Title: ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED VALVE FOR A SHOCK ABSORBER
Abstract:
An electrically controlled valve (1) for a shock absorber (2). The valve comprises a piston (7) providing a primary fluid channel (10) for damping fluid. A piston holder (5) is provided with an internal secondary fluid channel (11) for damping fluid. Fluid flow (23) through the secondary fluid channel is controlled by a spool (12) movable within the piston holder (5) by means of an electrically controlled actuator (13). Fluid flow (23) through the secondary fluid channel (11) is controlled by restriction at the inlet of the secondary fluid channel (11), said inlet comprising one or more radial holes through the piston holder.
