Helios Launches New Mobile Controllers

Helios Technologies recently launched uControl mobile machine controllers under its Enovation Controls brand for heavy-duty equipment in ultra-rugged environments.

Engineered for heavy-duty equipment of all shapes and sizes, uControl mobile machine controllers are equipped with multiple CAN channels, have extreme durability, and achieve total machine control with precision fluid power and equipment performance. Originally previewed in 2020, the uControl MC4-26-20 controller features software-selectable I/O, with 26 total inputs and 20 total outputs. It is joined by the uControl MC4-21-14-H8 high-current controller, featuring 21 software-selectable inputs with eight configurable high-current outputs and 14 configurable standard outputs. Also included in the series is the midrange uControl MC3-21-10 controller, with 21 inputs and 10 software-selectable outputs. The compact uControl MC2-18-6 controller boasts 18 inputs and six software-selectable outputs.

Fully sealed and rated to meet IP69K, uControl mobile machine controllers can handle the heat and vibration inside an engine compartment or anywhere else on equipment. The new uControl mobile controllers were designed for quick implementation and offer the flexibility to use CODESYS or ACE, a new software development platform from Enovation Controls that accelerates development time and efficiency by helping experts create robust control and display software without writing code.

Additional features and benefits of the uControl mobile machine controllers include an operating temperature range of -40°C to 105°C (-40°F to 221°F); soft-gel potted for shock and vibration resistance; compliance to CE mark per 2014/30/EU (EN 61326-1 & EN 60945); and conformance to ISO 13766.
