Three performance levels, a world of possibilities

Our proportional directional valves are available in three performance levels—ultra, high and standard performance—to suit a wide range of application requirements.

Ultra performance
KSD direct-acting and KHD pilot-operated servo performance valves.

  • Single solenoid
  • Spring-offset to power off condition
  • Spool position feedback (pilot- and main-stage spool position feedback)
  • Zero lap spool options
  • Suitable for closed-loop pressure and position control applications
  • Requires dedicated control amplifier

High performance
KFD direct-acting single feedback valve.

  • Spool position feedback
  • Suitable for precise speed control and simple closed-loop applications
  • Requires dedicated control amplifier

Standard performance
KDG direct-acting and pilot-operated non-feedback valve.

  • No spool position feedback
  • Low-cost valve suitable for shock reduction and simple speed control applications
  • Simple, low-cost electronic requirements

Enhance your system with proportional valve electronics

Add precision, speed and accuracy to your industrial proportional valve application with Danfoss amplifiers and control cards. These add-ons feature user-friendly front panels with LEDs, so you can easily monitor and adjust card functions. The units provide both voltage and current input signals, with translation to standard, efficient PWM output signals.

Upgrade to onboard electronics
Upgrade to onboard electronics
Valves with onboard electronics offer a number of advantages, including a factory-matched valve and amplifier, which reduces the possibility of selection and installation errors. Installation and setup is faster and easier, with limited user adjustments and reduced electrical cabinet space requirements.
