Symbols for Direction Controlled Valves:

Two-way valves:

Two way, two position valves

Normally closed valves, P is not connected A normally, connected only when the valve is actuated

Normally open opsition, P is connected A. When the valve is not actuated the way is open.

Three-way valve:

Three ports, two position valves

Normally open position. P is not connected A normally, connected only when the valve is actuated

Normally open opsition, P is connected A. When the valve is not actuated the way is open.

Four-way valves:

Four way, Two position valves:

P is connected to A and B is connected to T

Second position P is connected to B and A is connected T.

Four way, Three position valve:

P,T,A,B

Mid position pump reticulating. P to T, A and B closed

H-Mid-position closed; P to A, B to T
