Response time information for ACL solenoid valves

The response time (Rt) of a solenoid valve is the period of time passing between the energisation (or de-energisation) of the coil and the moment when the outlet pressure reaches 50% of its peak. Example of a circuit test Solenoid valve response times The response time depends on the type of valve, the nature of the media, the pressure and the current (AC or DC), if these values are measured at the moment of electrical connection or disconnection.
