You have a tractor, forklift, or other machine where the wheels can be turned only with a hydraulic steering wheel, but you would like extra maneuverability at low speeds? We can provide a solution for your machine, it’s electronic steering. All that you need are just a few components. For first, a 1-section electrically controlled proportional control valve must be connected to the same hydraulic circuit with hydraulic power steering unit. Additionally, you need a PWM controller and 1D micro joystick for solenoids control. The latter components can also be replaced with 1 joystick having a built-in amplifier for the solenoids control. Just a bit of hydraulic hose connecting, then find a place for the joystick on the seat armrest or dashboard and electronic steering can begin. When ordering a hydraulic control valve, it is necessary to pay attention to one important detail, whether the hydraulic steering system type is common flow or load sensing. But this is easily explained by the type of Orbitrol (power steering unit), mostly the common flow types have 4 hydraulic connections and the load sensitive type has 1 connection more, in total 5 connections. If the tractor is equipped with electronic steering and if you connect the forestry wagon as well, it’s now a professional forest machine, like a real forwarder.
