PV42-M30 Valve
U.S. Patent 6,966,329

SYMBOL:
PV42-M30 Valve symbol
DESCRIPTION
A solenoid-operated, electrically-variable, 2-stage, 3-port, normally closed,
pressure-compensated, proportional flow control, spool-type, screw-in hydraulic
cartridge valve. It can be used as a priority-type flow regulator with pressure-compensated,
regulated and bypass flow.

OPERATION
The PV42-M30 will regulate flow out of port 3 regardless of system working pressure
at 3 or at bypass port 2. Two priority flow ranges are provided for better resolution:
Range A for priority flow up to 170 lpm/45 gpm, and Range B for priority flow up to
132 lpm/35 gpm. For either range, the input flow at 1 can be up to 225 lpm/60 gpm.
Note: When used as a bypass flow control in applications where the priority flow port
will be blocked by external valving (dead-headed), bypass pressure drop will increase
unless a small amount of leakage is provided for the priority port. Consult factory.

Manual Override: To Engage: Turn clockwise approximately 3 turns to reach start point.
Continue another approximately 2 more turns to full shift.
To Disengage: Turn counterclockwise approximately 5 turns to positive stop.

FEATURES
• Excellent linearity and hysteresis characteristics.
• Hardened spool and cage for long life.
• Optional coil voltages and terminations.
• Efficient wet-armature construction.
• Manual Override option.

RECOMMENDED ELECTRONIC CONTROLLERS
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.
See the EVDR Product Selection Guide.
