Valves and Controllers

Auto Lab Systems supplies a range of valves and controllers to compliment their core range of products. These include the MSV2X800 Media Switcher, a microprocessor controlled value unit, the MSV300 media selector and the VS610 10 port series valve,

MSV2X800 Media Switcher

  • The MSV2X800 Media Switcher is a microprocessor controlled Valve unit capable of controlling up to 16 3Way Solenoid Valves in 2 Blocks. The unit can be supplied with 1 Block and retrofitted with another Block.
  • Each block can be mounted separately.
  • The MSV2X800 unit uses Dual-Voltage switching circuit technology with Pulse Width Modulation Voltage control to ensure the Valves (and hence the media running through the Valves) are kept cooled when switched.
  • The unit is supplied in separate cases, for the Controller and for each Valve Block. Wetted materials are either PEEK or FFKM (SIMRIZ, Perfluoroelastermer)

MSV300-6 6 Media Selector

  • The MSV300 is a Media Selector capable of selecting up to 6 different Media’s and distributing each media into 7 Common ports for analytical chemistry or other applications.
  • The selection can be performed through RS232 or from the keyboard.
  • There are two versions. One with ¼-28 screw fittings for the common ports for Flow rates up to about 40 ml min-1.
  • The other unit has M8 fittings for the common ports for Flow Rates up to about 150 ml min-1.
