Sun Hydraulics has released FREP, its first solenoid-operated, three-way proportional flow control valve and part of its expanding line of FLeX Series valves.
The new, compact FREP combines an electroproportional adjustable orifice and pressure compensator in one valve and can provide a constant priority flow rate independent of load pressures. It’s well suited for situations with a need to maintain constant actuator speed regardless of the load on the actuator, and it provides excellent variable flow control when using a fixed-displacement pump.
Sun offers a standard assembly for the FREP with the OMP motor interface so it can be mounted easily on an orbital motor, reducing hosing and providing a more compact solution. Six standard OMP-mount manifolds in a range of port sizes are available. The manifolds include a set of deep mounting holes to accommodate direct mounting of the Sun XMD mobile driver to the manifold. The FREP is a compact single valve that features a 30-gpm (120-lpm) rated input with priority flow in three ranges: 0-8 gpm (0-30 lpm), 0-15 gpm (0-60 lpm), and 0-22 gpm (0-88 lpm).
