Function: 5500-MAN-EX01-230VAC

The 5500-MAN-EX01-* combines a solenoid valve for purging and a needle valve for pressurization in one manifold design. When the valve is energized, the solenoid valve is open and allows for a high flow rate of protective gas into the enclosure. When the valve is deenergized, the flow through the internal needle valve is adjustable by a flathead screw driver through the needle stem on the manifold. The solenoid valve is used for purging, leakage compensation, and temperature control by signals from user defined points on the 5500 control unit.

Mounting hardware includes 3/8" tube compression fittings mounted on the manifold for input and output flow, 3/8" tube compression bulkhead fitting for getting flow into the enclosure and certified sealing washers with bolts to mount the manifold to the enclosure. Also included is 1 meter of 3/8" poly tubing with 3/8" poly tube stiffener inserts which allows the connection of plastic tubing to compression fittings without collapsing the tubing.

The 5500-MAN-EX-01-* is certified for Zone applications. For NEC, Class/ Division applications see the model number key for proper manifold selection.

The 5500 valve system works with the 5500 control unit and EPV-5500 vents.

The 5500 system has ATEX and IECEx certification for Zone 2&22 installation.
