HydraForce ECDR-0506A enhances control of hydraulic proportional valves.
HydraForce has added its configurable ECDR-0506A electronic valve driver used to enhance the control of hydraulic proportional valves. The controller features a 32-bit processor, six inputs (four analog and two digital) and five outputs (four closed loop and one open loop). Its 8-32VDC voltage rating allows it to handle a range from battery to full voltage. It is also CAN-capable, with a CAN 2.0B communication interface capable of reading CANOpen and SAE J1939 communication protocols. A bi-color LED, red and green, provides a quick status check for troubleshooting. Designed for use in extreme environments, the driver carries a IP69K environmental rating with an operating temperature range from -40 to 85°C (-40 to 185°F).
