12V DC Solenoid Valve
Introducing the 12V DC Solenoid Valve. Whether you're a hobbyist or professional, this is the perfect valve for all your needs. With its high-grade metal + plastic material, you can be sure that it's durable and reliable for long-term use.
Solenoid valves are control units that, when electrically energized or de-energized, either shut off or allow fluid flow. The actuator takes the form of an electromagnet. When energized, a magnetic field builds up which pulls a plunger or pivoted armature against the action of a spring.
12V DC Solenoid Valve is ideal for sprinkler systems and hydroponics. If you add a microcontroller to it you can do all kinds of cool things like monitoring the soil moisture level and opening the valve when low.
Inner workings of a 12V DC Solenoid Valve
The above image of the 12V DC Solenoid Valve should give us a good idea of how a 12V DC Solenoid Valve works when it has power and when it does not have power.
Simple wiring diagram
The above image is a simple wiring diagram of a 12V DC Solenoid Valve and an Arduino Uno. The above image just shows us that we can use an Arduino to control the 12V DC Solenoid Valve, meaning we can tell the 12V DC Solenoid Valve to open or close when we so desire.

I must say I am impressed with Bot shop service and quick delivery. Received my components here in the Karoo!
Well priced. Thanks
Agent quoted R 486, ex stock.
Electrical supplier R 480, 1 week delivery.
Botshop supplied 2 valves @ R 388.16, delivered to my door next day 11:30.
Work will on my application
Good value for money, an improvement could be to enclose the coil and connections.
