Highly Varied and Energy-Efficient


The configured working units from Rexroth’s CVI series are delivered fully assembled and tested

Rexroth presents new cylinder valve units – complete with online configuration

Cylinder valve units provide the ideal solution for integrated, decentralized pneumatic applications, such as flap controls in large-scale facilities. These working units enable the efficient usage of compressed air thanks to reduced tubing lengths and the option to choose between different valve series. With the CVI series, Rexroth presents a new generation of working units that features excellent variation options. The configurator allows the CVI series to be configured easily and efficiently, while it also contains the complete technical documentation for the respective configuration, including CAD data.

Two ISO cylinder series with diameters between 32 and 125 mm can be combined with components from five different valve series to create individualized pneumatic working units. This enables a targeted adjustment to existing operating conditions, for example for applications with limited installation space or harsh working environments. The modular scraper system with exchangeable scraper modules also contributes to this flexibility.

Excellent compatibility is guaranteed for the individual CVI series components, which can be configured to match specific applications. Maximum energy efficiency – with compressed air savings of over 50%, depending on the application – can be achieved with flow rates dimensioned to meet exact needs, short tubing connections and an optional pressure regulator. The latter component is positioned between the main valve and the cylinder, thus enabling low-pressure return strokes. Stop valves are available as additional components to bring movements to a halt and prevent the unintended activation of systems.

In addition to the components, Rexroth also offers the corresponding tools for a simple configuration of individual working units: Using the configurator available in the online catalog, working units can be planned down to the last detail – with just a few simple clicks.

The configurator contains the full spectrum of components and accessories, and creates the optimum CVI working unit based on the options specified for the application. The configurator generates the complete technical documentation, including CAD data, dimensioned drawings, item drawings and an individual part number. The optimized logistics process guarantees short-term availability. And for simple, fast assembly, working units from Rexroth are tested and ready-to-plug-in on delivery.
