Guide for Using Miniature Solenoid Valves

When you don’t want to compromise design, miniature solenoid valves allow you to fit a powerful tool inside a small device. Equipment designers commonly incorporate these solenoid valves into pneumatic designs. pneumatic valvesThe medical industry frequently uses these devices for medical instrumentation that could not work without them (catheters).

Outside the medical industry, there is a race to make small devices that work better. This frequently frustrates designers that are forced to make compromise after compromise. Inaccurate design and improper pneumatic valve selection can do real harm. How is a designer to balance the need for high functionality with small, lightweight devices when these things seem to contradict each other?

Many experts turn to miniature solenoid valves because they allow for freedom of design with the limited compromise of performance. These valves can perform repetitive tasks without falter if paired with the correct pneumatic valve choice. When correctly matched, the device will function as desired.

Considering that more and more electronics are becoming mobile, designers want to build products that are lightweight. When this is a design consideration, every ounce counts. For some industries, weight requirements are regulated by the federal and state government. Oxygen generators, which use these valves, are not allowed to weigh more than ten pounds. All the generators in the device contain multiple mini solenoid valves.

Miniature solenoid valves offer:

  • Reliability
  • Repeatability
  • Long service life
  • Lightweight
  • Higher flows
  • Optimized power performance
  • Full standard compliance
