Comatrol has launched four new proportional directional valves featuring precision hydraulic control. The new proportional valves were designed to address industry needs for solutions between on/off solenoid valves and higher-end proportional sectional valves. As a result, Comatrol's high resolution proportional directional valves provide flexibility and compact size ideal for broader application use by the agricultural market.At Agritechnica 2011, Comatrol rolled out the Linked Distributor Inventory system which connects together the Comatrol distribution network in real time. This system strengthens the ability of the Comatrol network of distribution partners to support OEM needs for product with market leading speed at the lowest transaction cost. The web-browser based application is available on all smart phone and tablet devices, allowing distributors on-the-go to buy and sell from other Comatrol distribution partners as part of a European network. Comatrol also released its flagship design software EasyValve™ 2.0 that takes custom HIC solutions to the next level. The drag, drop and deliver approach is utilised by designers in OEM, Distributor and Comatrol facilities across Europe, allowing Comatrol partners to access price reports in real-time. "Comatrol was established around speed and responsiveness to our customer's needs," said Lon Jennings, Director Sales, Marketing and Product Development.
