What Are Solar Powered Valves

Solar Powered Valve An off-grid solar power system allows you to install and operate a motorized valve in locations where a traditional 120VAC wired power source may be impractical, expensive or not available. Solar power systems can be the perfect solution for saving money controlling valves in remote locations.

A solar powered valve is a device that regulates, directs or controls the flow of a fluid, gase or fluidized solid by opening, closing, or partially obstructing various passageways. Solar powered valves are technically motorized valves.

Solar powered valves have many uses, including controlling water for Irrigation and industrial uses for controlling processes in remote areas where standard utility power is not availabel.

Solar Powered Valve

A solar power system for a motorized valve consists of a solar module, a solar charge controller, a rechargeable solar deep-cycle battery, power converter, regulator or inverter and a weather-proof outdoor enclosure. This system is used to collect solar energy and the store electrical power, and then convert the stored power into the correct voltage to operate the pump.

What Size Solar Power System For A Motorized Valve?

Solar Pump System To select the correct size solar power system to power a valve there are a few things that must be known.

1. What is operating voltage and power consumption in amps, or watts of the valve motor?

2. How many times each day will the valve be required to open and close.

3. How long does it take for the valve to open or close.

4. What is the geographical location the solar powered valve will be installed.

5. How many days of battery reserve power are desired for "no sun" days?
