A small capacity servo valve was developed for a small size water hydraulic manipulator, focusing the saving energy. The new servo valve optimizes the machines small flow rate use, makes the stroke longer for wideband use, reduces leakage and makes control easier. The test and evaluation of the servo valve was conducted by examining flow rate characteristics, leakage characteristics and responsibility. The flow rate and leak rate of the servo valve shows to be the same as the oil hydraulic servo valve, while the step and frequency response show good controllability for the water hydraulic manipulator.
