Latching Solenoid Valve generates minimal heat.
Press Release Summary:
February 24, 2014 - Designed and tested for 4 ccm max at 80 psi, Model L310 requires 50 ms pulse to shift from one position to another. Power is removed and latching function holds position, offering energy savings for applications when valve remains open for long periods of time. Since continuous power is not required to maintain energized position, coil heat rise is temporary and minimized. RoHS and REACH compliant, 3-port valve is available in 2-way or 3-way models and diverter or selector versions.

Humphrey Announces the New L310 Latching Solenoid Valve
Press release date: February 20, 2014
Based upon the proven Humphrey technology of the balanced-poppet, direct-acting 310 solenoid valve design, the L310 Latching Valve has low power consumption and low heat generation offering potentially tremendous energy savings over traditional solenoid valves applications where power is limited or coil heating is unwanted.
Standard single solenoid valves require electrical power while holding the valve in the energized position. The L310 Latching Valve needs a 50-millisecond pulse to shift from one position to another. Power is removed and the latching function holds the position, offering significant energy savings for applications when the valve remains open for long periods of time. Continuous power is not required to maintain the energized position, especially beneficial for batterypowered applications or when continuous power supply is limited.
Since the L310 Latching Valve does not require electrical power to maintain the actuated position, the coil heat rise is temporary and minimized. This makes L310 an ideal choice for applications where the effect of the temperature is a concern.
Developed for maximum utility, each 3-port solenoid valve meets a variety of functions with its multi-purpose classification. Plus, Humphrey’s stringent requirements for extremely low leak rates still apply — designed and tested 4ccm max at 80psi.
Other attractive features include:
• 2- or 3-way
• Diverter or Selector
• RoHS and REACH Complaint
• Applicable for the full pressure range to 80psi, including vacuum
