FEMA is featuring its Direct Drive Proportional Solenoid Valves in June 2018.

Operating at cycle rates of 40 to 300 Hz, low frequency valves (LFV) are used for Transmission, PTO, Brake and SCV controls as well as brake cooling. The solenoid armature in FEMA’s LFVs is directly coupled to the valve spool, with the spool driven by the force from the armature.
