The Model VML195A Lighted Wall Inlet Valve (Almond) provides a connection point for a central vacuum hose, controls the central vacuum power, and seals the vacuum system when not in use. A spring-loaded access cover flips open for insertion of the vacuum hose. When the cover is closed, a gasket seals the wall inlet valve. This wall inlet valve is also available in white (VML195).
A 3-function service indicator is located behind the access cover. The indicator shows the AVP Series central vacuum power unit’s status at the wall inlet valve location. The indicator lights green when the power unit is on, or red to indicate the vacuum’s motor needs servicing promptly. When the indicator flashes either color, replace the vacuum’s bag.
Two terminals on the rear of the wall inlet valve connect to the central vacuum’s low-voltage control wire. When a central vacuum hose is inserted into the wall inlet valve, two sensing pins in the valve connect to the trigger ring on the hose end. Some hoses have a solid trigger ring that electrically connects the valve’s sensing pins whenever the hose is inserted into the valve, which starts the vacuum. Other hoses have a split trigger ring that’s connected to a low-voltage control switch in the hose’s handle, allowing the operator to control the vacuum unit’s power.
The VML195A Wall Inlet Valve attaches to Models VM149-10 and VM241-15 Wall Inlet Valve Brackets.
