A hydraulic manifold is a component that regulates fluid flow between pumps and actuators and other components in a hydraulic system.
It could be compared to a switchboard in an electrical circuit, because it lets the operator control how much fluid flows between components of a hydraulic machinery.
A manifold is composed of assorted hydraulic valves connected to each other.
It is the various combinations of states of these valves that allow complex control behavior in a manifold.
Simply put, a hydraulic manifold distributes hydraulic oil throughout a circuit.
The flow of pressurized oil is regulated by hydraulic valves installed within the manifold and directed through hoses to some kind of work device, such as a hydraulic motor or a cylinder.
