PV76-30A Valve


PV76-30A Valve symbol
A solenoid-operated, pressure-compensated, spool-type, normally closed proportional
flow control valve.

The PV76-30A can be used as a priority-type flow regulator with pressure-compensated,
regulated and bypass flow. It can also be used as a restrictive type, 2-way, pressure
compensated flow regulator when bypass line (port 2) is blocked. The regulated flow is
proportional to electric current applied to the solenoid.
Note: When used as a bypass flow control in applications where the priority flow port will be
blocked by external valving, bypass pressure drop will increase unless a small amount of leakage
is provided for the priority port.
Manual Override: To Engage: Turn clockwise approximately 1 turn to reach start point.
Continue another approximately 5 turns to full shift.
To Disengage: Turn counterclockwise approximately 6 turns until positive stop is found.

• Excellent linearity and hysteresis characteristics.
• Hardened spool and cage for long life.
• Optional coil voltages and terminations.
• Efficient wet-armature construction.
• Manual Override option.

Operating Pressure: Port 1: 240 bar (3500 psi); Ports 2 and 3: 207 bar (3000 psi)

   7.4 to 420 cSt (50 to 2000 sus); See Temperature and Oil Viscosity, page 9.060.1
Installation:nstall D-series coils with two O-rings above and below the coil. Install
   E-series coils with only one O-ring above the coil. See Cartridge Installation, page 9.020.1
   for cartridge, coil and coil retainer installation. To assure proper function, coil retainer must
   be installed. Manual override options M and G require Coil Nut Kits. See part numbers below.

The EVDR Series controllers are recommended for use with most HydraForce
proportional valves. These newer electronic controllers are versatile, reliable,
and easily configured and customized for a wide range of applications.
See the EVDR Product Selection Guide.
