ECU1/ECU2 Series

Energy-Conservation Unit

Power Savings with Energy-Saving Operation

Retrofit to existing hydraulic power supply units

An Eco Unit can be retrofitted to an existing QF-A/QF-B/AF Series hydraulic power supply unit.
(A model 4830 servo controller is required to set energy-saving operation.)

Remote operation

Energy-saving settings (motor set frequency and supply pressure) for the hydraulic power supply unit can be set from the model 4830 servo controller or Windows software. (Patent pending)

Optimal energy-saving operation performed automatically

If the Windows software is used with the Eco Unit, the optimal energy-saving operation can be performed automatically according to the test conditions and circumstances. It ensures effective energy-saving operation while performing the target testing.

Energy-saving operation suppresses the noise and heat generation from the hydraulic power supply unit.

4830 Servo Controller

Features

  • Push test function for testing actual objects
    Allows stable peak-value control using the test force, even for specimens with "play" (areas where no test force is applied).
  • Enhanced stability
    Features overload prevention for manual operation and upthrust prevention that works when a hydraulic power supply unit starts up (automatically sets control error to zero).
  • Superb operability
    The test conditions can be set on a touch panel or jog dial.
    Test conditions including test frequency, test force, and displacement can be changed at any time during the test.
    Intuitive screen displays allow operation without referring to the manual.
  • Highly versatile
    Allows synchronous control of up to four testing machines (actuators).
    Diverse waveform displays, including X-T, X-Y, and peak graphs. USB connection to a computer permits various test settings and advanced data acquisition.

Configuration of Eco Unit

● ECU1: Controls the motor power supply frequency only (Configuration [1])
● ECU2: Controls the motor power supply frequency and supply pressure (Configuration [1] and [2])

Note) The Eco Unit is operated by a 4830 servo controller. If the existing controller is not a 4830 servo controller, it must be upgraded.
