2-Way Solenoid

The two-way solenoid is a valve that opens and closes flow depending upon the electrical state of the coil. Installed in the valve pilot circuit, it controls the valve to open or close. The solenoid can be installed in series with a hydraulic control pilot to override the pilot and close the valve (e.g., OCV Model 127-80, 108-4), or by itself to make a simple on/off valve, e.g. OCV Model 115-2.


  • Provides On/Off (Open/Close) control of main valve.
  • Interfaces valve operation with timer, relays, probes, etc.
  • Manual Override operation available.
  • Available in weatherproof or explosion-proof enclosures.
  • Wide range of voltages in AC / DC.
  • Available energize to open or energize to close.
  • Brass or stainless steel bodies available.
