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. The motorized ball valves are also great for projects with low pressure. Motorized ball valves can work even with gravity fed arrangements.
This 1in brass 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. This brass model is an excellent choice for use in irrigation or for hydroponic systems. As a bonus, this valve can be opened or closed only partially, using an Arduino or other control system. This is a great alternative when flow needs restricted but not completely shutoff.
