Power management company Eaton recently announced its CMT mobile valve section, a streamlined new section option for the CMA advanced mobile valve.
With the capability to control two bidirectional services from one section, the CMT valve section increases design flexibility and reduces CMA valve bank size, weight, and overall system cost.
Like the existing CMA mobile valve section, the new CMT section is software-configurable and features CAN communication, onboard sensors, digital flow-sharing, and electronic load-sensing to provide precise flow control and high responsiveness. While the CMA section features independent metering, the CMT section uses twin-spool architecture to control two services instead of one, reducing the number of sections needed in a valve bank by as much as 50%.
CMT mobile valve sections are stackable with CMA sections, increasing the design flexibility of the CMA advanced mobile valve. OEMs can optimize the valve for vehicle requirements by specifying sophisticated CMA sections for services that demand superior precision and control and streamlined CMT sections for standard machine functions. Two stackable section options simplify the use of the CMA valve on high-end and midrange machines without parts proliferation, due to shared componentry and procedures.
Featuring onboard electronics and sophisticated software algorithms, the CMA valve optimizes for conditions such as oscillation and vibration to deliver better stability, controllability, and fuel efficiency. Software-driven setup eliminates hardware changeouts and enables performance optimization in minutes instead of months, speeding time to market.
