What Is A Central Vacuum Low Voltage Hose?

wall inletA low-voltage central vacuum hose is a hose that consists of a thin series of low-voltage wiring allowing total control of the central vacuum. Once the end of the hose is inserted into the wall inlet, a metal band completes the circuit for a low voltage connection and allows you to turn the power unit on or off from the hose handle switch.

What Are Some Features Of A Low Voltage Hoses?

Low-voltage central vacuum hoses are equipped with a two-position rocker switch, conveniently located at the handle of the hose, so you can manually turn your central vacuum system on or off via the switch on the handle. Normally designed with a 360° swivel allowing maximum performance, eliminating wrist strain and fatigue, stops kinking and increases hose life. With these low voltage central vacuum hoses, you can increase suction for maximum cleaning power, or decrease the suction for the most delicate of fabrics.

Electric central vacuum hoses were developed with a series of both low-voltage and high-voltage wires integrated throughout the hose. The low-voltage wire is to conduct a signal from the hose to the central vacuum system, turning the central vacuum on or off.
