MAP2L joystick is designed to directly control two proportional solenoid valves (one section of an electrically controlled hydraulic distributor). The PWM command of the coils is feedback controlled, in order to guarantee the current stability indipendently to external factors (power supply voltage, coil temperature, …). The frequency of the PWM outputs is adjustable from 50 Hz to 300 Hz (preset to 100 Hz). The electronic card is protected against short-circuits of the load. The MAP2L joystick is preset for a generic 24 V proportional valve, with 250 mA minimum current and 850 mA maximum current. Fall and rise timeramps are preset to zero. It can be necessary to modify the original preset values, in order to achieve better performances of the joystick in various applications (with different supply voltages or with different kind of proportional solenoid valves). Setting can be changed using a PC with the SepSim Windows® program and a special serial port adapter with M8 connector (code: PISPR).


A multicolor LED under the mounting panel is lit when joystick is supplied and gives information on the status of the
device with a coded series of colored flashes.
