3-way NO solenoid

Unread postAuthor: PVC Arsenal 17 » Thu Nov 18, 2010 6:21 pm

Maybe I'm just stupid... but I can't seem to find one. I need a simple, compact and cheap 3-way Normally Open Solenoid valve. It doesn't seem like an unreasonable thing to ask for, but I can't find one anywhere. I don't want any of that huge, blocky manifold bullshit. I just a want a small cylindrical bodied solenoid that's threaded with 10-32 or 1/8" NPT threads. It seems Clippard has finally failed me.

It'll be used to pilot a QEV at the push of a button. (Current is applied, solenoid vents QEV - Normally Open)

POLAND_SPUD???

Anyone???

I can't seem to open that link, but in any case, an electronic valve is necessary for this application.

Its a manual slide valve, Gun Freak misunderstood and probably thought NO meant "no" when it really means Normally Open

ohh I found this ->

http://cgi.ebay.com/3-2-Way-Solenoid-Ai ... 3cabd58b29

EDIT
Ohh my reading comprehension sucks.
If I understand you correctly the link above does qualify as huge, blocky manifold bullshit (HBMB > now at least I know how to refer to them) :wink:

Either this one

or you'll find one on ebay sooner or later

Thanks for the replies. I'm curious what that fourth "signal" port on that Clippard valve does.

One of their reps pointed me toward the EVO-3-6 which seems to be more or less what I need. I'm not sure how I wasn't able to find it on their website before. I'm going to give it a try and see how it works.

3-Way Normally-Closed Electronic Valve with lowpower
DC solenoid can be directly converted to high
pressure pneumatic power without electronic
amplification.
