I'm trying to find the electronic valves used for ballast systems. My factory ballast has a Orbit valve and they are made for sprinkler systems. The only problem with that is sprinkler systems use 24V DC, so where are they getting these valves in 12V? I need 2 more because I'm adding on to my ballast system.

Thanks

Did you ever find the answer to this? I too am adding more bags and need to know how to wire the valves.

Dug around and found the answer...
The dealer uses the off-the-shelf 24V valve; no special order 12V needed. Appearently the 12V system is more than capable of providing enough power to open the valve(s).

Yes, I went and picked up a valve at home depot for $12 and it works great, the 24v solenoid works fine.
