Vacuum pump manufacturer Leybold has added two new pump sizes to its TURBOVAC i/iX series for applications from research and development and analytics to industrial.
The new additions are sizes 850 i/iX and 950 i/iX, adding to the 90, 250, 350 and 450 sizes to make a total of six models. The new sizes provide improved vacuum performance, including higher pumping speeds and compression values and simple, intuitive operation. The company says that with some applications, the integration of the new 850 i/iX and 950 i/iX models can lead to a significant reduction in the number of pumps required. The Turbovac i/iX series has flexible, integrated drive electronics. EthernetIP, EtherCAT and Profinet Anybus options have been added to the existing Profibus, RS232 and RS485 communication modules. They are all available as IP54 versions. The EthernetIP, EtherCAT and Profinet modules have an integrated web server. The entire Turbovac i/iX series can be controlled and monitored via the Turbo.Control i. The controller is suitable for integration in high-vacuum applications and compact system solutions.
