The 2544 Control Head consists of two 3-way directional control valves and an accurate, self-relieving pressure regulating valve. All valves are handle-cam actuated. With the handle in center position, both 3-way valve outputs are vented to atmosphere and the regulating valve output pressure is lowest. Movement of the handle through the first 20º in either direction actuates one of the 3-way valves, delivering full supply pressure to the chosen directional output. Handle output beyond 20º actuates the regulating valve, delivering its output according to handle position. The chosen directional output remains at full supply pressure from 10º to 80º of handle travel.

Weight: 9.1 lbs. (4.1 kg.)

Materials: Die-cast silicon bronze and stainless steel hardware.

Maximum Supply Pressure: 150 PSI (10.34 BAR)

Operating Temperature Range: -40ºC to +90ºC.

Pipe Port Size: 1/8” NPT


• Used primarily for the control of throttles or governors and reverse clutches by a single handle.

• For pneumatic control of two mechanisms, one directional and the other proportional, by a single handle.
