Logic Valves

By pdamon15 August 2016

Sun Hydraulics Corp. has launched what it calls the industry’s smallest high-speed, reduced-power logic valves.

The company said the valves have 10 millisecond typical response times in an small package with few moving parts. The new solenoid-operated Digital Logic Valve (DLV) paves the way for smaller, highly reliable solutions in demanding mobile applications where size, weight, speed, and power matter and in industrial applications where a fast valve can help reduce machine cycle times, the company said.

The first product introduced in the DLV family, the DLVB, is a two-way,  two-position, solenoid-operated directional spool valve rated up to 5000 psi at 0.25 gpm and weighs 2 oz. and measuring 2.2 in. high. Because it connects to an industry-standard controller, it is a small solution looking to deliver big results in existing applications. Its small, lightweight, low-power characteristics make it ideal for mobile applications while its incredibly fast response times reduce machine cycle times in industrial applications, the company said.
