Valves: Electrical Devices : Accessories: Solenoid Valve
Releasing solenoid valves are utilized for relieving pressure from the Pressure Chamber allowing the push rod and roller assembly, on the Model RCW Valve, to move off of the clapper assembly and actuate the valve. Typically, releasing solenoid valves are normally closed valves. Once the releasing circuit is energized, the solenoid is moved to its open position allowing water to flow through the valve. The solenoid valve is utilized in conjunction with a Listed releasing fire control panel. During releasing panel selection, panel compatibility with the releasing solenoid valve must be verified. This information can typically be found in the panel manufacturers Installation Operation and Instruction Manual or by contacting the panel manufacturer. Ensure all electrical connections meet the requirements of the local and/or National Electrical Codes.
