damper valve

damper valve

damper valve
A butterfly valve in an air duct. When the valve is open, the air flows through the duct; when it is closed, the butterfly valve is perpendicular to the airflow and does not permit any air to flow into the system. These valves are normally used in environmental systems and in fire-fighting systems. In the latter case, they shut off air supply to the combustion chamber in the event of a fire or an overheating condition.

In order to obtain the force output from damper [F.sub.di], the damper control signal is filtered by using a first order transfer function that models the delay behavior of the voltage controller and the damper valve. The vehicle model is used to calculate the body acceleration and velocity, and the damper velocity which are then fed back to the control system.
The system adaptively controls damper valve settings based on inputs from wheel displacement sensors and accelerometers, as well as from the chassis CAN bus.
These include a modified rear damper set-up, front and rear damper valve tuning and a new rear spring design.
The Roadster shares most of the technical and specification features of the V12 Vantage Coupe, but some elements have been redesigned including a new rear boot lid and lower front air intake plus a modified rear damper set-up, front and rear damper valve tuning and a new rear spring design.
In this second edition, coverage has been expanded to include greater coverage of the variety of damper types found historically, recent developments in magnetorheological dampers, and damper valve design.
You can now order a damper valve tool with NSN 5120-01-452-3364.
It improves steering on slippery surfaces while a damper valve in the steering mechanism enhances accuracy during hard cornering, especially on bumpy surfaces.
The changes include a thicker front and smaller rear anti-roll bars, new front stabiliser bushes, rear damper top mounts and tweaked damper valves. Combined with an updated yaw control system, it makes this CX-5 even sharper and more stable.
The electric control of the damper valves will make it possible to vary the nature of responsiveness to uneven road surfaces.
