Vacuum Generator – CEK Series (Integrated)

Parker - Vacuum Generator - CEK Series The CEK is perfect for non-porous applications such as material handling or critical applications involving glass or sheet metal handling. The CEK single stage vacuum generator is similar to the MC72 with the addition of a vacuum memory valve. As long as there is compressed air, the valve will maintain vacuum “on” during an output power loss, such as an emergency stop. In addition to this valve, an air-economizing valve is included and provides air economizing savings. If the degree of vacuum decays, the integrated sensors will signal to the PLC to turn vacuum back on, the air economizing valve will turn off, and the unit will create a higher level of vacuum in the system. This cycle will repeat and thus conserve compressed air while holding the part. During loss of power, the air economizing valve will turn off and the vacuum memory valve will maintain the degree of vacuum. Other integrated components include valves for vacuum and blow-off functions, a blow-off flow regulating valve, a vacuum filter, as well as an exhaust silencer and vacuum check valve. Optional MPS-23 pressure sensors reduce cycle time and can be used for air economizing to conserve air during part transfer. Inline versions can be mounted in manifolds up to 5 stations.

Vacuum Generator – CVX0260B Series (Integrated)

Parker - Vacuum Generator - CVX0260B Series
The CVX0260B is ideal for non-porous applications that require fast response of large vacuum and blow-off release flow rates, an emergency stop management system, and programmable air-economizing features. The CVX026B is a 2 station MC72 vacuum generator with the addition of an M12 quick connect or DeviceNet electrical package which, combined with the integrated MPS-23 pressure sensors, provides all the programming necessary for air economizing functions.  CVX0260B has additional functionality to prevent dropped parts due to loss of output power. During an emergency event or power failure, when the vacuum command signal is lost, the system will detect the presence of a part and continue to operate in the vacuum mode, creating a high degree of vacuum as long as compressed air is provided to the unit. If the system detects that a part is not present, each vacuum channel will remain closed and eliminate unnecessary air consumption when it is not required by the system. Each vacuum generator is operated independent of the other. Therefore, if one generator has a part on, only one generator will create vacuum and use compressed air in an emergency stop event. Other integrated components include valves for vacuum and blow-off functions, a blow-off flow regulating valve, a vacuum filter, as well as an exhaust silencer and vacuum check valves.

Vacuum Generator – CVXCEK Series (Integrated)

Parker - Vacuum Generator - CVXCEK Series
The CVXCEK is perfect for non-porous applications such as material handling or critical applications involving glass or sheet metal handling. The CVXCEK is a 2 station CEK vacuum generator with the addition of an M12 quick connect electrical package which, combined with the integrated MPS-23 pressure sensors, provides all the programming necessary for air economizing functions. The CVX0260B has additional functionality to prevent dropped parts due to loss of output power. This unit provides air economizing functions during loss of output power, increasing the opportunity for conserving compressed air. As long as there is compressed air, the vacuum memory valve will maintain vacuum “on” during an output power loss; and the air economizing valve maintains the unit in the air economizing mode. Only with the loss of both input and output power will the unit turn off the air economizing mode and create a high degree of vacuum. In either event, the degree of vacuum will be maintained and the part will be held to the vacuum cup with compressed air. Each vacuum generator is operated independent of the other. If one generator has a part on, only one generator will create vacuum and use compressed air in an emergency stop event. Other integrated components include valves for vacuum and blow-off functions, a blow-off flow regulating valve, a vacuum filter, as well as an exhaust silencer and vacuum check valve.

Vacuum Generator – MC22 Series (Integrated)

Parker - Vacuum Generator - MC22 Series
The MC22 is a light weight complete vacuum package for factory automation. The MC22 includes vacuum generating and blow-off release valves included with the unit. The small foot print allows the unit to be located close to the suction cup for maximum performance. The MC22 has additional integrated components such as a regulating blow-off needle, vacuum filters, exhaust mufflers, and an optional vacuum check valve. Integrated check valves offer air economizing options with the MPS-23 and MVS-201 pressure sensors. Additionally, the MVS-201 has an output for vacuum confirmation and a controlled output that interfaces directly with the blow-off release pilot valve. This eliminates a PLC output required for low-off release. The sensor automatically activates the blow-off release when the vacuum signal is removed. This is an excellent option for existing applications with only one PLC output and the user wants to add air economizing without changing the PLC Logic. The unit can be ordered normally open or normally closed and be assembled into a maximum 8 station manifold.
