2 Analog and 3 Frequency Inputs, 6 On/Off Outputs, 0-5A Output Rating
The controller drives up to 6 on/off valves at 5 Amps over a SAE J1939 network. Alternatively, the user can select pulsed, timed or PWM output types. It accepts up to 2 analog inputs (0-5V, 0-20 mA or 4-20 mA) and 3 digital inputs for connection to a variety of analog machine sensors or levers. The user can also select PWM, Frequency/RPM or 16-bit Counter inputs. Each input can be configured to measure the input value and send the data to a SAE J1939 network. In addition, any output on the controller could be configured to use any of the inputs as a control signal or an enable instead of taking the command information from the CAN bus. Standard embedded software is provided. Settings are user configurable via a Windows based Electronic Assistant configuration tool interfacing to the controller via an USB-CAN device. A valuable diagnostic feature involves reading and retaining in the unit’s memory the actual current draw from the solenoid(s). Rugged IP67 rated packaging in addition to a 9-36V power supply input section suits mobile equipment control applications.
