This micro switch fitted control valve is used mostly with DC powerpacks, ie. Tail ramp loader trailers. If you wish to use a lever control instead of a pedant controller, you need a signal to turn your powerpack on & off. Using a basic on / off switch is one way, however DC powerpacks use a lot of amperage when running, as well as causeing a lot of heat, so operator failure to turn off the powerpack isolator can cause battery & powerpack failures. This control valve is the correct item to use. When you pull/push the lever, it closes a circuit causing the power pack to start stop automatically. It comes with the Male plug side ready to be wired up as per photo below. Basically, the two micro switch wires complete the starter solenoid circuit when the lever is engaged.
Double acting, ie will power your rams both up & down
Single acting; Will only power rams in up direction (only one hose to rams)
These valves are regularly used in hydraulic circuits to divert the flow of high pressure oil and are typically used to control the speed and movement of hydraulic cylinders or motors.
