1. An automatic wireless electric valve that is designed to be installed on a main fluid pipe and to receive remote wireless open and close commands, comprising:

  • a casing, an electric motor, an internal power source, an inner pipe with an inlet, an outlet and a butterfly, an inner clamp, a rotation shaft, a primary cogwheel that is attached to the electric motor by means of a motor axle, a secondary cogwheel that is attached to the rotation shaft, and an electronic control mechanism;

    wherein the inner clamp includes a first part and a second part;

    wherein the first part of the inner clamp includes a chamber in which the electric motor is incorporated;

    wherein the inner pipe is incorporated into the inner clamp;

    wherein the motor axle is attached to the electric motor so that when the electric motor turns, the motor axle revolves around its longitudinal axis;

    wherein the motor axle is protruded through a hole in the chamber;

    wherein the primary cogwheel is assembled on the motor axle;

    wherein the secondary cogwheel is assembled on the rotation shaft;

    wherein the primary cogwheel is meshed with the secondary cogwheel;

    wherein the rotation shaft is attached to the butterfly and is designed to turn the butterfly so as to close or open the inner pipe;

    wherein the electronic control mechanism includes a receiver and a printed circuit board;

    wherein the electronic control mechanism connects the internal power source to the electric motor and controls activation and deactivation of the electric motor;

    wherein the casing includes an upper opening through which a manual handle is attached to the rotation shaft, two sided openings that enable access to the inlet and the outlet of the inner pipe, and a rear opening that enables access to the internal power source;

    wherein when the electronic control mechanism receives a wireless command to close or open the automatic wireless electric valve, the following operations take place;

    the electronic control mechanism activates the electric motor, which turns the motor axle, the primary cogwheel, the secondary cogwheel, the rotation shaft, and the butterfly whereby closing or opening the inner pipe;

    wherein the electric motor, the internal power source, the inner pipe, the inner clamp, the rotation shaft, the primary cogwheel, the motor axle, the secondary cogwheel and the electronic control mechanism contained inside the casing whereby enabling a user to install the automatic wireless electric valve on the main fluid pipe easily.
