New product - HcT is excited to announce the release of the new multi-function driver module called the evc (electronic Valve controller).
The evc controller from HCT offers the user multiple options in one neat package. The command signal can be either industry standard voltage ( 0 to 5 or 0 to 10V ) or current ( 4 to 20mA ) while the mobile industry can take advantage of the SAE J1939 compatibility using it as a powerful and effective local control node for distributed systems.
The one controller allows for basic proportional valve control as well as more complex applications that involve anti-stall, horse power optimization or even an automotive style operating platform, making this a very versatile all-in-one module.
Set-up tools such as data logging and real time graphing are available in the PC based Graphical User Interface which is also used for all configuration and operational modes selection, saving the settings once completed.
The evc module has been designed to be a cost effective solution to many of today's valve control projects, so the unit uses standard Deutsch connectors, operates with minimal wiring requirements and is fully encapsulated top protect to IP69K, meaning it can be mounted externally in extreme environments to save costly enclosures.
