Electric Solenoid Valve Timer
As you know, a solenoid valve is an electromechanical valve used to control liquid or gas flow. Solenoid valves come in different types, but the two most common ones are pilot-operated and direct-acting.
Solenoid valves with a timer control can let your system regulate the fluid easier. It’s easy to control and primarily used in air compressor systems, air tanks, filter machines, and other applications.
What Is a Solenoid Valve Timer?
Solenoid valve timers can be applied to regulate the solenoid valves to your preferred schedule. A DIN-A connector can be used to place most timers directly on the solenoid valve coils. They can be applied in shower timers, lubrication systems, condensate drains, etc.
Solenoid Valves With Timers
In any pneumatic system, solenoid valves with built-in timers help the user automate on and off time of the solenoid valves. There are various time cycles, such as a repeat cycle, delay, single shot, delayed repeat, and single cycle.
Let’s understand each time cycles of a solenoid valve with a timer:
Repeat Cycle – When the input voltage is provided to the timer, the output becomes de-energized throughout this period. The output activates at the end of this OFF time, and the ON time starts. The output de-energizes when the ON time ends and the OFF time begins again. While input voltage is present, this off/on sequence continues indefinitely. The output de-energizes and the timer resets when the input voltage is removed.
Delay – When power is applied, the timer goes into the OFF state for a period T (is the amount of time it takes for a full cycle of vibration to pass a certain point), then transitions to ON state indefinitely.
Single Shot – When power is applied, the timer goes into the ON state for a period T, then transitions to OFF indefinitely.
Delayed Repeat – When power is applied, the timer goes into the OFF state for a period T2, then back to the ON for a period T1.
Single Cycle – When power is applied, the timer goes into the OFF state for a period T2, then switches back to ON for a period T1. It then turns OFF and stays that way indefinitely.
Solenoid valve time switch or solenoid valve timer control is a device that can cause a system to start or stop operating at particular times. It is a control for electrical devices used to turn the electrical equipment on or off.
