Over the years as solenoid valves have changed and reduced in size, the solenoid valve connectors have changed as well. Designed to conform to EN175301-803 (formerly DIN 43650), or to “De Facto” standards, Mencom solenoid valve connectors are available in 5 different interfaces (Form A, Form B, Form C as well as Industry Standard Form B and Industry Standard Form C).
