I can't figure out what solenoid I would use. Everything I search for comes up with cylinders. Not sure if it's even a sulinoid that I need.

I'd like to have 8 hoses connected to a compressor. I'd like to control which hose releases air to push something off a conveyor belt. Like the image below.

  • $\begingroup$ yep that helped a lot, thanks. I found another image that I added to the original comment. What allows there to be 6 sulinoid valves connected to one source? Or is it one product? $\endgroup$ – SolidCloudinc Oct 28 '18 at 0:56
  • $\begingroup$ Ok figured it out. 3 way pneumatic sulenoid values on a manifold. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – SolidCloudinc Oct 28 '18 at 1:51
