Solenoid Valves

Solenoid Valves are designed around a coil,which when energised moves a spool. The spool diverts fluid between ports in the Solenoid Valve body. The fluid (by changing ports) causes a change in state of a fluid power Actuator which operates a Valve.

The signal (power) which causes a Solenoid to change state comes from the Control System and depends upon the process which the factory operates on.

Functional description of a Solenoid is denoted by the number of ports and numbers of positions i.e 3/2 is 3 ports and 2 positions. Common port configurations included;

2/2 – for on/off signals

3/2 – to control single acting actuators

5/2 – to control double acting actuators
