New  Product  - emc-3, Programmable Series Valve Controllers

The new generation of fan controllers using electric motors starts with the market driven development of the emc-3. This robust module can individually control up to 3 banks of electric 'Smart' fans allowing precise and accurate forward or reverse cooling air flow across the radiator elements as needed, while the SAE J1939 interface on this module makes full use of the temperature data available while reducing the wire connections and harness requirements to a minimum size and complexity.

New  Product  - Two new multi-function driver modules called the evc (electronic valve controller) and epc (electronic pump controller).

The evc / epc controllers are new from the ground up, value engineered and upgraded versions of the Power-Line controller, that include all the operational features you are familiar with plus several new market demanded options that will help you to promote sales. Combining easy to use PC based Graphical User Interfaces (GUI's) for valve or pump configurations, with full current auto-ranging and smart command interfaces, makes this an ideal low cost inventory product for quick solutions and multiple uses from one part number.

evc / epc Product Features:
  • Fully written GUI's for fast, easy set-up by users with non-electronic capabilities – no need for software writers, high costs, time delays or specialized personnel
  • SAE J1939 node capability – use the module as an addressable dual proportional driver at point of need in ANY distributed I/O systems
  • Auto-ranging current output – from a few mA up to 3Amps, PWM output with variable dither frequency.
  • 0-5V, 0-10V 4-20mA or SAE J1939 addressable command inputs for mobile, industrial or digital interface to systems
  • Full CE and SAE J1455 ( Load Dump ) conformity
  • Industry standard 12-Pin Deutsch I/O connector (IP69K) for main connections to system
  • Sealed, USB-Mini B, to direct connect and power the unit at your desk for controller configuration, set-up, GUI familiarity and training, before going into the field
  • Diagnostic LED's with information flash codes for fast conclusion to wiring and operational issues
  • Private labeling with your logo, part number and website information as required
  • Unique 'Solid' potting with flame retardant materials

New  Product  - PTD-SS1, Plug Top Driver, Electronic Soft Shift Controller

The PTD-SS1 is a 'soft start, soft stop' controller for use with a range of valves including on/off valves. The controller can be set to jump to a preset 'step' voltage then ramp up to maximum at a preset rate. It can also be set to jump down to a preset 'step' voltage and ramp down to zero. These features can be used to eliminate 'bangs' or hydraulic shocks associated with operating a hydraulic valve.

New  Product  - epc-2, Dual Channel GUI and Controller Module

This epc-2 pre-written PC based graphical user interface ( GUI ) and corresponding application software allows the user to connect, calibrate and immediately use two separate input and output channels in one controller, making it ideal and very cost effective for open loop pump control or directional proportional control solutions.

Simple analog technology, full CE compliance and HCT’s signature potting process makes these very physically robust and ideal for use in valve stack or manifold applications.

Each controller comes pre-wired with 3M/10 feet of 4 core color coded cable as well as a complete mounting kit allowing secure connection to any valve with a DIN 43650 interface.

New  Product  - HGC-2 Generator Controller

The highly cost effective HGC-2 is designed to control a generator driven by a hydraulic motor where speed is controlled by a proportional solenoid valve, either directly at the motor or as part of the pump compensator.

The HGC-2 is a closed loop controller that monitors the AC line voltage from the generator output for outer loop closure and provides the necessary current to a valve coil in order to maintain the desired generator frequency.  The HGC-2 has a single LED indicator on the top of the unit to provide an overview of the operating status.
