This valve is not a gravity-feed solenoid, meaning it requires sufficient water pressure to fully open. The valve operates at a minimum of approximately 3 PSI, allowing for a flow of around 3 L/min. Despite the datasheet indicating the valve operates at 220 VAC, it's actually powered by 12 VDC. Please note that a 350 GPH pump may not provide enough pressure for this valve, but a garden hose or other pressurized system should be suitable.
This solenoid valve is ideal for a range of applications, from DIY projects to industrial automation. Whether you're working on an irrigation system, a water cooling project, or a home automation system, this valve provides you with the control you need. It's an excellent tool for any project requiring precise control over fluid flow.
One of the unique features of the 12V Solenoid Valve is its ability to interrupt the flow of liquid until the required voltage is applied. This makes it a reliable and efficient choice for managing fluid flow in various projects. It's a durable, high-quality component that delivers excellent performance and longevity.
For more detailed information about the 12V Solenoid Valve, consult the datasheet (AQT15SP) provided by Sparkfun. It provides comprehensive details about the valve's specifications, ensuring you have all the information you need to successfully implement it in your projects.
