Sun39s smallest digital logic valve targets mobile apps

Sun's smallest digital logic valve targets mobile apps.

New Line of Solenoid Valves Outperforms Previous Models

With an eye for directional control, pressure control, and flow control in space-saving mobile applications, Sun Hydraulics released its first generation of solenoid-operated digital logic valves in the DLV family. The DLVB two-way directional spool valves offer a response time of 10 ms, quickly transitioning between on and off states with minimal leakage. This is twice as fast as Sun's DAAA solenoid-operated directional spool valves, and four times faster than the DAAL.

The DLVB digital logic valve has a pressure rating of 5000 psi at 0.25 gpm. It comes in a small package measuring 2.2-in. high and weighing a mere 2 oz. Equipped with a micro-solenoid and top-mounted M12 connector, it can be used to drive down the size of assemblies. 

Sun also highlights the new product's low power rating. Optimized magnetics and use of a micro-solenoid means the DLV coil draws only 2 W hold (typical) and 15 W peak (typical) —up to a 90% power savings over the standard DAAL with a 22-W coil.  That means the DLV offers higher performance with a lower current draw and lower heat generation.”

The product launch also includes four versions with 12- or 24-Vdc coils in normally-open or normally-closed configurations. More product specifications and related information can be found on the DLVB product page, and in the parameter chart below.
