18mm Wide Body and 1/8" Ports Fill the Bill between Mini and Medium Flow Valves
The new Sierra 18 valves are equally ideal where fast signal response (18ms avg.) with moderate flow (.5 Cv, 3-position, .7 Cv 2-position) is required.
Sierra 18 offers 2 and 3-position spool configurations for a wide
variety of applications: All ports blocked in center
Cylinder ports open to exhaust in center, supply blocked
Cylinder ports pressurized in center, exhaust ports blocked
The Sierra 18 is a body-threaded valve that can be directly plumbed or manifold-mounted. Body style valves can also be mounted on low profile manifolds to increase design flexibility.
Coils are Class F rated for 100% duty cycle applications at 122-degrees F (50-degrees C). AC or DC coils can be interchanged on the same solenoid stem. Each Solenoid connector acts as its own junction box, with molded connectors and gaskets to protect electrical connections. Design meets NEMA-4 classifications.
Sierra 18 contains a mechanical valve override that can be tool-adjusted to a locking (push and twist) position or non-locking function.
