Servo Valve DECV: More precision and lower operating costs for hydraulic control systems |
19 November 2015, (Germany)
The new Voith servo valve DECV (Direct Electronic Copy Valve) is a further development of the Voith copy valve, which has already proven itself in countless hydraulic control systems. It combines the excellent operating characteristics and robustness with innovative valves and the associated electronic control. The single-stage, direct actuation ensures precise control: Through impulse response and accuracy, the DECV servo valve responds to demanding drive tasks. With a step response of only seven milliseconds, the DECV belongs to the class of highly dynamic valves. Thanks to the direct actuation, a hysteresis of considerably less than one percent is reached.
