VP01BV Series Solenoid Controlled Modular Venturi Vacuum Generator

VP01 Modular Venturi Vacuum Pump with Integrated Solenoid Control Valve
VP01BV Min Series generators are solenoid-controlled miniature venturi vacuum generators that generate vacuum only when needed, minimizing compressed air consumption. The integral solenoid valve provides instantaneous response for high speed assembly and pick & place applications.
Lightweight and compact, VP01BV generators are placed directly at the point of use to eliminate plumbing between components and to ensure high cycle rates for increased productivity. Dirt tolerant, vacuum filters are not required. Add a Vaccon ultra-miniature vacuum switch or sensor for a vacuum achieved/part present signal.

Features & Benefits
  • High productivity – Cycle rates up to 4800/min for fast part release
  • Minimal air consumption – provides instantaneous vacuum as needed
  • Reliable part detection – factory-installed miniature vacuum switches or sensors
  • Fast Response – installs close to vacuum point – no delay due to long plumbing lines
  • Easy installation – modular design speeds installation and minimizes assembly
  • Reliable – operates trouble-free:
    • Straight-through design, non-clogging
    • No moving parts to wear or clog
    • No flap valves to stick open
    • No maintenance
    • No downtime
