New to our family of hydraulic axis positioners is now a module with integrated power stage and Profinet interface. This combination allows cost-effective and robust proportional valves to be used without internal electronics. The Profinet interface enables seamless data exchange with the machine control system. Setpoints and actual values are transmitted digitally and without loss of accuracy. Extensive diagnostic information is available. The unit can be fully parameterised via the free WPC-300 program as well as via the Profinet interface. For this option, we provide a convenient function block for controllers of the Simatic S7 series. This also makes it possible to save parameter sets in the PLC and automatically write them back in the event of a device replacement.
