Hybrid Actuation System actuators from Parker Cylinder Division are all in one self-contained actuators. They utilize permanent magnet brushless motors for ultra-compact power density. Pre-programmed and pre-configured drive kits are available for fast and easy installation. The HAS is loaded with all of the motor parameters, no tuning required. Based upon traditional hydraulic control, the simple to use pre-programmed drives are easy to install and operate a Hybrid Actuator. The pre-programmed drives offer users the ability to have common “valve type” control without the use of hydraulic valving. Mode type setup takes only a matter of seconds with kit supplied keypad.
Valve Type Options include:
- Electronic Flow Control: HAS velocity is regulated electronically by controlling pump RPM. Velocity is immune to fluctuating loads and remains constant when cylinder is loaded or unloaded, similar to a pressure compensating flow control. In addition to improved speed control, there is energy savings by eliminating losses associated with traditional restrictive flow devices.
- Valve Mode: Similar to cylinder operation with standard 4-way directional control valves, this simple operational mode allows direction control of the HAS actuator with simple push-pull discrete inputs. Cylinder extend and retract speeds is adjusted with the Electronic Flow Control setting on the key pad.
- Soft Shift Variance: Expanding on Valve Mode, key pad entry allow the user to adjust the ramp rate for smooth acceleration and deceleration time control, offering electronic cylinder cushioning.
- Motion Profiler: With simple discrete inputs, this mode allows for two speed operation without the need for an analog signal. Common applications are for a rapid approach and transition to a slower pressing speed, triggered off a limit switch. Can be used in either direction or in either order.
- Speed and Direction: Similar to traditional proportional valve control, this mode accepts an analog input signal to regulate and control the cylinder speed. Typical configurations include 0-10V, 4-20 mA, and +/-10V, allowing easy integration into existing Hydraulic Motion Controllers.
