The LHQ Series are Quiet Operation 3-port miniature solenoid valves used to flow air and compatible gases in applications where sound reduction is critical.
The LHQ Series Quiet Operation solenoid valves feature whisper technology to reduce actuation noise. A typical solenoid valve has an inherent clicking sound when energised, which is caused by the metal-to-metal contact of the moving armature and stationary core. With whisper technology, the inherent actuation noise is reduced by 50% to a sound level measure of less than 37 dBa, ultimately making this series of solenoid valves ideal for improving patient comfort in bedside medical instruments.
As a part of Lee’s HDI Platform of solenoid valves, the LHQ Series are also compact, lightweight valves with very low internal volume. Their small footprint allows them to be easily manifold mounted, making them the perfect solution for applications where a large number of valves must be designed into the smallest space possible. The LHQ Series solenoid valves are available as 3-Port valves in three different mounting styles: Plug-In, Face Mount and Ported.
3-Port Design Mounting Styles
The 3-port LHQ Series solenoid valves are available in Conventional and Lo-Lohm models, and in Plug-In, Face Mount and Ported styles.
