Product of the Month | GX1
Continuing our series, we’ve chosen the GX1 as our product of the month for January 2017. Happy New Year!
Longtime customers may recognize the name “GP”, which was a previous generation, highly successful high pressure valve built by Proportion-Air. However, after our engineers and designers went back to the drawing board, they discovered a much better solution: the GX1.
The GX1, which is a complete re-design of the GP, improves on its predecessor with higher accuracy, resolution and repeatability. These improved specs create a more versatile and useful product that’s also held in a package that is 50% lighter than the GP. The GX1 can provide 1:1 direct control of up to 1,000 PSI or it can be used to pilot a volume booster and achieve higher flows with the same accuracy Proportion-Air customers have come to love.
Power management is one of the GX1’s most beneficial features – an on-board split power supply allows true zero for command and monitor, despite it being powered only by a conventional single ended power supply. It also uses top-of-the-line hardware to minimize current draw and heat buildup. With power-indicating LEDs, the GX1 is the complete high pressure control package.
Specs for the GX1 are well-suited for your pressure regulation needs. For example, the GX1 has a pressure range from vacuum to 1,000 PSI, accuracy at ±0.25%, max flow at 26 SCFM at 1,000 PSI and operating temperatures between 32º-158ºF.
The versatility of the GX series, including both the GX1 and GX2, are shown when paired with other high pressure volume boosters. In this setup, both products can achieve a greater flow than by their own.
Accompanying the GX line is a variety of helpful and informative documents that not only explain the GX’s uses but also the difference between it and the previous generation.
