Moog: D936 Series Servo-Proportional Valve

Moog D936 Series Servo Proportional ValveMoog Inc. has introduced its new D936 Series Servo-Proportional Valve. The direct-operated, analog valve is driven by a proportional solenoid and equipped with integrated electronics and closed-loop position control of the spool. The valves are suitable for electrohydraulic control of position, speed, pressure and force in open and closed-loop control systems. Customers will benefit from standard features including: a 4/4-way design with a failsafe position, electronics on the solenoid for a reduced envelope size and added vibration resistance, and exact replacement capabilities when switching from other valves on the market.

"While designing the D936 valve, we interviewed customers to delve into their needs and challenges to create a solution that meets both,” said Dr. Marco Wiegandt, Valve Development Manager for Moog. “We included many of the top requested features in this valve which utilizes next-generation electronics for energy efficiency and extended use lifecycles."

With superior resistance to vibration, temperature and contamination, the D936 Series Servo-Proportional Valve is especially suited for plastics machinery, heavy industry, die casting, the wood industry and mobile applications like concrete pumps. The new valve is also ideal for applications requiring a high degree of precision control including marine, metal forming and presses, gas and steam turbines, and test-lab rigs.
