Industrial valve data available

Back to Mike'e Electric Stuff

I recently picked up a load of data on industrial valves, as listed below. If anyone wants data on a specific device, please email me & I'll put it online. Note - I don't have data on the RCA 4879 photomultiplier, which seems to be the most popular request!
