Using “Hit and Hold” Electrical Control on Direct Acting Solenoid Valves

Download the white paper
In direct acting solenoid valve applications where battery life and/or heat generation is a concern, the utilization of a “hit and hold” electrical signal can result in significant power savings and
heat reduction while still maintaining the required pneumatic function.

This white paper explains:

  • Basic direct acting solenoid valve theory.
  • Test methods to characterize actuation and drop-out current parameters.
  • PWM hold control methodology.
  • Recommendations and typical examples to support end users in reducing power consumption and heat generation in their applications.
