Drawing below shows a double solenoid operated 5/2 way directional valve connected to a double acting cylinder/ with to proximity switch. the system is in idle condition.
When the start button is pressed momentarily. the cycle begins at logic 2 triggering EXT_B_SV solenoid which extends the cylinder.
As soon as the proximity switch B_OUT is reached. Logic 3 comes in triggering RET_B_SV solenoid to retract the cylinder to its normal position.
