3-Way Solenoid Valves

MAC’s 3-Way Valves have 3 ports - inlet, outlet (cylinder) and exhaust. They are generally used to operate spring return cylinders or as pilots for larger diaphragm or piston operated valves. 

Small 3-Way Valves

All MAC small 3-Way valves are direct operated poppet valves. The range is for air flows up to 1.2 Cv. 

The four series of solenoid valves that fall in this section (34, 35, 100, 200) all operate on the same design principal: a push type solenoid acting on a balanced poppet. The fifth series (1100) is a range of mechanically operated valves using the 100 series body assemblies.

Large 3-Way Valves

All MAC large solenoid 3 way valves are solenoid pilot operated and are for air flows from 1.5 Cv and higher. The pilot of these valves is a balanced poppet, the main valve a balanced spool. Additionally, the pilot for the 52 series is a 4 way pilot design that maximises the shifting forces in both directions.

The valves can be divided into two groups:

  • 52, 55, 56 series
  • 57, 58 & 59 series
