Caractéristiques techniques [ + ]

This valve is a normally closed, electro-proportional, bypass/restrictive, priority flow control valve. The valve takes an input flow at port 1 and uses it to satisfy the priority flow at port 3. If the input flow exceeds the priority requirement, the excess is bypassed out port 2.
The valve pressure compensates the priority flow for precise flow regulation for applications where there may be wide pressure fluctuations. Port 2 may also be completely blocked so that the valve can be used as a 2-way, electro-proportional pressure compensated flow control from 1 to 3.

  • The valve's patent-pending design uses a pull-type solenoid that allows the main throttle spool to be less sensitive to flow forces, resulting in greater efficiencies, with more flow control using less power.
  • FLeX Series proportional valves are fully compatible with the XMD Expandable Mobile Drivers from Sun.
  • Designed and tested to 10 million on-off operational cycles.
  • Exceeds new NFPA test standard T2.6.1 R2014 for fatigue and burst pressure ratings.
  • Designed using CFD fluid simulation for optimized geometries.
  • All configurations of this valve include zinc-nickel plating as standard for 1000-hour salt fog protection.
  • This valve can be used with both the 740 Series high-power coils and 747 Series hazardous location coils.
  • A wide variety of coil termination and voltage options are available, with and without surge protection. See the CONFIGURATION section.
  • Coil connector options offer ratings up to IP69K. See individual coil product pages for details.
  • Both, priority and bypass flow, are usable up to the system operating pressure.
  • For optimum performance, an amplifier with current feedback and adjustable dither (80 - 250 Hz) should be used.
  • Bypass flow is not available until priority flow requirements are satisfied.
  • Pressure at the bypass port (port 2) may exceed pressure at the priority port (port 3).
  • In applications where the priority flow will be blocked completely, bypass pressure drop will increase over time unless a leak path is provided for the priority flow.
  • Priority flow remains relatively constant regardless of variation in input flow.
  • The minimum bleed at port 3 must meet or exceed the published leakage numbers.
  • Cette valve intègre le concept Sun de la cartouche à visser "flottante" qui permet de minimiser les contraintes internes dues à un couple de serrage excessif de la cartouche et/ou à des écarts d’usinage des cavités ou des cartouches.

All flow is blocked, hence the term priority. The priority flow has to be satisfied.

The valve acts as a 2 port restrictive flow control.

The spring force in our flow controls equates to about 100 psi (7 bar). This is high enough to give the valves acceptable capacity and not too high for proper circuit operation. 100 psi (7 bar) is the spring force; at the upper end of the flow control's range, the drop through the valve will be as high as 250 psi (17 bar) before it starts modulating.

In a meter-in flow control circuit if the pump is set at 3000 psi and the load is 2000 psi the drop through the flow control is 1000 psi. In a meter-out circuit with the load at 2000 psi the drop through the flow control is 2000 psi.

We claim +/- 10%. We set to +/- 5% in production testing to allow for differences in customers' conditions. If you want accuracy, stay in the bottom 2/3rds of the range. Our 12 gpm (45 L/min.) flow controls are quite flat at 9 gpm (34 L/min.) and dead flat below 6 gpm (23 L/min.), until you get to the bottom of the range. Below about .25 gpm (1 L/min.), spool leakage and orifice conditions start to limit accuracy.

I am afraid not. Unless you are overflowing your current valve and correctly size ours, you are not likely to notice any improvement. Priority flow controls are not efficient devices. They are an easy way to get more than 1 source of oil from 1 pump but they can generate a lot of heat. Try to size your actuators so the pressures are similar on both the priority and the bypass circuits. If you can't do that, try to have the lower flow leg be the lower pressure. The pump pressure is determined by whichever leg is higher and if there is flow that is taking a pressure drop that is not doing work it is creating heat.

Yes. All FLeX phase 1 valves are available in the SmartConnect schematic tool, and are also available for submittal to QuickDesign.

Only external seals are serviceable.  Sun offers replacement seal kits for all cartridge models. The applicable kit part number can be found in the product page's Technical Data table or by using our Cartridge Seal Kit search function located under Accessories. Please note: Converting the external seals from one material to another does not ensure fluid compatibility with that material due to the existence of internal seals within the cartridge.
Yes. All FLeX valves utilize the Sun floating nose design.
Nominal flow capacity is based on performance limits. Maximum flow capacity is based on pressure drop. When selecting any direct-acting solenoid valve, first check the performance limits plot, then check if pressure drop is acceptable.
Yes. The 747 series explosion proof coils can be used on any FLeX proportional valve.
No. This cartridge only controls flow in the 2 to 1 flow direction. From 1 to 2, the valve is always fully open.
Notes [ + ]
  • Il est nécessaire de vérifier l'encombrement des cartouches lorsque vous sélectionnez un bloc foré. Différents types de valves, de dispositifs de contrôle, et de bobines nécessitent des encombrements disponibles différents.
  • Pour permettre l'installation ou le retrait de la bobine il est nécessaire de prévoir une hauteur libre dans le prolongement du tube magnétique d'au moins 50,8 mm (2.00 in).
