Compact Terminals SCTMb / SCTMc / SCTMi

Intelligence and variability packed into the smallest of spaces

The new SCTM compact terminals from Schmalz are suitable for a wide range of vacuum generator applications. They comprise up to 16 block-mounted SCPM compact ejectors – some of the smallest and most powerful ejectors on the market – put together to make a terminal. The “i” model also offers a wide range of monitoring and control functions for your entire production process – and for use in digital factories.

SCTM configuration

The modular design of the SCTM compact terminal allows for individual configuration. Up to 16 individual ejectors can be block-mounted to form a terminal, depending on the individual user’s requirements. Two block mounting variants are available: The SCTMb, SCTMc and SCTMi variants with pneumatic block mounting, and the SCTMc-MP variant with pneumatic and electric block mounting (terminal with SCPMc ejectors and sub-D plugs).

When selecting your terminal, please note that it is not possible to combine different types. As such, your terminal can only contain either SCPMb, SCPMc or SCPMi type compact ejectors. Within each individual compact terminal, you can choose from a range of nozzle technologies/sizes, connectors and idle positions for the suction valve.

Application

Compact terminal as electrical manifold for controlling and monitoring up to 16 individual vacuum circuits
Handling of airtight workpieces such as display glass, plastic parts, printed circuit boards (PCB), electronic parts or batteries
Use in pick-and-place applications with extremely short cycle times and low space requirements, e.g. SMD machines
Fully automated handling applications without downtime due to intelligent condition monitoring
Use as valve with IO-Link function and condition monitoring in combination with external vacuum supply
Functional diversity in the smallest space
High suction capacity with low interference contour when installed
Up to 16 individual vacuum circuits
Simple control and hosing thanks to central compressed air connection and central exhaust air collection (optional)
Individual design
Basic, controlled and intelligent versions as well as with external blow off function "EB" or external vacuum supply "EV"
Electrical interlocking
Central control of up to seven ejectors via Sub-D multi-pol connection (SCTMc-MP)

* At optimum operating pressure (SCPM 03/05/07: 4 bar; SCPM 10: 4.5 bar)
** For max. length of 2 m
*** The maximum volume flow rate for the EV variant is based on a differential pressure of 600 mbar at the valve. We recommend using a suction capacity of 7 m³/h against atmospheric pressure for the vacuum generator during operation.
