The N5C-EB1 is a ¾” female NPT port solenoid valve that is compact and lightweight. This solenoid valve is molded from Noryl GTX830, stainless steel components and an EPDM seal making it ideal for potable water applications.
This type of piloted diaphragm valve is a normally closed with a uni-directional flow. The valve will only open while powered and remain in the closed position when unpowered. It has a fast response time and will actuate in under a second.
The coil is low power requiring less than 6 watts to activate. The coil itself is epoxy encapsulated and water resistant to be used outdoors or in spray down locations. The coil can easily be contacted via its 18” lead wires.
This solenoid features an EPDM seal making it compatible with a wide range of media types. As with all diaphragm solenoid valves a pre-filter is recommended to keep the orifice free from debris and clogging.
Product arrived quickly and in decent packaging. Everything has worked great so far. I purchased mainly since it was cheaper than other options.
