ASCO Solenoid Valve Technology

Electronically Enhanced Solenoid Technology

Electronically enhanced solenoid technology incorporates world-class electronics to achieve a dramatic reduction in power usage and a new benchmark for reliability. Rigorous testing simulated operation over 5 years without any product failures. The capability to accept both AC and DC power without losing functionality or performance enables its use across numerous applications. The technology includes 2-way, 3-way, and 4-way solenoid valves and is now available with Class I, Division 2 approvals.

Solenoid Function

Solenoid technology is an electro-mechanical device that controls the flow of a media through a pipe by opening or closing the valve orifices. The solenoid assembly consists of a coil, plunger, and sleeve assembly. In a normally closed valve, a plunger return spring holds the plunger against the orifice, preventing flow through the valve. When the coil is energized, a magnetic field is produced, raising the plunger and allowing flow through the valve. The solenoid is an electromagnetic part of a valve, comprised of a coil, core tube, core and enclosure.
