An important component in the transfer of power from the processor to

the linear or rotary actuator is the directional control valve (DCV). The

selection of the size and type of valve determines many of the operating

characteristics of the actuator. The development in directional control

valves is towards :

Sub-base and manifold mounting with common supply and exhaust

Directional control valves are optimised with respect to dead volume,

actuating force and working loads. This results in fast switching of

the valve.

The housing interior is specially designed to achieve a high flow rate.

Multiple function valves where characteristics are changed via wafer

and seal variations

Multiple valves in single unit construction

Mounting of the DCV on the cylinder

The manifold mounted valves utilise a common supply port and exhaust

ports. The exhausts can be tubed away separately or locally silenced as

required. The compact and rigid mounting is suitable for a control cabi-

net construction.
