News & Events
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.

New Product - DVC710, 700 Series System Controller Module
The DVC710 Master Module is the main control module for all DVC700 series modules. It has a large number of inputs and outputs to work as a stand-alone unit or it can be the main module for a large CAN Bus system of DVC700 serial expansion modules. Dual SAE J1939 Can ports and an RS-232 port is used for programming, monitoring and driving an external display.
New Product - TekBook-110
Our new TekBook-110 will now allow mobile users and field operatives to have access to HCT’s full featured standard graphical user interfaces ( GUI’s ) for specialty and DVC product ranges, making programming, set-up, data-logging and modifications easier, simpler and clearer than ever before.
New Product - Plug Top Driver
High Country Tek, Inc. Introduces the latest in a range of cost effective proportional driver products. These Plug Top Drivers (PTD) are designed to control single valve coils, and come in 12 or 24V versions that can interface with 4-20mA or 0-10V command signals.
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.
