Function and configuration
Valves of type Z4WEH are directional spool valves with electrohydraulic actuation. They control the start and stop of a flow.
These directional valves basically consist of the main valve with housing (1), main control spool (2), one or two return springs (3.1 and 3.2), as well as pilot valve (4).
Main control spool (2) in the main valve is held by springs or through pressurization in the zero or initial position. In the initial position, the two spring chambers (6) and (7) are connected pressure less to tank via pilot channel (4). The pilot valve is supplied with pilot oil via pilot line (11). The supply can be provided internally or externally (externally via port X in the sandwich plate).
When the pilot valve is operated, e.g. solenoid "a", the pilot spool (not shown on the drawing) is pushed to the left and spring chamber (7) is consequently pressurized to pilot pressure. Spring chamber (6) remains pressure less.
The pilot pressure acts on the left side of main control spool (2) and pushes it against spring (3.1). In the main valve the ports are connected on the component side and on the plate side depending on the symbol.
When the solenoid is de-energized, the pilot spool returns to its initial position. Spring chamber (7) is unloaded to tank.
The pilot oil is drained internally from spring chamber (7) via pilot valve (4) into channel T (Y).
An optional manual override (5) allows the pilot spool to be moved without energization of the solenoid.
The use of throttle insert (10) is required, if the pilot oil supply in channel P of the pilot valve is to be limited.
Throttle insert (10) is to be installed in channel P of the pilot valve.

The stroke adjustment feature limits the stroke of the main spool. The spool stroke can be reduced by loosening locknut (19) and turning adjustment spindle (20) clockwise. The control chamber must be pressure less during this process.
Stroke 9.5 mm (1 turn = 1.5 mm stroke)
