Solenoid Valves Rain Bird

Solenoid Valves

Solenoid valves are opened by the irrigation control by applying voltage. Standard irrigation controls operate with 24 Volt AC. Since the polarity is irrelevant, two connecting cables of the same colour are used. When solenoid valves are without current, they are always closed.

As standard, solenoid valves for irrigation have a single inch thread (1"). The valves are usually available either as a model with female thread (1") or male thread (1") .

Expert tip

Solenoid valves with male threads are preferred due to their higher stability, screw connections can be mounted on these.

Caution! on no account may male threaded metal fittings be screwed onto plastic female threads.
