Power management company Eaton today announced the advancement of its AxisPro industrial valve platform, including new two-stage valve offerings and release of its all new Pro-FX Configure software. The latest capabilities are designed to offer ease of configuration, enriched user flexibility, enhanced reliability and improved diagnostics to a wider range of industrial machinery.
Eaton’s AxisPro valves are now available in two-stage D05 (NG10) and D07 (NG16) designs. The valves provide the same high performance and closed-loop control capability of Eaton’s single-stage AxisPro valves, but in a higher flow package. The new sizes round out the AxisPro valve portfolio, which features single-stage and two-stage valves that accommodate flow rates of up to 375 lpm.
“The new two-stage valves help fill the gap in flow capacity between our existing single-stage D05 and two-stage D08 offerings,” said Susan Harris, global product manager for industrial valves, Hydraulics, Eaton. “The AxisPro valves bring the easy configurability, precision, repeatability and reliability to mid-range applications, helping OEMs improve machine performance and productivity.”
Eaton has also updated Pro-FX Configure, the programming software for AxisPro valves. Featuring parameter-based tuning and a complete wizard-based setup, the all-new Pro-FX Configure 2.0 enables users to configure and tune AxisPro valves by following a streamlined, step-by-step graphical workflow. The new version significantly improves ease-of-use resulting in easier valve setup that will greatly reduce setup time and costs.
“Pro-FX Configure 2.0 is valve configuration software the way it should be: smarter, faster and easier,” Harris said. “The program simplifies everything from setup to tuning to commissioning, helping OEMs get machines to their customers faster.”
AxisPro valves enable smarter, more productive industrial machines. Featuring onboard motion control, sensors, diagnostics and communication, the valves are available in three performance levels to suit a variety of applications.
