Wider range of ODE so­le­noid valve coils

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

“We now have the widest range of wa­ter so­le­noid valve coil volt­ages in New Zealand.” This his is the claim made by ODENZ the NZ sup­plier of ODE liq­uid and steam so­le­noid valves.

The com­pany says the usual coil volt­ages are; 12DC, 24DC, 24AC, 110AC, 240AC and 400AC. In com­ment­ing on the ex­ist­ing coil range an ODENZ spokesper­son said: “We have a gen­uine 240-volt AC coil, bet­ter suited to o NZ con­di­tions than 220-volt coils.”

More ob­scure volt­ages are now sup­ported in­clud­ing l di 6DC, 12AC found on some wa­ter treat­ment ap­pli­ca­tions, 48AC and DC, 110DC some­times used on rail­way ap­pli­ca­tions, as well as 230DC.

Latch­ing coils are also now avail­able. These only re­quire a short DC voltage pulse to switch a valve on and have it re­main on. To switch the valve off again only re­quires a short DC pulse with the po­lar­ity re­versed. These coils ef­fec­tively con­vert a sin­gle so­le­noid spring re­turn valve to op­er­ate like a dou­ble so­le­noid valve.

ODENZ com­pany di­rec­tor John Ker­shaw added: “In ad­di­tion to these coils sav­ing power, they are re­ally use­ful for bat­tery op­er­ated valves as the valve can stay on but not con­sume power thereby ex­tend­ing bat­tery life.

“All of these so­le­noid coils can op­er­ate a range of ODE valves from 1/8” BSP up to 3” BSP, which makes our range very flex­i­ble in terms of chang­ing coils and car­ry­ing stock.”
