Air Saving Products
Sustainably Supporting Automation
SMC’s products are designed to reduce unnecessary air consumption and electrical consumption while still meeting rigorous performance expectations that meet or exceed existing specifications.
By adopting the latest SMC technologies, we will help you lower energy costs and boost efficiencies, resulting in both cost savings and labor savings.
KN, Insert Fitting Type Air Nozzle
JSXFA, 2 Port Dust Collector, Pulse Valve
Dust collector reverse pulse jet valves are the filter cleaning components for baghouses (dust collection systems) for preventing dust explosions by removing particulates from the air. The JSXFA dust collector valve is engineered with a robust elastomer diaphragm that requires no spring to shift, enhancing its service life to 10 million plus cycles while producing faster response times and energy savings.
The JSXFA diaphragm valve will open and close rapidly to create a short, intense blast of air with sonic shock wave to dislodge accumulated dust from bag filters and cartridge filters without disrupting regular operations.
The JSXFA can be actuated by either solenoid or air operated pilot valves, available with enclosures.

Sensors and Switches
Air Management System
The Air Management System is available in two basic configurations that vary by the standby regulator used. The A type utilizes the electro-pneumatic regulator while the B type uses the manual type standby regulator. Both types include an isolation valve and can be configured as remotes (SA) or as fieldbus connected bases (EN, PN). The hubs have an extra IO link port for connection to additional devices that can communicate through the system.
ISA3 Digital Gap Sensor, 2 Screen 3 Color, IP67
The ISA3 is a unique sensor that uses air pressure to verify the presence and proximity of a workpiece. The placement of raw materials can be confirmed before machining or other fabrication operations. The correct seating of a component into a jig or fixture can generate a switch output to trigger the next assembly sequence. ISA3's new display quickly and clearly summarizes workpiece status for the operator. Establish the switch point in 3 easy steps. Lower air consumptions, zero exhaust noise, easier wiring, and excellent anti-clogging measures round out this 3rd generation gap checking device. ISA3 is CE and RoHS compliant, with an IP67 enclosure rating.
JMB, Air Cylinder, Double Acting, Single Rod
Series JMB tie rod actuators are double acting, single rod, compact and lightweight. The JMB is available in intermediary bore sizes so that larger bores have the same external dimensions as standard bore sizes.
MGZ, Double Power Cylinder
The MGZ series is a non-lube double power air cylinder available in both rotating and non-rotating styles. The MGZ's unique design doubles the pressurized area for extension making the MGZ an ideal cylinder for lifting and pressing operations. The front end lock style MGZ holds the rod when extended.
CVQ, Compact Cylinder with Solenoid Valve
SMC series CVQ offers a compact cylinder and valve integrated for compactness. This series offers space, energy, and labor savings. Reducing the piping between the cylinder and valve offers approximately 50% reduction in air consumption. Choose from side and axial piping. The CVQ series is designed so that the D-M9* series auto switch can be mounted flush with the cylinder profile.
CDQ2B-X3150, Air Saving Compact actuator
CDQ2B-X3150 is an Air Saving Compact actuator that can reduce air consumption up to 46%. The increased energy savings is achieved by a built in exhaust return circuit that uses of the air exhausted from the extension side to supply the non-working retraction side.
The ZK2*A series is an energy-saving generator with 93% reduced air consumption. It has a 50% increase in suction flow compared to other single stage SMC generators. The ZK2*A also has various mounting options to choose from.
ZL112A, Multi-stage Generator
Vacuum Generator series ZL series is a compact, multi-stage, high-efficiency vacuum generator. The ZL is available with a built-in vacuum sensor with digital readout for design flexibilty. Other features include built-in suction filter, exhaust silencer, and one-touch tube fittings.
KK130, S Couplers
S coupler series KK employs a unique connection method. A slim body design and large effective area are achieved with a construction that does not use steel balls or valve springs and therefore does not restrict the flow path. Together with a reduction of the body size, pressing parts and resin parts are used to achieve an overall weight reduction.
ASR/Q, Air Saving Speed Controller
AS-R/AS-Q can reduce air consumption by 25%. The AS-R functions to reduce return stroke pressure. The AS-Q functions as a rapid supply and exhaust to avoid sudden extension of piston and avoid delay in pressure charge. The updated AS-R/AS-Q now combines multiple adjustments to one to simplify operations.
Low Power Consumption
IDF*FS, Refrigerated Air Dryer, Sizes 100~150 w/Energy Saving Function, Standard Inlet Air Temperature
Series IDF*FS refrigerated air dryers are larger units with improved ambient (113°F/45°C) and inlet (140°F/60°C) air temperatures. This energy saving design reduces the amount of heat exhausted by the dryer and can reduce power consumption during periods of reduced demand.
*** These units are not available for use in the United States or Canada ***
Solenoid Valves-4 5 Port-SY Series
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.
VF Solenoid Valves - 4 & 5 Port
Series VF, a five port pilot solenoid valve, offers large flow capacity in a compact size. The VF is available in many variations including three types of manual override and four types of electrical entry. Common exhaust for main valve and pilot valve is also available.
VP Solenoid Valves - 3 Port
SMC's VP300/500/700 series solenoid valve, offers high flow capacity and reduced power consumption (1.55W standard, 0.55W with power saving circuit). The VP series may be used as either a selector valve, or a divider valve. It is available in a normally closed or a normally open style. The series is vacuum applicable up to –101.2kPa.
