Electronic Displacement Control For Eaton X20 Pumps
By Mike Osenga16 November 2018
Eaton has introduced electronic displacement control across all its X20 portfolio of open circuit piston pumps.
The Electronic Displacement Control (EDC) varies the swash angle proportionally per the electric current, with direct control over pump output flow, Eaton said. This allows multiple functions with different system requirements to individually operate while delivering precise use of the total power available.
The X20 portfolio EDC is available on all displacements from 28 cc to 98 cc and with two different configurations, default to full displacement (EP) or default to zero displacement upon loss of electronic signal, (“EPD”). This permits the EDC to be used in applications such as cooling fan drives or concrete machinery, where hydraulic flow must be maintained even in the event of an electrical failure.
