CMT section for the CMA advanced mobile valve

Introducing the CMT mobile valve section, a streamlined new section option for the Eaton CMA advanced mobile valve. With the capability to control two services from one section, CMT increases design flexibility and reduces CMA valve bank size, weight and overall system cost.

Configure the optimal valve for all vehicle requirements

Achieving the perfect platform design requires flexibility in the valve you choose. You need advanced control for some machine functions, but not all. With the availability of CMT and CMA sections, you now have the flexibility to create a tailored valve solution that matches the appropriate performance and capability with the specific machine function.

CMT sections provide highly accurate meter-in flow control. They are software-configurable and feature CAN communication, onboard sensors, digital flow-sharing and electronic load-sensing.

Redefine what your mobile machine can do

The Eaton CMA valve can solve just about every control challenge. From boom stability control to swing control, P-Q and more, these integrated control applications enable you to differentiate your machinery and allow your operators to get the job done quickly, safely and efficiently.

Increase design flexibility

CMT mobile valve sections are stackable with CMA sections, which increases the design flexibility of the CMA advanced mobile valve. You can merge the next-generation performance of CMA sections with streamlined CMT sections to create the optimal valve solution for new mobile machinery designs. The availability of two stackable section options simplifies the use of the CMA valve on high-end and mid-range machines without parts proliferation, due to shared componentry and procedures.

Optimize your valve system

A single CMT section is capable of controlling two separate machine functions independently. This can reduce the total number of sections needed in a valve bank by as much as 50%, minimizing valve bank size and weight.

CMA vs. CMT: What's the difference?


CMA sections feature independent metering, which uses two spools to control the supply and return flow for a single bi-directional actuator. The CMA section is capable of controlling both the flow and pressure simultaneously on a service. Electronic independent metering of port flow provides infinite control flexibility.

CMA sections are ideal for services that demand the superior precision and control of independent metering:

  • Boom control
  • Drilling/feed control
  • Grade control/level
  • Swing
  • Winching
  • Auxiliary functions


CMT sections contain two spools that are each capable of controlling the supply flow for an actuator. A single CMT section is capable of controlling two bi-directional actuators independently, which can be a cost-effective way to control services that do not require both meter-in and meter-out control.

CMT sections are ideal for machine functions that require accurate meter-in flow control:

  • Bucket
  • Clamping
  • Extension
  • Outriggers
  • Auxiliary functions
