I would trust what Ray says, and expect any non-latching valve designed for up to 24V to work on any acceptable power supply, so you can use your 24VDC valves.

It looks like 7.5V input is the minimum supported by all specifications, but 5V appears to work. There is an internal boost converter to provide the voltage needed to operate the valve, and then a lower voltage is sufficient to keep it going.
