- Directional valves type WE are solenoid-operated directional spool valves and can be used as electromagnetic components. They control the start, stop and direction of a flow.
The directional valves essentially consist of the housing (1), one or two electromagnets (2), the control spool (3) and the return springs (4).
In the de-energized state, the control spool (3) is held in the middle or initial position by the return springs (4) (except version “O”).
When the electromagnet (2) switching in oil is energized, the control spool (3) moves from its rest position to the desired end position. This releases the required flow direction according to the selected symbol.
After switching off the electromagnet (2), the control spool (3) is pushed back to the middle or initial position (except for valve with detent “OF” and valve without spring type “O”).
An auxiliary actuation (5) enables the valve to be switched manually without magnet supply.
The hydraulic system must be properly vented to ensure proper function.
