This kit provides everything needed to hook-up a double-acting pneumatic cylinder and have it go in and out when power is applied via wall socket (110VAC) or power supply (12VDC / 24VDC). Appropriate for cylinders up to 2" bore (cylinder not included with this kit).
This is what you get:
2 x Male Connector Push-On Elbow 1/8NPT Threads
3 x Male Connector-Push-On Fitting
20 feet of 1/4" Polyethylene Tubing
2 x Breather Vents
1 x 4-Way Solenoid (choice of 12VDC, 24VDC, or 110VAC)
To control the speed of the cylinder you can use two of our Speed Control Mufflers (this kit uses the 1/8 inch thread size).
What options should you choose?
Voltage: 110VAC runs off of normal household power, just add an optional AC power plug and the valve will activate when plugged in. 12VDC and 24VDC both require an optional DC power supply to activate. If you are using a controller to activate your solenoid valves check with the controllers documentation on which voltage to choose.
Fittings: This kit comes with two elbow fittings with 1/8" NPT threads for your cylinder or application you will be using the kit with.

When power is applied to the solenoid will the cylinder open and close automatically until the power is removed?
No, the shaft will extend when power is applied and only retract when power is removed. Automation requires a controller such as a PicoBoo or BooBox Flex.
