HydraForce ECDR: An Overview

By Bob Wocjik

The ECDR is an Electronic Configurable Driver from HydraForce. The ECDR is ideal for use in situations such as:

  • A simple machine control with a handful of actuators
  • A complex system where just a few more PWM outputs or inputs are needed
  • Remote I/O expansion or optional equipment add-on
  • Any hardwired or CAN bus-based I/O supplement

The ECDR can approach a full-featured controller due to its custom logic programmability but at a much lower cost. Single and dual-output ECDRs can mount directly onto valve coil Deutsch connectors, saving space and harnessing.

However, the best feature is the free HF-Impulse software that allows configuration, programming, testing, and flashing the ECDR. A graphical interface of interconnected, predefined blocks makes it easy to create complex logic quickly. Larger ECDRs support standard-based CoDeSys programming.
