What is this electrovalve / solenoid valve.

Unread postAuthor: victorjung » Fri Jan 13, 2012 3:48 pm

Hi, everybody, here some pics of a solenoid valve from an expresso machine.
I don't know how it works, how to plug it and how to use it, i also don't know ig it's a flow regulator or an "all or nothing" valve. That's why i post pics, i hope some of you will know what is it.
SO ANY INFORMATIONS ABOUT THIS ARE WELCOME!
like why three connectors? why the brass on the bottom? etc ...

Ahhhh... What you have there is the Canuter Valve.

That is a very important valve there, and does lots for the flow control of the fluid in it's orifice.

It most likely causes a binary response to the mass flow of the liquid in it's path.

The three connectors look to be directly converting the flow of electrons to the flow of expresso in a relatively direct relationship.

I would most likely put it back on your expresso machine if you want to continue getting expresso out of it.

The valve is for water dispensing.
Read both pdf files in link.
Here is the valve type:

The 3 terminals are for a DIN connector. The parallel terminals are power and the middle terminal is earth (safety) ground.

Just use the outer terminals with "Fastons" like your violet wires have.

here that brass part was erplaced with plastic... apparently the valve isn't supposed to handles more than just a few atms so it wasn't needed

Many water valves in appliances are plastic body. This is normal for domestic water pressure much like PVC pipe. It is corrosion resistant and lead, copper, cadnium, etc free.

Based on your pictures and the cutaway diagram on link that I posted,
here is what I think how it functions.

Thanks a lot, i thought it was working something like that, but it's only proof if th small metal bar is totally compressed on the bottom of the big piece, and i dont see how it could be, cause i tried to plug in on the 230V 50Hz from home, and it just vibrated a lot but wasn't proof, and with no plug, it's also unproof...

It appears to be a 207 Volts DC valve, if you look at the label.
A better focused picture of the label would help.

OHH yes, it's DC.... i think it's kinda hard to have 207 V in DC, i think, i will abort the idea to reuse it for something...
