Proportional technology: precise control of pressure and flow

January 2014, posted in News

The ever-increasing demand for high quality, precision, productivity, ease of handling,user friendliness, service etc. calls for high standards from operating and manufacturing equipment and machines.

High standards can only be achieved if physical variables(e.g. temperature, pressure, force, velocity, torque etc.) are precisely adjusted to the respective operating conditions, i.e. a continuous adjustment of these variables is the important factor.

In this kind of control, generally called proportional technology, solenoid valves with control solenoids (pneumatics, hydraulics, fluid technology) play a significant role.

Proportional valves allow a fluid to vary in proportion to an electronic input value. The combination of these valves with control electronics improves their level of precision and expands their range of applications.
