A solenoid valve or electromechanically operated valve removes the requirement for a person to manually operate a valve, potentially lowering workforce costs. The valve is instead controlled by an electrical current which passes through a solenoid coil. For applications where fluids are involved, solenoid valves play a key role. They can shut off fluids, release them in controlled measures and even mix fluids together. As with all Festo products their is a varied range of valves to suit a vast number of applications. The below video demonstrates the mechanics of a Festo valve.
