German term or phrase: Proportionalventile
I could need some help translating this sentence into English.

"Alle Maschinenfunktionen werden durch die über Proportionalventile elektrisch angesteuerte Regelpumpe PI versorgt."

It is part of a manual for an extruder

Thanks a lot !

"Proportional valves"
Explanation:
Hope this hits the spot. I assumed the PI is an abbreviation of some sort for the pump (and not for "Private Investigator :->).

"All machine functions are fed by the modulating pump PI which is controlled electrically by proportional valves."
