A valve regulates the flow of a media –  gases, liquids, granulates or fluidized solids – by opening, closing, or partially obstructing the passageway. Two types of valves are commonly used: shut-off valves allowing only either an open and closed state, and continuously adjustable valves which include proportional and throttle valves.

Size, energy-efficiency and reliability are key factors that must be taken into consideration by developers designing electronic valve control solutions.

We have a range of discrete power switches including MOSFETs, IGBTs and Triacs, intelligent power modules (IPM), monolithic intelligent power switches (IPS) and motor drivers as well as a large selection of 32-bit STM32 microcontrollers and humidity and temperature sensors as well as connectivity solutions for high-efficiency valve designs.
