Standard mobile controller

The HCX is a control device, specially developed for a wide range of applications in the mobile hydraulics sector. The controller is available with customer-specific software. The PC program ConDoc enables a rapid adaptation to the individual machine data as well as a comprehensive diagnosis. The HCX hardware, which has been reliably tested in numerous mobile machines, is also available as programmable logic controller. Thus it combines the advantages of the proven hardware platform with those of free programming according to the international standard IEC 61131-3. Integrated current drivers and drivers for analog inputs, frequency inputs and switch inputs provide for a fast programming result.
