The SMC air service unit is an ideal unit for small and medium size robot applications needing basic air prep and includes a shut off valve, regulator, digital pressure switch, and soft start valve. All pneumatic components are from SMC.
This air service unit is ideal for applications needing digital signals to ensure air pressure is at a required pressure before an application starts. Additionally, the soft start valve can be tied into the safety circuit to shut down pneumatics when an emergency condition is engaged. A distribution block is also included upstream of the soft start valve for additional peripherals that should not release air pressure in an emergency stop condition.
This design includes a backing plate for easy mounting on an extrusion frame or other machine base. You can purchase a laser cut backing plate directly from SendCutSend or manufacture yourself from the CAD model below (NOTE: You will have to tap the holes yourself for a laser cut part).
