Situation or Problem

Need more explanation on what Power Beyond is used for.

Summary

The Power Beyond hydraulic system is used as a pressure/flow source for additional functions equipped with independent flow control valves.  For example, planter vacuum motors, spray pumps, lift cylinders.  Use Power-Beyond when:

  1. Tractor SCV control is not needed.
  2. Implement control valve requires external load sense signal to prevent pump operation at high pressure.
  3. No other SCV outlet is available.

One major difference between a Selective Control Valve (SCV) and Power Beyond is an SCV has pressure/flow compensation whereas Power Beyond does not.  An SCV section has an internal component referred to as a pressure compensator valve.  The pressure compensator valve acts as a pressure regulator in the SCV section to maintain constant flow regardless of any other hydraulic function used. 

For example, a hydraulic motor running on SCV #1 may require 10 gallons per minute of hydraulic flow at 1500 psi.  If SCV #2 is engaged to run another hydraulic function that requires 6 gallons per minute at 2000 psi, the compensator in SCV #1 will balance this pressure change from hydraulic pump and maintain steady operation of the hydraulic function from SCV #1. 

For more information on Power Beyond for remote hydraulic connections, refer to tractor Operator's Manual.
