solenoid selector valve

solenoid selector valve

A selector valve operated by a solenoid. This type of selector valve is used when it is desired either to locate the valves close to the actuating cylinders or avoid plumbing that is necessary if the valves are located in the pilot's compartment and directly engaged. This results in savings of weight and space and reduced installation and maintenance problems. A provision should be made for engaging the valve in case of electrical failure.
