Directional control valves are one of the core elements in a hydraulic circuit. They help directing the fluid to different components in the system.
Directional control valves perform only three functions:
- Stop fluid flow
- Allow fluid flow
- Change direction of fluid flow
There is a part called «spool» inside control valve which can be operated mechanically or electrically. The movement of the spool lets oil flow or blocks the oil flow in other words it controls the movement of fluid. Hidros provide monoblock directional control valves with different capacities and spool control options such as hydraulic, pneumatic or with cables/joysticks.
DVS valves are 6 ways, 2 positions (6/2) solenoid operated valves. They are used for selective connection of different cylinders/hydraulic motors in the application. When valve is de-energised, oil directs from D & C ports to first actuator. When valve coil is energised, oil directs from A & B ports to second actuator.
