  3. both hydraulic and pneumatic circuits.

2. Proportional and servo directional control valves have___________flow response than conventional directional control valves.

  1. slower
  2. the same
  3. faster

3. A hydrostat module under a proportional control valve:

  1. produces a consistent pressure at its outlet.
  2. produces a consistent flow at its outlet.
  3. sets maximum pilot pressure.

4. An LVDT on a proportional directional control valve tells the electronic control:

  1. how much flow is passing through the valve.
  2. what the pressure is at its outlet.
  3. in what position the spool is.

  1. sometimes
  2. never
  3. always

8. Infinitely variable directional control valves should be mounted as close as possible to the actuator.

  1. True
  2. False

9. Always size infinitely variable directional control valves:

  1. with a high pressure drop.
  2. with a low pressure drop.
  3. it really does not matter what the pressure drop is.

10. A servovalve circuit for cylinder positioning uses a/an:
