Allied Electronic Controls

The term, “Confusing” is probably not sufficient to summarize all the changes to Allied PTO electronic control winches in the last few years. We are here to make it easy. The electronic valve changes apply to models: Allied W6G, Allied W8L, and Allied W12E.

(you can skip to the bottom if you just want the answers)

  • 3 different valves
  • 4 different solenoid groups
  • 4 different internal wiring harness
  • 2 different winch plugs
  • 3 different joysticks
  • 2 different module boxes
  • Updated module required external harness change
  • New programs required for all new module

With all these changes the winch will only run correctly using ONE of these combinations. It only takes one wrong wire to make the winch not work.

Each update improved winch performance and once you know what to look for getting the right parts is pretty easy. 

The latest update is the Blue valve GENII valve which offers fantastic control. As of 12/14/19 most of the new module/harness part numbers are not listed in the winch manuals so this blog post is the best way to understand how these changes effect you. Allied has released several in-house part number groups to help with any conversions or repairs. With the information listed here, you should have a clear road map to get your winch working correctly. These are the MAJOR things you need to look at to select the right parts. If you get the major things right the rest will fall into place.


Knowing what valve you have is critical to start the process. If we have the serial number of the winch we can tell you what valve the winch was built with, but it only takes a minute to pull the valve cover and check the valve color.

1st release Red Valve

2nd release Silver Valve and 2.1 Updated Wiring

Silver valves need to be modified to work properly. You can find the updated check valves numbers here:

3rd release = Latest “GenII” Blue Valve

  • This Blue valve is much better than the original red valve, and slightly better than the silver valve after modifications.


If you are buying a new module, your only option is the current DVC710, as the DVC10 has been discontinued. If you have a good old DVC10 you can still get the parts to work with it, but it cannot be replaced. The old DVC10 had a slightly different pin arrangement going into the module plug, and required a voltage reducer on the harness, whereas the new DVC710 has a voltage converter for the signal integrated into the module.

If you have the OLD DVC10 use external harness

Plastic winch Plug # 2310079

Metal deutsch plug # 2311444

If you have the NEW DVC710 use the external harness

Metal deutsch Plug # 2316785


If you have the latest joystick # 2314999 , you won’t need any adapters, but if you have the old winch joystick numbers # 2310552 or # 2307886W you’ll need the conversion kit noted below .

4.)Winch Harness Plug has 2 types

1.The older winches use a plastic plug connector

2.The newer winches and all new releases are designed to work with the metal Deutsch plug.

SOLUTION: Converter # 2315251 to adapt the plastic plug to the current metal type Used in Kit # 2316785 for DVC710.

If you are addressing any electronics on Allied PTO winches, here is what you need to know: 

CONTROL MODULE: Order a module DVC710 with the correct program using the chart below.

  • You’ll NEED to update the harness if you change to the new module.
    • Order external harness # 2316785 / 2317429 if you have all current parts with Deutsch plug and are just updating the module.
    • Order external harness conversion kit # 2317019 if you have any older components mixed with DVC710 update. (you’ll have to call in part number)

    We have a chart to provide winch specific module program and harness groups provided by Allied, but these update to often to post online.

If you are replacing any part of the electronic system wiring for Allied PTO winches, it’s important to know which module you are using (DVC10 vs DVC710), and make sure you are ordering the correct parts to match your arrangement.
