The U.S. Solid 1/2'' motorized ball valve in stainless steel with automatic return is a blessing to many a home tinkerer. The body and stem on this valve are made of stainless steel. The valve will actuate when 85V to 265V AC power are brought to it. In this automatic return valve, the valve is Normally Closed. When energized, it will open in 3-5 seconds. Afterwards, limit switches will keep the energy output to a negligible amount. If power gets cut out, the valve will again return to a closed position. Most solenoid valves are fully energized whilst open, which can lead to overheating. This valve takes in such little energy once fully opened, that it will NEVER overheat.
Auto return valves are an important option. If being used to control your water system, it is important that it shuts off automatically in case of a power outage. This can prevent leaks and flooding. Additionally, this valve comes with an IP rating of 65. This ingress protection level means the casing will keep the electronics free of any dust, and is safe even when being sprayed with water from any direction.
