Function of the proportional valve – stroke-controlled solenoid
For proportional valves, stroke-controlled solenoids are mainly used in hydraulics. The position of the armature is regulated by a closed control loop and maintained independently of the counterforce. The prerequisite is that the counterforce is within the permissible operating range of the solenoid.
Stroke-controlled solenoids can be used to directly actuate the pistons of directional control and throttle valves and move them to any desired position. With pressure valves, the spring can be preloaded and thus the pressure can be adjusted electrically.
Hydraulic proportional valve – simple control
Hydraulic proportional valves are controlled by an electronic control unit. Our control modules from WEST-Elektronik are designed so that simple parameterization can be carried out without programming knowledge.
Our control modules can be used to control hydraulic proportional directional control valves, flow control valves and pressure control valves.
