New Dual Valve Controller
Axiomatic has expanded its family of rugged valve drivers and I/O modules with the new AX022400 dual valve controller for machine control network applications such as proportional fan drive controls, closed loop valve controls and signal conversions.
The AX022400 controller is designed to interface with two fully independent universal command inputs selectable as voltage, current, resistive, frequency, rpm, pulse width modulated or digital types. It provides two independent software controlled outputs, up to 3A and selectable as proportional current, hotshot digital, PWM duty cycle, proportional voltage, or on/off digital types.The power supply input is 12, 24 or 48 V dc nominal and the input has one provided voltage reference, the company said.
The CAN user interface is compliant to SAE CAN J1939 and Axiomatic said that users can program custom functionality with the Axiomatic Electronic Assistant software for J1939 models or via an EDS file with standard service tools for CANopen Object Dictionary.
The dual valve controller can be mounted directly on the valve block or remotely. It is encapsulated in an IP67 rated aluminium housing and is suitable for moist, high shock, vibrating and non-hazardous environments.
