The result is precise, linear pressure control within a closed-loop system.

According to Clippard, the Cordis HP500 valves feature smooth linear control, real-time adjustable PID control, integrated internal or external sensor feedback and customizable pressure ranges and mounting options.

The Cordis HP500 uses a microcontroller, integrated pressure sensor and two Clippard EV electronic valves. The inlet valve is connected to the regulated supply pressure and the exhaust valve is connected to a port that vents excess pressure into the atmosphere. Once a command is increased, the inlet valve opens up to allow supply pressure to pass over the sensor element that provides an active feedback for the microcontroller to satisfy the set point in the process. If at any point the sensor detects a value higher than the set point, the exhaust valve will open to vent off the excess pressure to maintain a stable and accurate control pressure in the process.

The Cordis HP500 pressure regulator is adaptable to a variety of sensors that can close the loop around pressure. For more information, visit the Clippard website.
