Open Frame Proportional Controller | Series OF

The new Open Frame Proportional Controller system is designed for Industry 4.0 applications and provides closed loop control of flow, pressure, and position.

The new Open Frame Proportional Controller system is designed for Industry 4.0 applications and provides closed loop control of flow, pressure, and position.

The system is made up of two base modules: HEAD and EXPANSION, which can be combined as needed depending on the application.


BASE FUNCTIONS

Flow control by using pressure sensors and calibrated orifices

  • The Head module used alone allows the creation of a two-way flow control valve in a closed-loop configuration.
  • The use of the Head-Expansion combination allows the creation of a three-way flow control valve with the same performance.

Pressure control with a pressure sensor

  • The Head module used alone allows the creation of two-way closed-loop pressure control.
  • The use of the Head-Expansion combination allows a three-way closed-loop pressure control.

Closed-loop position control for pneumatic cylinders with a position feedback system

  • The use of the Head-Expansion combination allows a closed-loop position control.

SYSTEMS SOLUTIONS

All base functions may be combined to application solutions and communicate amongst each other via CANopen.


APPLICATIONS

The Open Frame Proportional Controller can be easily configured to meet specific application needs, to provide the most efficient, turnkey solutions, thus reducing assembly times and system complexity.

The different Head and Expansion modules can be combined and driven through simple serial communications, making the control of complex applications easier.

Typical applications could include the mixing of different gases, piloting different pressures in different parts of the machine, or the positioning of a pneumatic cylinder through a single control signal.
