Walvoil, components for agriculture 4.0


Walvoil, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of integrated offerings of hydraulic products, electronics and complete mechatronic systems based in Reggio Emilia, attends Agritechnica with product innovations that touch all production ranges, addressing the wide spectrum of agricultural applications. These are most significant.

DJW. A joystick for ISOBUS systems and applications for safety up to the d/SIL 2 Performance Level, particularly for telescopic loaders. The completely sealed joystick offers maximum protection against water and dust (IP67/IPx9K), while high-performance hardware allows it to be used in Isobus applications where a modern and efficient user interface is required (colour and high resolution).The DJW, as the manufacturer explains, is suitable for 12V and 24V applications thanks to the power supply range from 8 to 32V, and comes with a large number of inputs to collect all the signals from the handle (roller, buttons, toggle switches), which are then sent via the CANbus network using the SAE J1939, CANopen, CANopenSafety or ISOBUS protocol.

DVS. This is a line of modular distributors based on the Hydrocontrol brand designed for different types of machines ranging from forestry cranes to mini loaders and backhoe loaders, from compactors to forklifts. The DVS models are characterized by fluidity of control, lightness and compactness; the working sections have auxiliary valves and a wide range of interchangeable coils. “The DVS distributors - the manufacturing company specifies with a note - can be configured with integrated proportional electro-hydraulic controls and, on request, also in the LoadSensing version to be combined with variable displacement pumps. They are popular for their performance and energy savings”.

SVM320. This is a new compact hydraulic servo control aimed at the forest machinery market; thanks to its innovative design, it helps manage and adjust the increased flow rates with lower actuation forces than the standard range. It comes with a cast iron structure, which guarantees reliability over time (it maintains its characteristics unchanged during the joystick’s life cycle), resistance to oil contamination, ample possibilities for adapting to customer needs (due to the modular fixing flanges) and for customization.
