Solenoid valves for space launch vehicles require the strict limitations on the size, weight and current consumption comparing to industrial solenoid valves. The preliminary design of a cryogenic and high pressure solenoid valve for propellant tank pressurization which can ensure the operation of solenoid valve under such strict limitation conditions was preformed. The Copper and Constantan materials in coil design have used to prevent the excessive rise of the current at cryogenic state. The measured current of solenoid valve at cryogenic temperature satisfies a design requirement.
