EPIC-X Proportional Controller

The EPIC-X is an Electronic Proportional Integrated Controller developed by Hyteco for a wide range of electronic control applications. It functions as a multi-channel amplifier dedicated to driving hydraulic proportional valves with a Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) voltage, relative to a varying input signal.

The multiple configuration options make the EPIC-X one of the most flexible, stand-alone controllers in its class.
The EPIC-X is available in two applicable sizes:

  • EPIC-XL with 8 x 4-pin M12 connectors (inputs and outputs)
  • EPIC-XS with 4 x 4-pin M12 connectors (inputs and outputs)
The absolute consistency of the EPIC-X will give your solution a competitive edge, whether controlling the slew speed of a crane, keeping a vehicle lifting platform level, maintaining the speed and pressure of a tugboat winch, or regulating and adjusting the output flow of a water truck.

Features of the EPIC-X include:
  • Wide operating DC voltage range
  • A variety of industry-standard inputs are available, (0-10V, 4-20mA, Binary, etc)
  • Current-controlled PWM outputs
  • Standard M12 connectors
  • Overload and short-circuit protection
Advantages of the EPIC-X include:
  • Reduced cost
  • Flexibility in response to design changes
  • Fast setup and configuration
  • Settings security

The robust housing allows the EPIC-X to operate in extremely harsh environments. It is rated to IP67 and is resistant to vibrations. The unit has been designed to meet electromagnetic compatibility standards of Australia and Europe.
A status LED provides diagnostic information and fault codes. More fault finding information is provided by the EPIC-T tuner.

Use the Tuner to set and forget. The entire configuration can be performed using a hand-held EPIC-T Tuner, including:
  • Minimum and Maximum output current
  • Individual ramp times on increase & decrease for each channel
  • Adjustable PWM frequency
  • Fine tune the input range
  • Monitor controller behavior and machine response
Connectors:
Hyteco stock a range of M12 wireable plugs or fully moulded M12 cable adaptors to suit various valve plugs. Please consult our sales team for our full range of connectors, plugs and cables.
