Simplify valve connections
The 12-mm wide module provides high performance with flexible valve control operation modes for heavy equipment in the mining, oil and gas, and metal forming industries.
Two single-coil valves or one dual-coil valve are controlled either uni- or bi-directionally. For each channel or coil, the output current is 2 A in 1-channel operation and 1.6 A in 2-channel operation.
Two current-controlled pulse-width modulation outputs (24 V) with adjustable dither minimize motion, which is adjusted to the valve around the rest position. This allows the set point to be defined without considering static friction and prevents the valve from being stuck by medium residues.
Characteristic curve adaptations, such as zero offset, dual gain compensation or range limitations are adjustable according to parameters. Two additional digital inputs connect to sensors or switches and are configurable for multiple functions, including JOG, TRIP, and HOLD. Start-up and valve parameter adjustments are configured with WAGO-I/O-CHECK software or program code.
It operates via MODBUS TCP, EtherNet I/P, CAN or PROFIBUS, and is equipped with CAGE CLAMP connection technology.
WAGO is a manufacturer of connection technologies based in Germantown, Wis.
