A pilot controlled servo-valve has four main flow connections, an axially sliding main control piston with four control edges and a front restoring spring that defines a spring-centered middle position of the main control piston. A control sleeve has ring shaped openings for the first, second and third main flow connections and a front opening for the fourth main flow connection. A first front face of the main control piston is axially opposed to the front opening. A pressure compensation surface is formed by the second front face of the main control piston in a spring chamber. The main control piston applies the pressure in the fourth main flow connection on said pressure compensating surface through a pressure relief channel. A traverse bore connects said pressure relief channel to an auxiliary connection chamber connected to the third main flow connection by the forth control edge. This valve may be space-savingly integrated in a hydraulic block and has a clearly defined middle position, as well as a remarkable dynamic performance.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
