Solenoid Valves and Valve Manifolds

SMC solenoid valves and manifolds feature low power consumption, high flow rates, quick response times and clean aesthetic designs. SMC solenoid valves are used extensively in the semi conductor, automotive, packaging, medical, specialty machine, and machine tool industries. Whatever your application is, we have a dependable solenoid valve series that will accommodate your most demanding application.


SMC has improved product performance and reliability with the redesigned SY series valve. The SY3000 and SY5000 have the same valve width as their predecessors, but the flow has been increased by up to 80%, allowing the valve size to be reduced. A built-in strainer in the pilot valve prevents trouble caused by foreign matter. By using H-NBR seal material for the main valve and seals, Ozone resistance has been improved. Side, top and bottom port/pipe directions are available to allow flexible installation. The SY is available in body ported or base mounted styles, and can be used individually or manifold mounted.



The 5 port solenoid valves series SQ was designed for applications which demand high speed, high frequency, long life and a precise response time. The SQ uses cassette style valves and manifolds, making it simple to increase or decrease the number of stations on a DIN rail. Valves are available with 12VDC or 24VDC rated voltage. Actuation options include 5 port single solenoid, 5 port double solenoid, and dual 3/2 ported. Manifold variations for the SQ plug-in series include EX510 Gateway-type serial transmission system, D-sub connector, flat ribbon cable connector, PC wiring system compatible flat ribbon cable, terminal block box, or a lead wire kit. The SQ plug lead units are available with D-sub connector, flat ribbon cable connector or PC wiring system compatible flat ribbon cable kits.


SMC Vacuum Generators use compressed air to generate vacuum using a venturi. Vacuum levels down to -25 inHG (-85kPa) is obtained from single and multi stage units with suction flow greater than 7 SCFM (200 l/min.) SMC's air vacuum generators can be connected via a manifold or used individually. These compact devices can also be customized to integrate suction filters, vacuum sensor switches, and supply/release valves onto the generator. Additionally, SMC's generators can be configured to manage distribution of vacuum from a external vacuum source.




Vacuum Padsimage

SMC vacuum cups are designed in a range of 19 diameters from 2mm to 200mm for use in delicate or heavy applications. SMC vacuum cups are available to fit many unusual shapes and are constructed from a variety of premium materials such as Silicon, NBR, Urethane, Fluorine etc. Installation options can be specified on either spring loaded buffers or threaded stems. Special application cups are also available such as check valve, porous material, annulus area etc.

Vacuum Flow Switches

Vacuum Flow switches are widely used for automatic vacuum control for air and inert gases. SMC vacuum flow switches can be used for small electrical loads such as relays and programmable controllers. Other vacuum flow switch features include easy electrical wiring, wide calibration range, high frequency operation and long life.


ZSE10 compact, digital pressure switch for vacuum/compound pressure has been reduced in height by approximately 50% when compared to the ZSE30A.  Up to 10 slave sensors can be set at once using the copy settings function.  Options include direct mount, panel mount or DIN rail mount, and a choice of 2 piping directions.


Series ZSE30A is a high-precision, 2-color display digital pressure switch for vacuum. It has raised rubber button controls that are clearly set apart, simple to operate and soft to the touch. Plug in type connectors take the burden out of wiring work and maintenance. Four different display settings are available.

imageThe ZSE40A(F) series is a high precision digital pressure switch, providing improved functions, performance and variations over the previous ZSE40 series.  Abnormal values can be seen at a glance on the 2-color display.  The settings of the master pressure switch can be copied to up to 10 slave pressure switches, reducing the setting work, and preventing mistakes in setting.  Other features include: simple 3-step setting, analog output, wide variety of piping variations, and a power-saving function for MPa-kPa.  The ZSE40A(F) is also CE, UL/CSA and RoHS compliant. 

The ZSE80 series is a digital pressure switch designed to measure fluids such as tap water, hydraulic fluid, silicon oil, lubricant, fluorocarbon, argon, ammonia, carbon dioxide, air-containing drainage and nitrogen.  Some of the features include 2-color indication, select from back piping and bottom piping, the addition of 2MPa and -101kPa types, also low leakage type, water hammer protection, easy operation, and standardization of CE, UL/CSA and RoHS compliance. 


The ZSE1 series is a compact, vacuum pressure switch available in a single setting with hysteresis adjustment, a double setting/ double output type or an analog output type with hysteresis adjustment. The ZSE1 is lightweight and the optional plug-in connector makes wiring easy and simple.


The ZSE2 series is a compact, pressure switch (for vacuum pressure) and can be integrated with ZX or ZR vacuum systems. The ZSE2 series pressure switch has a quick response time of 10mS and the plug connector option makes wiring easy and simple.


The ZSE3 series is a digital pressure switch (for vacuum pressure) with LCD readout for general pneumatics purposes. The ZSE3 digital pressure switch allows the calibration of two independent outputs. Modular version can be integrated with ZX system.


The ZSM1 series diaphragm type vacuum switch is available in a solid state non-contact or a reed type design. The ZSM1 has a response time of 100 ms. It is lightweight, compact and has a long life. The ZSM1 has a standard shield plate that prevents external interference.

Vacuum Regulatorsimage

SMC vacuum regulator products offer a variety of options including compact and lightweight design, and front or rear mounting of the vacuum pressure gauge. These vacuum regulators also offer standard panel mounting capability, adjustment resolution within 0.13kPa, and 1/8" to 1/2" threaded connection port sizes available.
