    DeltaV Blog: Simplifying Pneumatic Valve Manifold Engineering and Installation

    Wikipedia defines a solenoid valve as an: … electromechanically operated valve . The valve is controlled by an electric current through a solenoid : in the case of a two-port valve the flow is switched on or off; in the case of a three-port valve, the outflow is switched between the two outlet ports. Multiple solenoid valves can be placed together on a manifold . Pneumatic valve manifolds are used in many industries...
