The Model VMVPA High-voltage Wall Inlet Valve (Almond) provides a connection point for a central vacuum hose, controls the central vacuum power, supplies power to electric-driven carpet brushes, 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 (VMVP).
To supply high-voltage power to an electric-powered carpet brush, a socket built into the wall valve connects to two high-voltage pins on the Model V610PS Deluxe SuperSystem Central Vacuum Hose.
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.
Use the Model VM612 High-voltage Wall Inlet Rough-in Kit for mounting and wiring the VMVP and VMVPA Wall Inlet Valves.
