SPCL16-40 Valve
U.S. Patent 7,921,880

SPCL16-40 Valve symbol
A solenoid-operated, 4-port, normally-closed, proportional, poppet-type, screw-in
hydraulic cartridge valve for low-leakage blocking and load-holding applications.

When the SPCL16-40 is energized, the poppet lifts to allow flow from port 4 to
ports 1, 2, and 3. Flow at ports 2 and 3 is typical for load sensing applications
and includes a check valve for isolation.

• Industry-common cavity.
• Continuous-duty rated coils.
• Efficient wet-armature construction.
• Optional waterproof E-Coils rated up to IP69K.
• Reduce manifold space claim.

The EVDR Series controllers are recommended for use with most
HydraForce proportional valves. These newer electronic controllers
are versatile, reliable, and easily configured and customized for a wide
range of applications. For the EVDR Product Selection Guide, see page 3.450.1_pdf
