A valve that can switch on/off the flow of liquid or air at atmospheric pressures, ie., about 100 kPa. Easily connects with thin consumer home/garden plant irrigation hoses. Requires a GlobalAdapter-1201 and a SwitchPower to switch power on/off to the actuator. Comes with 2 female spades crimped on 10 cm wire.

Application examples

  1. Route water where and when you need it, eg. control when to water your plants.
  2. Combine with the Wet, Flow, Moist, Hot, Humid, Air and Light sensors together with SwitchPower actuators to control water valves, to create a full-blown irrigation system for your plants.
  3. Can also be used to route steam or other gases as long as they have atmospheric pressure levels.

Technical specifications

Product Valve-100 actuator
Version 1.0 (September 2016)
Actuator type solenoid
Throughput 11 L/min maximum
Pressure approx. 1 bar, 100 kPa, 15 PSI maximum
Hose connector 4.5 mm (outer diameter)
Control power 10 to 12 V DC, 105 mA (coil resistance 114 Ohm)
Actuator dimensions 60 x 37 x 23 mm (2.4 x 1.5 x 0.91 inch)
Weight 53 g (1.9 oz)
Control connector 6.3 mm male spade, 2 female spades crimped on 10 cm wire
Application notes
  1. Requires 10 to 12 V DC power supply such as the GlobalAdapter-1201.
  2. To switch power to the valve use the SwitchPower controlled by the WiDig or USB-microDig actuator outputs (top row of the connector for sensors and actuators), or Digitizer actuator outputs (ie. the power supply pins of inputs 25 - 32).
  3. Place the 2 female spades crimped on 10 cm wire on the male spades of the actuator and then connect the wires to the SwitchPower.
  4. The inner diameter of the tube or hose has to be approx. 4 mm to fit tightly onto the valve hose connectors. The tube or hose has to be pushed over the edge around the valve hose connector to prevent leaking and/or sliding off of the hose from the valve connector. Common compatible consumer home/garden plant irrigation hoses are 6 mm outer diameter and 4 mm inner diameter.
  5. Cannot be connected directly to water taps since residential water pressure is too high resulting in the valve being unable to close, and the hose possibly slipping from the valve when the valve is closed.
  6. To connect to a source of water, place the hose in a bucket of water such as the water tank of a toilet which is kept full automatically.
