You have probably heard of Sun Hydraulics’ I / 0 modules – the XMD series – to be specific. The XMD series consists of configurable single and double-output drivers used with proportional and solenoid-operated switching valves. It is an electro-hydraulic driver for use with mobile and industrial hydraulic equipment, with the ability to electrically control hydraulic actuators used in many applications.
With the new CANpoint XMD configuration software you can fully control the XMD mobile drivers, all at your fingertips. This new software allows users to implement open-loop, closed-loop (PID) and hydraulic fan drive control using pre-programmed modes for the dual-output driver.
So how can you get your hands on this software? The new CANpoint XMD configuration software is available as a free download on Sun Hydraulics’ website. That’s right, free!
Without getting into too much detail about this new, efficient software, here are some of the highlights:
- Dashboard: What you need to evaluate your application and optimize your results is available at a glance.
o Real-time plotting
o Data logging for post-analysis
o Real-time view of inputs and outputs
o Data in raw and scaled values
o Diagnostic indicators with descriptions
- Input options include: voltage, current, PWM, frequency, resistive and digital
- Output settings: Experienced users have the ability for advanced functionality options, including output current regulation PIUD
settings and robust fault detection that includes user-defined fault status modes. There are also options for the average user,
providing a simplified output menu for most common solutions and end-use cases.
- I/0 configuration modes: Open-loop or closed-loop mode
The new CANpoint XMD configuration software was created to make your life easier. If you want a deeper dive into getting set up, you can check out the CANpoint Quick Start Guide. For any other questions, contact GCC today. We are available via phone, email or online chat.
