  • Can be used in all climate zones, including those as warm as 40 C (104 F) and as cold as -40 C (-40 F)
  • Operated by brushless electric stepper motor with integrated electronics, which in turn is controlled via CANbus
  • Targeted at applications in agricultural and municipal technology where machines are designed for flow rate of 120 l/min (31.7 gpm) and operating pressure of 250 bar (3,625.94 psi)
  • Features complete separation of electromechanical operation and hydraulic functions, together with intelligent actuator
  • Users can take advantage of exact control to match valve block to individual requirements
  • Pilot pressure not required, ensuring no affects from external influences such as pressure- and temperature-fluctuations, viscosity or contamination
  • No tendency to oscillate
  • Offers stable functions for all linear and rotating actuators
  • Intelligent actuator ensures reproducible positioning of control spool, without hysteresis and sensors
  • Neutral position is determined at every start
  • Mechanical play is detected and compensated for, so control accuracy is maintained at optimum level throughout entire life cycle
  • Moves directly to precisely defined position
  • CAN actuator eliminates previously typical valve overshoot
  • Required flow rates can be set more precisely, and opening points can be approached with linear resolution of 7 µm
  • Capable of reaching high travel speeds (80 mm/s at 12V or 100 mm/s at 24V)
  • Optimized acceleration ramps help achieve short step-response times (from 0-7 mm in 110 ms, for example)
  • Provides ease of operation by enabling synchronous operation of up to six actuators in the same mode
  • Up to 10 valve sections can be combined in one valve block, and all valves are equipped as standard with four operating positions (including a float position)
  • Held in position without leakage
  • Arrangement of valve sections on either side of central inlet section reduces internal pressure losses to a minimum and simplifies both initial installation and extension at a later date
  • Users can select valve sections complete with upstream or downstream compensators or assemble them in valve block
  • Additional functions can be included such as anti-shock and make-up valves, as well as a boost function with which a higher flow rate of up to 170 l/min (44.9 gpm) is briefly available
  • Allows easy switch over from flow control to pressure control

Single-Shaft Bearing Simulation Software

SKF SimPro Quick single-shaft bearing simulation software was developed to quickly evaluate the design of bearing arrangements and their field performance based on relevant application requirements and conditions.

  • Provides designers with more SKF engineering knowledge and autonomy to accelerate their design process and optimize selection of bearings
  • Features simple and easy user interface
  • Enables customers to select bearings directly from SKF’s new Rolling Bearings Catalogue 17000, ensuring the latest updates are taken into account
  • Gives customers numerous options for designing an optimal bearing arrangement, everything from two bearings on a shaft to as many bearings as required
  • Building a complete model requires only a few steps
  • After users work through the initial steps and complete a model, an option is provided to run a single data set analysis (single analysis) or to run several conditions (load cycle analysis) based on the defined operating boundaries
  • Output of the analysis includes several data tables and visuals that enable users to create preferred template set-up for a report
  • Typical tables show, e.g., bearing loads, operating internal clearances, friction, misalignment, deflection and SKF rating life as well as a modified rating life according ISO/TS 16281:2008
  • Defines conditions where bearings may experience lower service life compared with calculated fatigue life
  • Excessive misalignment, insufficient loading, overloading and an excessive running speed are warnings that are provided if operating conditions are violating any recommended conditions
  • Other tables in the output provide important details about relubrication intervals, operating clearance, bearing defect frequencies and gear forces
  • Visual plots and animations add to the level of result details
  • Three-dimensional animation is included to examine roller pressure distribution in the bearing and boundary conditions’ impact on shaft and bearing movement
