The new valves integrate into custom manifold blocks or circuits that combine multiple cartridge valves in a common block. The valves are suited for rugged off-highway, windpower, and steel-mill environments, and can replace other manual valves including pull/push-to-shift, threeposition, four-way, tandem center, mobile sectional, and manually operated industrial models. They come in open and closed-center configurations, and a motor-spool, open-center version lets a motor freewheel when the valve is centered. Motor spools can also be used for directional control of cylinders.
