Model RSC-A2 of our plastic valve line is a two-way, direct acting valve with a normally closed operating position. This means that there are two ports in which media flows and the valve will open when energized to allow media to pass through. Taking the energy away from the valve will close it and stop the flow. It works across various media such as water, air and other low viscosity fluids.
The port size is 1/4” Push In Connect used with 1/4" OD Tubing. The orifice size is 2mm. It can withstand pressure up to 115 psi (8 bar) and temperatures as low as 25 F and as high as 175 F. The seal material is EPDM Rubber.
This specific plastic valve has a 120 Volt AC coil with a voltage range that is -+ 10. Its response time is very low; in fact, it acts in less than one second, making it a great choice for all types of applications.
Common uses include but not limited to;
This model is mountable in any position and features a conveniently positioned arrow on the body to indicate the direction of flow. The valve body is threaded at the base and can quickly be mounted with 4mm machine screws.
I used this to replace the solenoid for my fridge's ice maker and it works great. far cheaper than using the overpriced part from the appliance part store just because of the bracket they design it to be attached to. uses an identical power connector too. this was far easier to install as well because of the push connectors.
Used this for an automated dog water bowel filler. Bought the 120V and used a WEMO outlet to be able to turn the feed off and on from my Amazon Echo. Works great!
Just as you see in the pic! Four mounting holes, easy terminals to connect AC to, perfect for any 1/4 push application.
