Care should be taken when specifying latching valves in certain applications. Excessive G forces (10 or greater) in the same direction as the armature and valve stem movement may “de-couple” latching valves, causing the valve to shift position to the other state. Measures need to be taken to remove or accommodate excessive G forces.
Applications where high vibration or where excessive shock are present, or may be present, are typically not suitable for latching valves. Consult factory.
