Subminiature Solenoid Valves Sip a Low 0.65 Watts of Power

July 21, 2010
Gems Sensors & Controls, a market leader in fluid sensing and control solutions, introduces the energy-efficient E Series family of pneumatic solenoid valves. E Series solenoid valves are specifically engineered for air and dry gas applications, and feature a low power consumption of just 0.65 Watts. A nickel-plated body and coil housing construction produces a highly durable, corrosion resistant valve. Featuring a fast response time, with high-pressure and high-flow capabilities, E Series solenoid valves are ideal for application in medical and respiratory healthcare devices, printing machinery and sorting equipment, automated packaging equipment, or air monitoring systems.E Series solenoid valves feature a compact cylindrical body, with diameters less than ¾-inch (19 mm), and lengths under 2 inches (50.8 mm). Seal and o-ring options include Viton®, nitrile and EPR and silicone.They are available in multiple 2- or 3-way configurations including Normally Open, Normally Closed, and Multi-purpose and Directional Control 3-way models. E Series valves offer orifice sizes ranging from .032 to .078 inch (.81 to 1.98 mm), and port configurations that include #10-32 straight thread, M5 x 0.8 threads, manifold mount and bottom under-seat port.
