+1. The connections are a hassle to work with.

You can drill them and then tap them to work with 1/8", but again, a hassle.

Some alternatives to the clippard mouse solenoid. Both of the above pics have 0.65 watts and 10/32. No idea about pricing.

I wonder why people don't go for those "cool touch" solenoid. They are low watts and are cheap, most commonly found on Aquateks. It's a chinese manufacturer if I recall correctly. There is also a 2.4 watt warm to the touch solenoid from CS (British) that is on my Aquatic Life, again, they sell for cheap. I'm not sure about the maximum pressure they can hold but I'm certain they are usable to our hobby. Why the huge love for hot burkert ?

Do you think this solenoid will work for our purposes:

I didn't see one on e ba y. If you still see it listed, can you let me know? Thanks in advance.

Not sure about the orifice size on that one. I think 1/8 might be too big? Blah, no idea. I know that it better to get a smaller orifice size for our hobby.

If you do a search on fleabay, there are some nice 10 - 20 dollar solenoid that look decent. Of course the drawback is that it is foreign asian made, might be a bit of a risk.

Thank you FlyingHellFish.

Can you please list some criteria we should look into when looking at the solenoids listed on e ba y? Like the pressure tolerance and things?

Sure, I'll try but I'm learning about them as well.

Voltage: AC 120v, if it's DC then you need an adapter.
Watts: anything under 4w will be good. After 7+ hours the solenoid gets hot.
Normally Closed - NC
Ports: 1/4 or 1/8 ports - Depending on your build
Orifice Small size: - example 0.06 cv , the clippard mouse is 0.025
PSI: - 0 to x value. Depending on what you need.


I think I might just get a clippard mouse with the adapter, try my luck with those fragile 10/32 ports.

The ASCO 411 valves pictured were (somebody check my facts please) Numatics "S" series valves before Numatics was folded into ASCO. They're SS, and while the .pdf says they have mounts with two 1/8" NPT ports, I've only been able to find mounts with 1/8" in and 10-32 out ports ...which makes them about the same as a Mouse.

Still, they're sexier (IMO) than Mice, and while the mount isn't SS, the price tag for both solenoid and mount is similar. So take your pick unless you can find a 1/8-1/8 mount.
