Abstract

Directional hydraulic valves are one of the basic and very important components of a hydraulic
system as they control the direction and quantity of the flow of hydraulic fluid. In order to compare the
performance of valves from different manufacturers, or in order to evaluate performance of the valve
during its lifetime, a special test bed should be developed.
The paper presents the development of fully automated test bed for measuring static characteristics of
directional hydraulic vales according to ISO 10770-1. The test bed consists of hydraulic system equipped
with modern sensors and is controlled by a soft PLC. The test procedure is fully automatic and the test
results are displayed real-time.
