FLeX your system and configure your future

Third Quarter 2019 Hydraulic systems & components

The new 3- and 4-way solenoid-operated directional valves in the FLeX product family from Sun Hydraulics provide robust electro-hydraulic control for mobile and industrial applications. When paired with Sun’s portfolio of pressure and flow control valves, these new directionals can help you manage a complete range of functions such as direction, position and power in the most demanding applications.

With these new additions to the FLeX family, it is now possible to create complete FLeX solutions for 210 or 350 bar applications that give 10 million cycle reliability at full rated pressure, 1000 hour salt fog protection and industry leading performance in a market priced solution. The new DMBD (210 bar) and DMBF (350 bar) 3-way directional valves are direct acting and are offered in two spool types. The FLeX Series DMB valves use the new T-150A cavity. Sun standard manifolds are available for the T-150A cavity. The new DNBD (210 bar) and DNBF (350 bar) 4-way, 2-position directional valves are direct acting as well and are offered in six spool types.

Sun has applied 50 years of valve design experience to the FLeX Series concept. We studied the future of fluid power, benchmarked the competition on performance and price and applied what we learned to develop these next-generation valves. With the addition of these new performance-driven directional valves, Sun now offers 28 FLeX Series directional valves, nine proportional valves and four relief valves that deliver the FLeX Advantage. All FLeX valves can use the 747 Series hazardous location coils.
