A graphic asking, "What is a Solenoid Valve?"

What is a Solenoid Valve?

A “solenoid valve” refers to a valve that is controlled by a solenoid. The action of a solenoid is on/off or snap acting. In order to operate, the solenoid must receive an electric current from a switch. The current magnetizes the coil, moving the plunger in the solenoid and sending a pneumatic signal to the
