(Media-Newswire.com) - Kaarst, February 2014 - Parker Hannifin the global leader in motion and control technologies, has extended its range of pilot proportional directional control valves with integrated digital electronics with the new D*1FC series. This facilitates high-precision and also economic control in many demanding applications.
Parker's new D*1FC proportional directional control valve is available in four nominal sizes ( NG10, NG16, NG25, and NG32 ). It allows volume flow of up to 1,000 liters per minute at a differential pressure of 5 bar per control edge. It thereby offers very good repeatability and high load stiffness and stability. Thanks to progressive flow rate characteristics, it is highly suitable for demanding open loop applications.
The D*1FC series has an efficient and robust mechanical design. The pilot valve is based on the tried and tested Parker D1FB with spool/sleeve design and guarantees high-precision pilot control. Centre position monitoring and energy saving designs with A-regeneration are available. The new D*1FC is also available as a hybrid version that can switch between regenerative mode and standard mode at any time. Thanks to the new integrated digital valve electronics it is equipped with a modern, high-definition LVDT that considerably improves the position accuracy.
The digital electronics open up new possibilities when adapting to individual applications. So, if changes to the basic factory settings are required, parameters can be accessed easily with the support of the free Parker ProPxD software. For example, ramps can be programmed as desired where necessary. Also, with the help of the clear user interface, values can be set, stored, and transferred to other valves.
