When you’ve already got one of the best ranges of compact regulators in the market place there’s really only one way to go – even smaller! And that’s exactly what the development engineers from automation control experts, SMC, have done with their new 14 mm wide compact manifold regulator -Series ARM5. Designed initially for the automotive and electronics industries, Series ARM5 can be directly or DIN rail mounted, and uses many of the same key features as the larger models in the ARM range, such as a backflow function as standard, a single unit type and an optional built-in pressure gauge. However this new, extremely compact series now includes a low 0.35 MPa pressure set option and the removable one-touch fittings can be changed to accommodate tube sizes of 4, 6 or 8 mm. With further options including centralised and individual supply types, this new compact ARM5 offers similar space, maintenance and time saving benefits as the existing ARM range.
