The fuel shutoff valve is typically mounted in the engine compartment close to the low pressure fuel regulator. The function of the valve is to shutoff fuel at the inlet to the regulator. The valve is powered by an electric solenoid. The valve is normally closed and is available with either 12volt or 24volt solenoids. ‪

Electrical power to the solenoid is controlled by both DDEC and vehicle electrical systems. The DDEC ECM supplies a signal to open the valve when ignition is on and engine speed is above 60 rpm. The valve is closed when ignition is switched off, or when engine speed falls below 60 rpm or when an engine protection shutdown occurs. Vehicle systems typically tie power to the valve with the ignition switch and other safety systems such as fire suppression or methane (gas leakage) detection systems. The solenoid power is supplied through the vehicle wire harness. The gas inlet and outlet are female 1/2inch NPTF connections. The shutoff valve comes with a mounting bracket attached. See Figure 33441 . ‪
