ASCO 342-S Series General Service Solenoid Valves

Brand: ASCO

The ASCO Series 342-S, also known as 8342, is a line of high-flow, slide-style 4-way valves available with single or dual solenoids.

Its direct-acting operation and high-flow construction make it ideal for analytic and diagnostic equipment, biofuels, dust collector systems, heating equipment, and refining applications.
  • Dual-solenoid operation: solenoid may be energized momentarily (1/10 second) or continuously
  • Mechanical detent on dual solenoids holds last position, even after loss of electric power, pneumatics, or pressure
  • No minimum operating pressure differential required to shift valve
  • Optional flow control regulates cylinder speed independently in either direction
  • Mountable in any position
  • Available in direct mount constructions
