This motorized ball valve by U.S. Solid is a quintessential device for any tinkerer or DIY enthusiast. Motorized ball valves are very energy efficient and reliable. This model expends NO energy once fully opened or fully closed. This means it can be hooked up ad nauseum with no risk of overheating.
This 1/2 inch stainless steel model opens or closes fully in just 3-5 seconds. To switch between opening and closing, simply reverse the polarity. This can be achieved manually, or by using a DPDT switch as shown in the wiring diagram.
There are a wide variety of possible applications for motorized ball valves. They can be used in different home automation tasks. As a bonus, this valve can be opened or closed only partially, using an Arduino or other control system.
