This 1” brass motorized ball valve is affordable enough for the home hobbyist, while durable enough for titans of industry. The valve body and stem are made of durable brass. It actuates using 9V to 24V of DC power, and will fully open or fully close in 3-5 seconds. Once in position, it automatically stops using energy. This is important as it will never overheat.This is a key difference between motorized ball valves and solenoid valves. Most solenoid valves are constantly energized, while these electrical ball valves are not, making them a safer and more eco-friendly option.
The attention to detail in this valve extends beyond the metal. The casing is rated as IP65. This ingress protection rating is used to define how well the casing does at sealing. For U.S. Solid motorized ball valves, they have the highest IP rating possible against solids (6), representing a seal that protects against all solids, even dust. For water, the rating (5) represents seal protection against water spray from all directions. This means the casing and body are all built to last.
Motorized ball valves have a variety of interesting and convenient uses. Many choose to use them in home water systems. They are also a great tool for use in home automation projects. Automatized irrigation systems will often use several of these valves, and this valve is a great choice for that usage. Lastly, all of the U.S. Solid motorized ball valves work well with Arduino automation systems.

SAFE AND RELIABLE- Comprised of strong, durable brass, this valve is safe, and built well; Lifespan of 80,000-100,000 cycles means a valve that will last
NPT THREADING- 1” brass threading, manufactured and measured according to National Pipe Thread standards; This electrical ball valve is standard port, meaning the bore in the ball is nearly 1”; Perfect for home automation projects
9V-24V DC- Works effectively over entire voltage range; Will open or close valve in 3-5 seconds; Limit switch cuts off power after valve is fully open or fully closed; Ideal for projects where an automatic return to the closed position is not desired
2 WIRE REVERSE POLARITY SETUP- Simple two wire connection, valve completely de-energizes after opening or closing
ALTERNATIVE TO SOLENOID VALVES- Automatically cuts off power once fully open or fully closed; This reduces likelihood of overheating, making it a great alternative to solenoid valves for projects where a valve needs to be open for an extended period of time
