Bronze Star™
Direct Solenoid Operated
Normally Closed
Water or Oil


Employing the latest pulse width modulated solenoid electronics, holding current is minimized while providing a much wider input voltage range. The direct solenoid design is ideal for use in water or oil service applications where pilot-assisted valves will not operate.

Low maintenance and high reliability are hallmarks of the Bronze Star™ line due to the elimination of any small pilot orifices that can clog during operation. In addition, pulse width modulation electronic technology permits a very low solenoid holding current. This minimizes heat and power consumption, resulting in reduced operating costs and virtually trouble-free operation for millions of cycles. Standard operating pressures are from 125 PSI to 250 PSI.
