Smart Valves: Harken First to Integrate a Programmable Valve Controller

11/1/2011

Smart-Valve-lr.jpegHarken is the first to integrate a programmable valve controller into its hydraulic winches for optimal and safe pull forces in each gear. The patented Harken Smart Valve detects the drum speed of a hydraulic winch from a signal sent by the Harken Speed Sensor located inside the winch. Then the Smart Valve automatically adjusts the hydraulic pressure for optimal line speed and pull force in each gear. This all-in-one package saves the expense of additional valve banks and programming a separate PLC.
