Parker Hannifin Corporation has introduced a new line of electronic controls that enable users to optimize hydraulic performance and efficiency in a range of mobile and industrial open circuit applications. P1/PD series pumps with these Parker-developed electronic controls are available with or without a programmed electronic unit (ECU). Basic functions include fan control, proportional displacement and pressure controls, and over center capability for energy recovery applications.
The Parker electronic control line provides designs with:
- “Max” displacement default position for power-loss critical applications such as fan drive application,
- “0” displacement default position for safety in mobile applications,
- Electronic displacement controls for accurate speed control, and
- Electronic P/Q controls for flow and torque management.
The P1/PD pump electronic control selection covers all seven frame sizes.
Equipped with electronic controls, which are fully compatible with IQAN ECU, Parker P1/PD series pumps become intelligent hydraulic components. Parker”s IQAN software and MDL display modules make it possible for system designers to integrate all control systems into one, including pump, sensors, throttle and engine. They allow OEMs to improve machine operation by optimizing the hydraulic performance as well as reduce fuel consumption and emissions by ensuring that the exact amount of hydraulic power is supplied when needed. – www.phpump.com
