The N5C-EC1 model from our electric solenoid valve line up is a ¾” NPT port valve that requires power from a 12 Volt DC source. For a ¾” valve this one is very compact and lightweight for when a small valve is required. The valves body is formed from Noryl GTX830 which is an NSF61 approved plastic making it ideal for those customers looking to ascertain NSF61 compliance.
The valve has a NEMA 4 equivalent coil that is encapsulated and perfect for outdoor use. The coil itself can be easily connected with the 18” lead wires to your own power supply. The valve is fast acting, in fact it will actuate in under a second.
This specific valve is Normally Closed and Uni-Directional. This means the valve will only open when powered and can flow in a single direction. The valve will not hold back pressure for instances like filling up an air tank.
This valve will operate within a pressure range of 5 – 115 PSI. A minimum pressure is required to fully open the piloted diaphragm.
We needed a 12V valve to turn off the water supply to our mobile tanks. This was the valve we needed. This is where we go for all of our valve needs!
