Taco’s newest Zone Sentry zone valve with an inverted flare is ideally suited to retrofit and new construction work. The zone valves improve the overall performance of any hydronic system that uses a zone valve. Uniquely, Taco’s zone valve line uses microcircuit-based logic to control a gear-driven electronic actuator that drives a ball valve-based body design. The valve is available with either a normally open or normally closed actuator. The valve can be installed in any direction, in any orientation. Snap-in quick connects on the back of the valve make for a simple, secure wiring hookup. A green LED shows full functionality of valve operation. Zone Sentry valves were designed primarily for baseboard, fan-coil, radiator, convector, heat pump and radiant applications. The valves are available in 1/2”, 3/4” and 1” sweat or NPT and inverted flare (less fittings) and inverted flare (with 3/4” sweat fittings) and draw only 1.44 watts.
