SV20-S38 (SV20-S38)

Item In Stock

Product Description

A solenoid-operated, normally closed, poppet-type, screw-in hydraulic cartridge valve, designed to operate as a bidirectional load-holding or blocking valve in high flow circuits requiring low internal leakage.

Product Operation

When the SV20-S38 is de-energized, it functions as a check valve, allowing flow from ➀ to ➁ while blocking flow from ➁ to ➀. When energized, the poppet lifts to open the ➁ to ➀ flow path while also allowing flow from ➀ to ➁. Port ➂ is typically connected to the reservoir.
Operation of Manual Override Feature: To override, push button in and twist
counterclockwise 180°. The internal spring will push the button out. In this position, the
valve may be only partially shifted. To assure full override shift, pull the button out to
its fullest extension and hold it in this position. To return to normal valve function, push
button in, twist clockwise 180° and release. Override will be detented in this position.
