SP08-20A Valve

SP08-20A Valve symbol


A solenoid-operated, 2-way, normally closed, proportional, poppet-type, screw-in hydraulic cartridge valve for low-leakage blocking or load-holding applications.

When de-energized, the SP08-20A acts as a check valve, allowing flow from 1 to 2, while blocking flow from 2 to 1. When energized, the 2 to 1 flow path is opened. Flow is proportional to current applied to the coil. Flow varies with manual override.
Note: If low voltage is expected on the machine, 12 or 24 volt systems will require the use of 10 volt or 20 volt coils respectively. See “SP Valves and Coil Operating Parameters,” page 2.002.1_pdf.

• Continuous-duty rated coil.
• Efficient wet-armature construction.
• Manual override option.
• Optional waterproof E-Coils rated up to IP69K.
• Industry common cavity.
• Compact size.
