2-Position Valves, Example 4WEH 22C7X/6... In this model, the main spool (2) is normally hydraulically offset by a 2-position pilot valve (4). The end cap chambers (6) are supplied without springs (3). The pilot valve may be a 2-position, single solenoid (spool type "D"); 2-position, double solenoid (spool type "D/O"); or double solenoid with detent (spool type "D/OF"). Please refer to data sheet RA 23 178 for additional information on the pilot valve. A spring offset, 2-position main spool (not shown) is also available. This option assures the position of the main spool (2) during start-up and is particularly intended to be used with externally piloted systems, where the main pumps are started before the pilot oil supply system. Directional Controls Model 4WH... Directional control valves Model 4WH... are identical to Model 4WEH... except that the solenoid operated pilot valve (4) is replaced by a cover plate (10). The cover plate connects pilot port "X" to chamber (6) on "A" port side and pilot port "Y" to chamber "6" on the "B" port side. Pilot pressure on port "X" provides shifted position "a", while pilot pressure on port "Y" provides shifted position "b". During system design, please consider the following: To achieve center position, the spring centered version requires venting both end cap chambers (6). The pressure centered version requires pressurization of both end cap chambers (6); and two-position hydraulically offset versions, spool (2) position can only be assured by maintaining a pilot pressure on either "X" or port "Y".

Directional valves Model 4WEH... are solenoid pilot operated spool type valves. In the standard version, 3-position spools are spring centered, while 2-position spools are hydraulically offset. A spring offset two-position, and hydraulically centered threeposition, option is also available for most sizes. Directional control valves control the start, stop and direction of fluid flow. 3-Position Valves,Example 4WEH 22 E-7X/6... In spring centered versions, the pilot valve vents both chambers (6) to tank in center position. This allows return springs (3) to center spool (2) with respect to housing (1). Pilot valve (4) is supplied via passage (7), either internally from main port "P" or externally through pilot port "X". When a solenoid is energized, one of the two end caps (6) is pressurized, while the other is drained to tank. Main spool (2) moves to a shifted position, (flow pattern "P" to "A" and "B" to "T" or "P" to "B" and "A" to "T"), depending on which solenoid (5) is energized. Please refer to symbols on page 6, 7, and 8 for exact flow patterns/solenoid relationships. Pilot valve (4) can be internally drained through main port "T" or externally drained through pilot port "Y". Manual overrides are provided to operate the valve without electrically energizing the solenoid. For three-position valves (except sizes 10 and 22), a hydraulic centered option is available (not shown). In this model, hydraulic centering requires both end cap chambers (6) be pressurized in the non-energized condition. An "L" drain port (not shown) is provided through the main valve interface.

4/3-way directional valve with pressure centring of the main control spool, type 4WEHH The main control spool (2) in the main valve is held in the neutral position by pressurisation of the two front faces. A centring sleeve (12) is supported in the housing and holds the spool in position. By removing the pressure from one of the spool ends, the main control spool (2) is moved to the shifted position. The unloaded spool area displaces the returning pilot oil via the pilot valve into the Y channel (external).

4WEH All Rexroth solenoid pilot operated directional valves are field convertable from external to internal pilot or drain. This requires removing or replacing internal plugs as shown in sectional views on this page. For plug location within the sectional views, please refer to the appropriate installation drawing. Since the method of piloting is designated by model code, nameplates should be corrected when conversions are made. 4WEH/ (no designation = external pilot and external drain) This model is externally piloted via port "X" and externally drained via port "Y". All internal plugs (10), (11) are installed. 4WEH/...E (E = internal pilot and external drain) Pilot fluid is supplied internally from "P", while externally drained through port "Y". Port "X" in the subplate must be plugged. To convert valve Model 4WEH 16 ..., the port "X" side end cap must be removed. Spool (see section c-c) with O-ring seal is removed and rotated around the vertical axis. The valve is re-assembled by reinstalling the spool and replacing the end cap. Torque on bolts t = 27 lb-ft (37 Nm). 4WEH/...T (T = external pilot and internal drain) This model is externally piloted through port "X" and internally drained to port "T". Port "Y" in the subplate must be plugged. 4WEH/...ET (ET = internal pilot and internal drain) On this model, pilot fluid supply is internal from port "P" and the drain is internal through port "T". Both ports "X" and "Y" in the subplate are plugged. Note: See RA 45 054 (size 10), RA 45 056 (size 16), RA 45 058 (size 22 and 25), and RA 45 060 (size 32) for subplate availability and port sizes. Item (1) and (2) M6 plug, requires a 3 mm allen wrench Pilot orifice insert (option B08, B10, B12, B15) To limit maximum flow, orifice inserts are optionally available. Primarily, the orifice insert is intended to prevent flow rates in excess of the maximum performance data of the pilot valve (see page 9). For this purpose the insert is installed in the "P" port however, will fit any of the ports, allowing for design flexibility. Pilot valve, model with orifice insert, B10, B12, ... Main valve

Pilot fluid supply


Pilot choke adjustment (option S or S2) The shifting time of the main valve (1) can be adjusted by using a sandwich mounted throttle valve with reverse free flow check (12), model Z2FS 6 (data sheet RA 27 506). Turning adjustment (13) clockwise will increase the shifting time. Conversion from option "S" meter-in (13) to option "S2" meter-out (14) requires removal of the pilot valve (4). The O-ring plate (15) remains with the main valve housing (1), while the throttle valve is rotated around the longitudinal axis. Pilot valve (4) is then re-installed. Tightening torque for bolts (16) is 6.5 lb-ft (8.9 Nm). Pilot pressure reducing valve (option "D3") To achieve smoother shifts with internally piloted valves, reduce internal pilot pressure to minimum values, and optimize the pilot choke, meter-out throttle (S2). Option "D3", model ZDR 6 DP2-5x/ 75YM sandwich mounted reducing valve (see data sheet RA 26 569) can be adjusted from approximately 30 PSI (2 bar) to 1000 PSI (75 bar). A pressure setting of 200 PSI (14 bar) to 400 PSI (28 bar) is usually adequate. Fixed ratio pilot pressure reducing valve (option "D1") Either the pilot pressure reducing valve option "D3" or fixed ratio pilot pressure reducing valve (17) must be used if pilot pressure will exceed 3625 PSI (250 bar). The fixed ratio reducing valve (option "D1") reduces the pilot pressure to the pilot valve at a fixed ratio of 1:0.66. For example, at 5000 PSI (350 bar) port "P" pressure the pilot pressure would be reduced to: 5000 PSI (350 bar) x 0.66 = 3300 PSI (228 bar). Please note: The minimum pilot pressures stated on page 9, must be increased by 1.515 when the fixed ratio pilot pressure valve is applied. Port "P" pilot pressure insert (option P 4.5 and P 7) (not available for size 10, order sandwich plate Model: Z1S 10 P3-3X S01) For internally piloted vaves with open or tandem center spools (types C, F, G, H, P, T, V, Z, S), minimum pilot pressure requirements can be achieved by using a pilot pressure insert (18) in port "P" of the main valve. This design permits the main valve to be internally piloted and internally drained. The pressure drop of the pilot pressure insert (see graph below) is in addition to the presure drop of the main valve (see performance curves). The cracking pressure of a "P 4.5" pilot pressure insert is approximately 65 PSI (4.5 bar). If applying a pressure reducing valve, option D1, or D3, cracking pressure should be 100 PSI (7 bar). Use the "P7" pilot pressure insert.

In a 3-position valve, hydraulic centering is only possible if ppilot 2 x ptank + ppilot min Spool S only available with size 16 valve Internally piloted valves with spool types C, F, G, H, P, T, V, Z will only shift if the flow from P to T in the center position (3-position valves) or during spool crossover (2-position valves) is large enough that the pressure drop from P to T reaches a minimum of 95 PSI (6.5 bar), which is required to shift the pilot valve.

For spools C, F, G, H, P, T, V, Z, pilot pressure insert or considerably high flows) External pilot for closed center valves is greater than tandem center valves, required due to pressure and flow influences during shift. For pilot valves with removeable solenoids, 6E For pilot valves with wet pin solenoids, 6A

To obtain the maximum flow values shown, full filtration of 25 m is recommended. The flow forces acting within the valve also influence performance. In 4-way valves, the data provided is for applications with 2 directions of flow (flow from P to A and an equal, simultaneous return flow from B to T) (see left). If only one direction of flow is required, for example, when a 4-way valve has one port plugged, or unbalanced flows from large rod cylinders, permissible flow in critical cases can be considerably lower. Performance limits measured with solenoids at operating temperature, 10% undervoltage and without tank port pressure.
