Mechanical operated hydraulic valve to electrical operated.

Mechanical operated hydraulic valve to electrical operated.

Mechanical operated hydraulic valve to electrical operated.

Dear All,

I have a JCB 524-50 with manual operated valves.
Now I would love to make the last valve eletrically powered.
My question is, does there excists a electric actuator which can take over the manual operation?
Or should I replace the block to do so?
See Image (https://ibb.co/c2jGSZx)

Thanks for the help,
Kind regards,

RE: Mechanical operated hydraulic valve to electrical operated.

Many modular valve blocks have the ability to have sections of them replaced or have additional features added on.

Do you have a schematic?
Do you have a valve part number or a valve stack part number?

Engineering is not the science behind building. It is the science behind not building.

RE: Mechanical operated hydraulic valve to electrical operated.

I have the following number.


At the moment I don't have the schematics. But I'm also searching them.

Thanks in advance,
Kind regards,

I have seen similar questions before.
When the total price for the conversion is revealed people often change their mind; electric controls are not such a good idea anyway and the manual controls work just fine.

Green light on lidar: Developing low cost systems for autonomous vehicles
Lidar has been around for quite some time, but to date, it’s been custom—and expensive. Right now, there isn’t a clear-cut solution that’s suitable for all applications, such as lidar in autonomous vehicles. As they explore options, optical and mechanical engineers are forced to make choices and tradeoffs during the design process. Download Now
