Low jetproof type means that no water intrudes inside an

VX3
2/3 Port Solenoid Valves for Fluid Control
Specific Product Precautions 1

Series

Be sure to read this before handling. For detailed precautions on each series, refer to the main text.

Selection

Wiring

1. Minimum operating pressure differential (VXED, VXP,


VXR)

3. Use voltage which is within 10% of the rated voltage.


In cases with a DC power supply where importance is
placed on responsiveness, stay within 5% of the rated
value. The voltage drop is the value in the lead wire
section connecting the coil.
4. When a surge from the solenoid affects the electrical
circuitry, install a surge voltage suppressor, etc., in
parallel with the solenoid. Or, adopt an option that comes
with the surge voltage protection circuit. (However, a
surge voltage occurs even if the surge voltage protection
circuit is used. For details, please consult with us.)

Warning

Caution

Select an appropriate valve size while referring to the solenoid


valve flow-rate characteristics.

Caution
1. Leakage voltage

Particularly when using a resistor in parallel with a switching element and


using a C-R element (surge voltage suppressor) to protect the switching
element, take note that leakage current will flow through the resistor, C-R
element, etc., creating a possible danger that the valve may not turn off.

Leakage current

Operating Precautions
SOL.

AC/Class B built-in full-wave rectifier coil: 10% or less of rated


voltage (VX3: 5% or less)
AC/Class B/H coil: 20% or less of rated voltage
DC coil: 2% or less of rated voltage

2. Selecting options

The fluid handled will differ depending on the valve options. Select
optimal options for the fluid.

3. When the fluid is oil.

The dynamic viscosity of the fluid must not exceed 50 mm2/s.


The special construction of the armature adopted in the built-in
full-wave rectifier type gives an improvement in OFF response by
providing clearance on the absorbed surface when it is switched ON.
Select the DC spec. or AC spec. built-in full-wave rectifier type when
the dynamic viscosity is higher than water or when the OFF response is
prioritized.

4. When used at low differential pressure (VXZ).

When used under the conditions with a differential pressure of less


than 10 kPa (0.01 MPa) and a circuit flow rate of less than 1,000
dm3/min., use Made to Order Specifications -X500B.

1. If a regulator and valve are connected directly, they


may vibrate together and cause chattering. Do not
connect directly.
2. If the cross-sectional area of piping for the fluid supply side is
restricted, operation will become unstable due to inadequate
pressure differential during valve operation. Use piping size
for the fluid supply side that is suited to the port size.
3. The behavior of the diaphragm valve becomes unstable under
the conditions that the circuit flow rate is restricted to 40% or
less of the maximum flow rate on the solenoid valve flow-rate
characteristics. This may cause unstable valve activation. So,
select a solenoid valve with an appropriate flow rate size
while carefully checking the circuit flow rate.

Warning
1. Make sure when using pilot type 2-port solenoid valves that the flow
direction is from 1 (IN) to 2 (OUT). The valve is designed based on a
flow direction of 1 (IN) to 2 (OUT) and harnesses the fluid pressure of
port 1 (IN) when the valve opens or closes. If reverse pressure (2
(OUT) to 1 (IN)) is applied, it may lead to a reduced service life or
cause damage to parts early on due to chattering or pulses from the
main valve (diaphragm, piston, etc.). If there is a possibility that
reverse pressure will be applied, take countermeasures by installing
the check valve, etc. at the downstream side.
When installing the check valve, allow ample space between the
valve and the check valve. If it is placed near the valve, it may cause
chattering and pulses in the main valve.
