Apr 05 2006 Read 2462 Times

An ultra-miniature solenoid valve measuring only 0.12" diameter by 0.4" long is the latest product to be introduced by miniature component specialists Lee Products Ltd.

The Series 120 Solenoid Valve is an ultra-miniature, magnetically latched, two way solenoid valve, featuring high performance flow switching characteristics. Weighing just 300 mg, the valve requires only a momentary 1 ms pulse to switch the state (+5 VDC to open, -5 VDC to close) and is ideal for compact battery powered pneumatic applications such as air piloting, lab automation (lab-on-a-chip) and other power-sensitive OEM flow switching devices. The Series 120 Solenoid Valve is only 0.12" O.D. x 0.40" long but will flow 1 SLPM of air at 5psid and features reliable bi-stable performance and quiet operation. The valve is rated for a pressure range of vacuum to 15 psig with a maximum differential pressure of 5 psi.

The wetted materials of the valves are; PEEK, 430 stainless steel, ceramic and epoxy.
