Lego pneumatic electric valves?

Hey all. I was just wondering, I want to use the lego pneumatic parts like i would for the fischertechnik ones. And I was wondering if anyone know where i could buy an electric solenoid valve approapriate for the lego pneumatic tumes and pressures. 10-50 psi. or so. OR, if i cant find valves for the lego, where could i get a fischertechnik kit that had EVERYTHING needed including the electronics, motors, sensors, solenoids, tubes, wires, and everything else.

there are plenty of solenoid valves, but all the solenoid valves even close to what you would be doing run off of 12v, (lego = 9) and the connections are usually 1/4 in connections, so you would have to make yourself an adapter. the other problem would be the pressures. the solenoid valves that you can get usually don't work with pressures under 30-10 psi, so once you get down to those pressures, you will get problems.

in short, if you want lego pneumatic solenoid valves, your only choice is to modify existing industrial solenoid valves.
