Technical Features [ + ]

This direct acting, solenoid-operated, 4-way, 3-position spool valve is spring centered to the neutral position. When coil A is energized, the flow is from port 3 (P) to port 2 (B) and from port 4 (A) to port 1 (T). When coil B is energized, the flow is from port 3 to port 4 and from port 2 to port 1.

  • Maximum working pressure at Port 1 is 1000 psi (70 bar). Max working pressure on all other ports is 3600 psi (250 bar).
  • This valve is direct actuated and requires no minimum hydraulic pressure for operation.
  • Coil connector options offer ratings up to IP67. See individual coil product pages for details.
  • The cartridge installation torque of 30 lbf ft (40 Nm) is required for best performance.
  • The valve is available with a manual override option (T control). This hand-actuated lever option is also rated to a maximum of 1000 psi (70 bar) at Port 1 and can be actuated under pressure. Rotating the lever away from the manifold block will connect port 3 to port 4 and port 2 to port 1. Rotating the lever towards the manifold block will connect port 3 to port 2 and port 4 to port 1.
  • The manual override option includes two mounting bolts which fasten the mechanism onto the valve via mounting holes on the manifold. For details on the mounting holes, refer to the product page of any Sun manifold configured with an SC-10-04 cavity (i.e. model code: JPA).
  • This valve utilizes a wet armature design. This means that the working fluid surrounds the armature and is exposed to the heat generated by the coil. This can be a factor if the coil is energized for long periods of time. Some fluids, notably water/glycol mixtures, break down at these temperatures over time and form varnishes that will affect the function of the cartridge.
  • Coils can be mounted on the tube in either direction.

There are exactly 250 Sun drops in a cubic inch or 15 in a cc.

Direct-acting valves are used to prevent over pressure, and pilot-operated valves are used to regulate pressure. If you are unsure, use a direct-acting valve. Sun's direct acting valves are very fast, dirt tolerant, stable, and robust. Sun's pilot-operated valves are moderately fast, they have a low pressure rise vs. flow curve, and they are easy to adjust.

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.
