Latching valve.

PETER PAUL ELECTRONICS CO. INC., NEW BRITAIN, CONN. A small magnetic latching valve is designed for situations in which coil heating is undesirable or continuous power is unavailable. The valve draws approximately 7 watts when energized. It can be used with battery-powered equipment and produces up to 500 psi pressure. The unit requires 30 milliseconds of power to latch or unlatch. Magnetic polarity of coil and magnet forms a pull on the valve plunger to energize, and it remains in position through magnet strength. To unlatch, reverse the field of dc coil voltage.
