Electropneumatic module EPM
The Electropneumatic Module EPM acts as interface between (electrical) power supply / control and a pneumatic SITEMA clamping head.
All pneumatic SITEMA clamping heads with an operating pressure of up to 4 bar and an operating volume of up to 220 cm³ can be pneumatically controlled by the EPM. It is also possible to operate several clamping heads in parallel with one EPM.
The EPM is controlled by a 24V supply and switching voltage. The outlet pressure which is required to open or keep open a pneumatic clamping head is controlled by a control signal. If the voltage fails or the input signal is switched off, the pressure is automatically released from the clamping head, thus e.g. securing a load.
The Electropneumatic Module is used in all applications where the supply of a pressure fluid is difficult. Typical fields of application are e.g. mobile lifting devices or fully electric machines.
