws fixing the valve to the adjacent ones. Since the electrical signal is relayed from one valve to the next by means of gold-plated contacts connected to an electronic board, the electrical connections are entirely automatic. The ratio of the HDM’s flow rate to its dimensions is unrivalled –miniaturisation and efficiency have reached a peak.
