5/2 way directional valve in a diagram

double solenoid operated 5 2 way valve sample diagram

Example of using a 5/2 way directional valve as shown in a diagram

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.

When the push button is permanently pressed. The logic will flow continuously extending and retracting the cylinder until the start button is released.
