Thinking of making a smart gardening system at home? You need to control the water flow with microcontroller or computer, but didn't know how? Well, we have the soluton, the 12V solenoid controlled fluid valve. Simply connect a fluid source to the 3/4" threaded inlet and it will interrupt the flow until 12V is applied to the fast-on connectors on the solenoid.

Note: This is not a gravity-feed solenoid. This means that you will need enough water pressure to fully open the valve. Check the datasheet below for exact details. It operates at a minimum of around 3 PSI, allowing around 3 L/min of flow. Although the datasheet shows the valve working at 220 VAC, it's actually 12 VDC. A garden hose or other pressurized system should work just fine.

We notice that the datasheet solenoid specifications don’t match this part, anyway it is given by the supplier.
Here are the real measurements:

  • The coil DC resistance is approximately 39 ohms.
  • The operating current is about 300 mA at 12VDC, and it will take it continuously without overheating.
  • The connector TPI on both sides of the device are the same, at about 13.5 (GHT is 11.5 TPI).
  • The pipe connectors are not GHT (garden hose thread); they are standard ¾" PVC type pipe thread that you can find at home supply and plumbing stores.
  • This is a pilot assisted diaphragm valve, which means that it has a distinct input and output (it’s not a bidirectional valve). There’s a screen filter on the input side. The tabs that jut out are for mounting the solenoid; they are on the input side and have metric threaded metal nuts embedded in them.

Hi there, can i know what is the material? ( Lucas, 18/12/2019 )
Hi, the material for this product is Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET Polymer). Thanks :)
Lmao i can buy a gardening system for less than this item... scammer ( fitry jalil, 21/05/2019 )
Hi, for more info you may email to sales@cytron.io
what is the actual diameter for this valve ? ( asheanuar, 01/10/2016 )

Hi, the diameter the valve is 3/4 inches. 

If you have further question, you can ask at our technical forum, as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks. :)

What minimum pressure for 12V Solenoid Valve - 3/4 Inches to activate the valve? ( miss aurora, 14/08/2016 )

Hi,

This valve operates at a minimum of around 3 PSI, allowing around 3 L/min of flow.

For further inquiry, kindly visit our technical forum as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks.smiley

 

I purchased the valve and tested it out with the circuit on your tutorial, unfortunately i did not get any result, i tried constructing the circuit 5 times with two valves, i am using a air compressor with air inside, will air effect the valve? will it function or is it strictly for water usage, take note, the pressure is is around 50-90 psi from the tank. Is there an alternative method to turn the valve ON without the use of arduino, or another circuit that can be used to control the valve. ( Saad, 23/04/2016 )

Hi, it is more convenient if you can post a topic in our technical forum and share your problem (with photo of hardware setup, project details and etc.) as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks. :)

can I have an example on arduino programming for solenoid valve controlling? ( arzan, 17/03/2016 )

Hi, You can check out this tutorial as reference. Thanks. :)

Do have a stock and how long for a shipping ( zairi, 27/02/2016 )

Hi. Yes it is available. Normally it will take 2 to 3 days for Malaysia. You can refer here under shipping policies for Shipping Method and delivery time. Thanks. :)

Hi, i wanted to use this valve to flow out water from a 5L tank, is the pressure enough to activate the valve? ( Mary, 26/10/2015 )

Hi. You need to calculate the pressure in order to know whether it is enough or not. This valve operates at a minimum of around 3 PSI, allowing around 3 L/min of flow. If you have further inquiry you can continue the discussion in our technical forum/facebook group as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks. :)

When this item will available in your stock? ( asyraf, 19/09/2015 )

Hi,

 

It will ready After 1-2 Weeks.

When this item will available in your stock? ( Anuar, 25/08/2015 )

Hi,

 

the valve will be ready next week. Thanks.
