The ElectraValve Electric inlet includes a built-in low-voltage terminal so direct-connect hoses plug right in, removing the need for a power cord. Electrified Inlets provide you with a simple one-step operation to plug in a Current-Carrying hose, eliminating the need to carry around an extension cord which simplifies the vacuuming routine.
The ElectraValve Electric Wall Inlet Valve is a door or port that allows a 1.5" standard diameter hose to fit into a 2" receptacle for a central vacuum system. Central Vacuum Mounting Brackets and Extensions may be needed also, When the Central Vacuum Hose is pushed into these outlets, it will then activate the central vacuum unit to turn on. This will activate a circuit via a metal band located on the end of a typical central vacuum hose. This in turn sends a low voltage signal telling the main central vacuum to turn on. Most Wall Inlets consist of universal inlets, low voltage inlets, or electric (direct connect) inlets, aka super valves. Central Vacuum Wall Inlets come in different sizes, colors, and dimensions to suit the decor of your home. Most inlet openings measure 1.5" diameter (excluding Vacuflo and Budd) to accommodate 99% of all central vacuum hoses on the market today.
