I am not sure but I suspect not — motorized ball valves usually require electricity to be applied for several seconds to give it time for the motor to move. OSBee only sends impulse voltages that last for a few hundred milliseconds. It works with typical latching valves, and I don’t think it works with motorized ball valves. I am not aware of any motorized ball valve that would work with OSBee.
On the other hand, I believe U.S. solid’s “9-24V AC/DC and 2 Wire Auto Return type” can work with both AC-powered and DC-powered OpenSprinkler (in the DC-powered case, it needs a power adapter that’s 9V or 12V, because the default adapter we include is only 7.5V).
