Operating principle

Our valves are used for proportional control of compression and rebound in active damper systems, they create the connection between safe driving, comfort and dynamics.

Depending on damper system the hydraulic valves from Kendrion adjust the damping force continuously.

The valve controls the extension phase – i.e. the force that ensues when the wheel rebounds – and the other the compression phase. In a few milliseconds the damping force is adjusted individually and the ride comfort increased by stabilizing the body.

Depending on the requirements, the following applications have a common operating voltage of 12 V to 24 V and are designed for a temperature range of -55 °C to 120 °C.
