HIGH COUNTRY TEK - Open-loop Proportional Solenoid Valve Controller, DRC Series

The DRC is an electronic control module for use with proportional solenoid valves in open loop systems. The module will provide current to the solenoids of the valve in response to various types of signals provided by the control system. Indicators on the front of the module provide an overview of the operating status. System configuration is accomplished through a convenient remote terminal. All settings are stored in permanent memory within the unit. The unit is housed in an attractive, compact enclosure
