After the 2022 launch of the CMS HD heavy-duty multistage vacuum pump series, COVAL is completing its offer with the VX version, an intelligent and communicating pump. Like previous versions, the new CMS HD VX vacuum pumps combine operating power, robustness, modularity, and compactness.
The principal enhancements to the CMS HD VX multistage vacuum pumps provide a more ergonomic user interface and permanent communication with the operations environment. The VX version is thus fully connected to Industry 4.0.
Above all, the design of the Human Machine Interface (HMI) has been designed with particular care, to improve information to the operator and help them react to problems more efficiently.
The IO-Link communication interface, which complies with the international standard IEC 61131-9, makes the CMS HD VX vacuum pump easy to use and allows for fast and cost-effective installation, continuous diagnostics, centralized parameterization, and efficient communication with higher-level protocols (EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT, etc.). All setting and diagnostic functions are available and modifiable on mobile devices (Android and iOS) thanks to the HMI with NFC technology and the dedicated COVAL Vacuum Manager application.
The CMS HD VX qualities are ideal for pick-up and transfer in applications such as handling porous parts or emptying large volume tanks.

Modularity / Maintenance
The CMS HD multi-stage vacuum pumps have been designed to withstand the demands from all your applications and to guarantee a high level of performance. However, handling certain parts may require replacement or cleaning.
The modular design of the CMS HD multi-stage pumps ensures easy maintenance as the functions are all easily accessible.
The CMSHD__VX Heavy Duty multi-stage vacuum pump series includes various features that enable setup, use, and diagnostics in all situations and at all levels (operators, process, networked factory), with the aim of keeping the use and management of the pumps as straightforward as possible, thus allowing for their easy integration in your smart factory.
The IO-Link system provides efficient real-time communication between CMSHD__VX_ multi-stage vacuum pumps and any higher-level protocol (EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT, etc.) required to monitor the production line. It can be used to control pumps, configure settings, and get feedback to ensure maximum productivity.
. Straightforward wiring, installation, and setup
. Availability of diagnostic status data
. Simpler preventive maintenance and vacuum pump replacement without manual setup, and more
. Onboard installation and diagnostic tools.
To make it easier to use and set up multi- stage piloted vacuum pumps, the CMS HD series has a remote HMI as an accessory.
. Place the HMI in an easily accessible and visible area
. Use one HMI for several CMS HD multi-stage vacuum pumps
. Copy settings fromoone pump to another.
. Use the CMS HD multi-stage vacuum without any HMI connected
The NFC wireless technology integrated in remote HMI and in the COVAL Vacuum Manager application makes all setup and diagnos- tic functions available and modifiable on your mobile devices.
Additional features :
. Read/write settings with the power on or off.
. Copy settings from one CMS HD to another
. Backup up to 5 setting configurations
. COVAL support: send a report including the settings and diagnostic data to COVAL for technical support
