Sun Hydraulics Introduces New Compact, BluetoothConfigurable XMD Electro-Hydraulic Drivers For Mobile and Industrial Applications

Sarasota, Florida (October 30, 2017) – Sun Hydraulics Corporation today announced the
availability of 16 completely new solenoid-operated cartridge valves and three new coils
for the mobile and industrial hydraulics marketplace.
These newly designed valves – including on/off and proportional models – are the first
phase of products introduced in the Sun FLeX™ Series Solenoid Valves. Coil options for the
family include interchangeable low-power, high-power and hazardous location (explosionproof)
versions for expanded configuration flexibility.
Designed to outperform comparable valves on the market, the FLeX Series solenoid valves
offer consistently better pressure drop in a virtually leak-proof poppet-style valve that is
designed and tested to exceed 10-million-cycle operations. All the valves and coils in the
FLeX Series are zinc-nickel coated to offer 1,000-hour salt fog protection, so they’re suitable
for a wide range of demanding applications. They incorporate the unique Sun floatingstyle
construction to minimize the possibility of internal parts binding due to excessive
torque and/or machining variations. And with their competitive pricing, the Sun FLeX
products deliver excellent value for the money.
This expanding family of performance-driven solenoid valves complement Sun’s existing
line of electro-hydraulic valves and their industry-leading line of load-holding, pressurecontrol,
flow-control, directional, logic and multi-function mechanical-operated valves. As
with all Sun’s valves, the new FLeX Series products will be available in Sun’s QuickDesign
online integrated package design program, allowing users to create and order custom
packages incorporating these new products.
