Proportional Pneumatic Control Valve

This pneumatic control valve was designed to meter inlet and outlet pressure to proportionally control an actuator.

A customer was looking to control the volume of air passing through a secondary actuation device in an automotive application. TLX worked with the customer to develop a pneumatic control valve that metered the inlet and outlet pressure to proportionally control an actuator used in EGR and turbocharger wastegate control.

Features and Benefits

  • Pulse width modulated, proportional flow control
  • Compact fully encapsulated design
  • Can be optimized for specific pressure/vacuum ranges to optimize controllability
  • Can be optimized to configure to customer's electronic drivers

Increased Performance

Precise control with high accuracy through tighter tolerances. Reducing friction and inefficiencies provides extremely low hysteresis.

Lighter Weight

Multiple variables in the design and manufacturing process are optimized to reduce overall weight and size of the solenoid or valve.

Minimized Footprint

Custom solenoids can be designed to utilize the best control scheme for your application, resulting in a minimized footprint.

Limited Power Consumption

Latching technology in solenoid and valve design minimizes overall power consumption.

Extreme Environments

Can be designed to meet extreme environments that include moisture, dirt/dust, vibration and/or extreme temperature requirements.

Built-in Safety

Failsafe modes are designed into solenoids and valves utilizing integrated electronic controls.
