The Ex-Board: Wi-Fi ROS Proportional Solenoid Controller
The Ex-Board is the first Wireless and Wi-Fi Proportional Solenoid Valve Controller for all hydraulics, oleodynamics, diesel and gasoline applications. With a single board is now possible to remotely control multiple valves and solenoids, check the current consumption, the valve status, the system temperature, run algorithms thanks to its powerful CPU and trigger events depending on the board inputs. You can use it with ROS (Robot Operating System)!
Our Ex-Board is able to provide up to 4 PWM outputs channels for proportional solenoid control with proportional current and with a digital pulse width modulated (PWM) signal which can vary from 50 to 10kHz (5-95%). It can accept power supply voltages from 9 to 18 VDC. The Ex-board driver utilizes high frequency switching output (PWM) to provide a DC current output of 2 Amps (the maximum current can be configured by the user). A current sensing circuit maintains output current regardless of changes in input voltage and coil resistance. The user can adjust the zero setting, maximum output current, frequency to suit their application. A system of LED’s indicates output power level, input level and power on/off. The unit is available as a stand alone PCB Board or as a Packaged Driver enclosed in an IP67 rated metal housing. The box and DIN rail versions comply with CE directives for EMC. The Board can be easily programmed and configured by using C/C++ language or Arduino IDE or it can be delivered already programmed and ready-to-use. The board also accept RC inputs up to 5 channel so you can use your RC remote transmitter to control each valve.
