The NITRA Pneumatic Automation Link (PAL) series is an electro-pneumatic system that can include electrical I/O or pneumatic valves or both. A system can be controlled by an Ethernet/IP master or direct wiring (for exclusively pneumatic valves). Assemblies are rated for IP65 and are intended to be machine mounted. Power, I/O and network connections are made via standard connectors.
The Pneumatic Automation Link (PAL) system is defined as an electro-pneumatic system as it can contain both electrical I/O as well as a solenoid valve bank. A single assembly can combine solenoid valves of various types, digital or analog I/O and common power sources for all.
Using a limited variety of basic components, many different configurations can be purpose-built. PAL series valves are compact yet have high flow ratings (Cv) and high performance. The system can be controlled by direct wiring if only pneumatic valves are used, or via EtherNet/IP if a combination of electrical I/O and valves are part of the application. To simplify wiring and system design, DC power is connected through a central module using M8 connections. All PAL components come with an efficient diagnostic system.

NITRA PAL series electrical and pneumatic interfaces connect the system to compressed air, control signals, EtherNet/IP, create a local expansion subsystem and terminate the system.
I/O modules for the NITRA PAL electro-pneumatic system include discrete DC I/O modules, analog I/O modules as well as temperature modules.
Solenoid valves and bases for the NITRA PAL electro-pneumatic system include a selection of modular solenoid valves and bases for supporting valve banks.
