AX020520 6 Input, 5 Output Valve Controller Multi-functional

6 Universal Inputs, 5 Outputs (0-2.5A), 100 mA +5V reference 

The valve controller provides precise, repeatable control of 5 proportional or on/off solenoids over a SAE J1939 network. PWM signal, pulse counter, frequency/RPM or digital inputs, as well as analog voltage or current inputs, are accepted for interface to a PLC, Engine Control Module or command potentiometers. Multiple switched inputs are provided to suit a range of applications. Each can be configured to measure the input value, and send the data to a SAE J1939 CAN network.

In addition, any output on the controller could be configured to use any of the onboard inputs as either a control signal or an enable signal, instead of taking the control information from the CAN bus. Diagnostics messages are provided over the CAN network for the status of inputs or outputs. Settings are user configurable to suit many applications. Configuration is via a Windows-based Electronic Assistant® configuration tool.
