The N4C-ED1 is a 24V DC ½” FNPT electric plastic solenoid valve. Its body is composed of NORYL GTX830 plastic, giving the valve its high temperature and chemical resistant properties. This plastic resin also provides low water absorption and sufficient stiffness. Two 18” lead wires extending from the coil allow for connection to your own supply.
The valve is very compact in size, allowing for use in many situations. It is only 2.78” long, 2.35” wide and 3.40” tall. The valve is also very conservative on power, requiring only 6 watts to actuate. The response time is extremely quick being less than a second. The valve is has a normally closed configuration, which means at rest without power the valve is closed. Power is required to open the valve in addition to a minimum pressure. This minimum pressure required to open the valve is due to its pilot operated nature.
The valve’s NEMA 4 rated enclosure allows the valve to be used for both indoor and outdoor applications. This enclosure protects against rainfall and ice forming damage in addition to windblown dust. While the valve is safe from splashing and hose-directed water, it should never be fully submerged.
