Series 5000 Rectified DIN 43650 Solenoid Valve Connector

Canfield Connector’s R5000 Series solenoid valve connectors incorporate full-wave bridge rectifiers inside the DIN 43650 Form “A” / ISO 4400, EN175301-803:2000 connectors.  This standard permits industry interchange-ability and has been embraced by the solenoid valve industry worldwide.  The R5000 converts alternating current to direct current reducing coil burnout due to valve sticking.  Also, direct current eliminates AC “hum” inherent to alternating current.  Features include the ability for the user to wire the connector into existing installations.  Wire connections are made inside the connector housing and the wire inlet is either PG9 strain relief, 3/8″ or 1/2″ conduit.  The R5000 has a maximum current rating of 1 Amp continuous with maximum wire gauge diameter of 14 AWG.  An indicator light is offered for instant diagnostics and to aid setup and installation.
