Directional control valve wiring


I have an Auto Crane 3202PRX that I am replacing a directional control valve on for the boom up/down function.  I purchased a Parker D1VW009CNKC91XB860 valve and I am trying to figure out how to wire it.  Can anyone help me?

The old valve was a Parker also, but the wires were colored, one yellow and one black for each solenoid, so I made a diagram showing which wires went where.  The new valve has just black wires on the solenoid, so I don't know what is the correct way to wire them.  

I am looking on the Internet, and while I've learned much about hydraulic valves and how they work, I haven't been able to find anything about the wiring of the solenoids.  A lot of valves have plug ends which make things simple, but these have the conduit box for joining the wires.

I would appreciate any suggestions, or if someone can point me in the right direction, maybe I can find more on the internet.

Thank you.


  • Hello. Thanks for reaching out. We recommend you reach out to one of our trusted distributor partners. They should be able to help you with your application.  You can find one in your area at this link: Where to Buy - Parker

  • It is a tandem, fixed displacement gear pump that provides high performance and high power density due to its aluminium construction. Technical specifications – H series, front pump: are computers important
    Displacements from 9.88 cc/rev to 30.18 cc/rev.
  • Color does not dictate their function in hydraulic valves; rather, you should focus on their electrical connections. Each solenoid on a valve should feature two wires coming out from it: one should provide power (typically hot), while the other provides grounding (commonly neutral).

    To successfully wire solenoids, it's necessary to identify which wire is for power and which for ground. You should find this information within your valve's documentation or manual; if not available there, Parker customer support or their website might provide diagrams specific to your valve model.
