The standard MINI-MIZER two- and three-way valve is engineered to accommodate a variety of pneumatic applications requiring high cycling rate, small flow and low wattage, such as battery operation, microprocessor control and printed circuit board type applications. It can function in a temperature range of -40 to 150F, and is available in a variety of coil voltages, with power consumption as low as 0.5W. It features a captured seal construction that reportedly enables easy design of custom manifolds.
