Solenoid wiring and manifold mount swap...


My original evilbay purchase of a Burkert 6011A with the DIN attached fell through. In my haste I found what I thought was a great deal, probably still is, but is going to be more work.

This is what I got...(photo from listing)


Now I'm a little confused. I was under the impression that DC would have 2 wires. I'm assuming that this just has a ground since it's intended for a multi-manifold installation. Any recommendations on the best way to wire it? I did pick up a power supply rated for the original 6011A I was supposed to get so it should still work here but it only has 2 wires.

Now for my second question. Is it safe to assume that the only difference between this and the 6011A with a threaded base is the base itself? A member here was selling a broken 6011A for parts, I'm assuming I can just swap the bases and have a functional unit?

If that isn't the case, any one know where I can get a single inlet manifold to mount this to?

Many thanks in advance!

While I'm sure there is a small 1/8 manifold out there to fit that thing, I don't think any of us have figured out exactly what it is yet. I would call burkert and try to get a part number out of them.

Second question, yes. You should be able to swap out the bases.

Good news on swapping the bases.

Any idea on the wiring for this thing?
