DMQ Tips MEMS for Industrial Applications

24 March 2015

Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology company DMQ Microstaq has unveiled its next generation silicon servo valve (SSV) device for industrial control systems.

Dubbed the SilQflo, the latest in DMQ’s flagship SSV series is said to be 36% smaller compared to PDA-3.10, a similar device from DMQ released two years ago. As a result of the reduction in size, DMQ said the MEMS chip will allow designers to create compact designs and reduce costs due to less material usage. DMQ plans to phase out its older MEMS devices by the end of this year.

The SilQflo SSV is designed to work with control fluid flow that can be used as an individual unit or as an integrated component of a more complex device, DMQ said. It can also be used for proportional control or coupling with the Universal SuperHeat Controller/Sensor (USHX) or similar feedback system such as a servo control valve, the company said.

The SilQflo is available for customer evaluation now.
