Specs for Standard and Pigtail

  • Low voltage Inlet Valve for Non-electric Air Driven powernozzles
  • 24 Volt allows use with Air Driven Turbo Hoses that provide on/off on hose
  • Uses "pig-tail" low volt power cord that's plugged into household outlet to supply electricity to electrical power nozzle
  • Inlet valve is placed less than 6ft of household 110v outlet
  • The Standard inlet valve will mount to the mounting bracket (another installation component that mounts behind the wall) with two screws that go through the inlet plate and secure into the mounting bracket
  • Direct Connect Hoses will NOT work with Standard (Universal) Valves

Specs for Electric

  • Compatible electrical and air driven powernozzles
  • Valves are hard wired with 110 volt in new construction (easiest) and existing homes to supply electrical power to power nozzles (Licensed electrician recommended)
  • One step valve - where central vacuum hose are wired and prongs plug into inlet valve powering: suction, signal & power brush.
  • The Direct inlet valve will mount to the electric mounting bracket (another installation component that mounts behind the wall)
