Humphrey Products and their affiliated company, Koganei have created a light-weight, low-power Solenoid Valve that is the world’s smallest to date. The new Micro 3-port 005 Series from Koganei, measures 5.9mm (0.232 in) wide, making it the ideal choice for device and equipment miniaturization.
The 005 Series is ultra compact and low mass weighing 4.5 g (0.159 oz) and can be mounted, as standard, in two orientations to match your piping direction. Adding and subtracting valves to a uniquely designed, split manifold is easy. Integral barbed ports make installation quick and efficient.
