Numatics logo    

Features high flow in a compact 11mm package 

Numatics 501 Series directional control valve. The general purpose automation valve is designed for directional control and piloting applications requiring compact size, high flow capability, and energy savings. The new 501 Series valve delivers up to two times greater flow than previous models. 

The new sub-base mounted valve is well suited for in-panel valve piloting applications. Its high flow rate, compact size, and optional mounting plate enable efficient use of cabinet space. A dual three-way version enables the placement of two, three-way valves in the space of a four-way valve.

KTM contrast sensor detects print marks quickly and reliably


With its gray-tone resolution, high detection reliability with shiny media and short response time, the KTM contrast sensor make the process for packaging items quickly even more reliable. 


Black and white or color, matte or shiny - with the new ASIC in the KTM contrast sensor, print marks are reliably detected on a wide range of materials.  This improved performance is particularly beneficial for shiny materials such as high-gloss foils and for low contrast and pale colors.

  • Mini housing 
  • High grayscale resolution
  • Increased dynamic range
  • Static and dynamic teach-in in one variant
  • Switching frequency 15 kHz (type-dependent)
  • KTM Prime with IO-Link function
