Have you ever wanted to control the flow of a liquid using your computer or microcontroller, but didn't know how? Well, here's how: The 12V solenoid controlled fluid valve. Simply connect a fluid source to the 3/4" threaded inlet and it will interrupt the flow until 12V is applied to the fast-on connectors on the solenoid.
Note: This is not a gravity-feed solenoid. This means that you will need enough water pressure to fully open the valve. Check the datasheet below for exact details. It operates at a minimum of around 3 PSI, allowing around 3 L/min of flow. Although the datasheet shows the valve working at 220 VAC, it's actually 12 VDC. A garden hose or other pressurized system should work just fine.
The pipe connectors are not GHT (garden hose thread); they are standard ¾" PVC type pipe thread that you can find at home supply and plumbing stores.
This is a pilot assisted diaphragm valve, which means that it has a distinct input and output (it’s not a bidirectional valve). There’s a screen filter on the input side.
These valves have not been used BUT they have been removed from a previous product at the factory, therefore it is possible to see where screws have held the valve in place.
