Most often, proportional flow valves or flow servovalves are used for position control of pneumatic drives. In case of this type of valves, flow characteristic of the valve represents a dependence of flow rate upon analogue control signal (voltage or current). The paper presents experimental studies of two high-speed pneumatic 3/2 directional valves (3-way 2-position) in order to determine the flow characteristics and flow parameters. One has analysed the option to use the directional valves to control the flow rate of compressed air using frequency-based signals.
