Proportional spool valves are perfectly suitable for demanding tasks due to the high resolution, large volume flow and low hysteresis. The applications are in the industry as well as in the mobile hydraulics for the smooth control of hydraulic actuators. Some examples: control of the rotor blades of wind generators, forestry and earth moving machines, machine tools and paper production machines, simple position controls, robotics and fan control.
Direct operated proportional spool valve with 4 connections in 5-chamber system. Precise spool fit, low leakage, long service life time. The volume flow adjustment takes place by a Wandfluh proportional solenoid. Proportional to the solenoid current, the spool stroke, the spool opening and the valve volume flow increase. For the control, Wandfluh proportional amplifiers are available.
