Emerson has expanded its ASCO Series 090 line of miniature solenoid valves, adding a new three-way Series 090 valve configuration to enable lighter, more space-efficient solutions for gas control in oxygen therapy, compression therapy and gas analyzer devices.
The new three-way configuration of the Series 090 valve can perform the same mixing and diverting functions as a pair of two-way valves and it further simplifies the design of small gas delivery systems for oxygen and other home-care devices. Like all Series 090 valves, the new three-way valve is built to maximize gas flow, with a flow-to-size ratio that is well suited to portable medical device applications.
The valve body is molded from polybutylene terephthalate plastic with seals made of durable fluorocarbon elastomer. The Series 090 actuator combines high reliability with low power consumption, so battery life and device longevity are maximized. The Series 090 valve is also compliant with all relevant Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Conformité Européenne (CE) directives.
