Schneider Electric AL-17x Series, AL-18x Series Solenoid Air Valves

Solenoid Air Valves
AL-17x Series, AL-18x Series

For applications where an electrical circuit is used to control a pneumatically-operated device. Used to direct supply air to a pneumatic device when the coil is energized or de-energized, depending on the supply and exhaust air connects.

• Open frame or junction box construction accommodates a wide variety of NEMA 1 mounting locations.
• Available in 24, 120, 208, 240, or 480 Vac models.
• Supplied with 18 in. electrical leads for ease of installation.
• Corrosion-resistant plastic body.
• Barbed fittings for 1/4 in. O.D. plastic tubing.
