Parker says its industrial climate control solution offers an on/off valve with terminations designed to plug into trucks’ auxiliary equipment to regulate heating and cooling systems. The solution is designed to act as a component of the truck’s auxiliary equipment; when plugged into the system, it helps extend the life of the engine by eliminating the need for idling.

The two-way normally closed or normally open valve is available with an orifice diameter of 1/2-inch or larger and a process connection of 1/2-inch NPT. The valve operates with a Cv factor of 4.0 or better and features bubble-tight internal and external leakage; constructed of brass, it is assembled with FKM and fluorocarbon seal material.

Electrical specifications include a continuous-duty Class H molded coil enclosure with an open-frame yoke and electrical leads. The valve’s electrical capabilities allow for 12 volts of direct current and 11 to 16 watts of power consumption, depending on the valve type, according to Parker; electrical connectors are available upon request.

The valve is designed to withstand a maximum pressure differential of 25 PSI or more and a maximum ambient temperature of 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, the valve offers connectors on leads, barb fittings in ports and a mounting bracket upon request.
