Eaton Dual Stage Servo-Performance Proportional Directional Valve
AxisPro Dual Stage: Pilot spool goes to 4th position when power is removed. Amplifier has pilot and main-stage spool position feedback.
• Level 1: Digital version of the KBH valve
• Level 2: Has external sensor inputs, which allow closing higher level control loops on the valve, e.g. cylinder position/speed, force
• Level 3: Not available
KBH-05 10 Series, KBH-07 10 Series, and KBH-08 10 Series
AxisPro level 1 KBH valves, can be used to control machine motions in open loop or closed loop control applications. The valve receives its analog command input on the 7-pin, main, connector from an external axis control device.
AxisPro level 2 KBH valves, can be used to control machine motion in open or closed loop control applications. The valve can receive its analog command input on the 7-pin connector from an external axis control device or, with the available on-board motion control feature activated (via Eaton Pro-FX Configure), can close the external control loop around the actuator on the valve (taking feedback signal from cylinder or motor) – eliminating the separate motion controller. In this case the AxisPro valve receives a position, speed or force command and will create its own valve command needed to comply with the requested machine motion. In addition, digital communications over the CANopen bus is available for machine control or monitoring purposes.
