The working principle of auxiliary hydraulic loop module is as follow, the discharge of low pressure oil in rod side is less than the inflow of high-pressure oil in piton side when the piston extended, so the supplement of oil is insufficient in the inlet of pump, at this time, the check valve opens reversely and the shortage of oil is suctioned from accumulator; on the contrary, the quantity of outflow oil in piston side is more than outflow oil in rod side when the piston retracts, the pilot-operated check valve opens reversely to the accumulator through the control circuit shown in dot line, therefore, the flow balance between rod side and piton side of the hydraulic cylinder is realized for the bidirectional axial piston pump.
