Valves - Wire Distance

These tables are designed for quick reference and are set up to provide maximum wire runs, given the information at the bottom of the table. Maximum one-way distance in feet between controller and valve heavy-duty solenoid: 24 VAC, 350 mA inrush current, 190 mA holding current, 60 Hz; 370 mA inrush current, 210 mA holding current, 50 Hz. The tables represent a single active solenoid. The wire distances should be halved with two solenoids operating simultaneously on the same wires.
