Function
Power supply unit [1] The amplifier card is provided with a power supply unit with making-current limiter. It supplies all the internally required positive and negative voltages. The making-current limiter prevents high making-current peaks caused by smoothing capacitors in the current output stage. Command value preselection The internal command value signal is generated from the sum (summation [6]) of the external command value signal applied to differential input [2] and current input [3], called signal [4] and zero point offset [5] (zero point potentiometer Zw). The following is valid: Normalized value 100 % 0% 100 % 0% Current input 4 mA 12 mA 20 mA < 1 mA ** Differential Comm. value Direction input meas. socket of flow 10 V 0V 10 V 10 V 0V 10 V 0V P to A, B to T P to B, A to T Enable function [8] The enable function enables the current output stages and passes the internal command value signal on to the ramp generator. The enable signal is indicated by an LED on the front panel. When the enable is cut in, the internal command value changes (with any preselected command value) according to the set ramp time. This ensures that a controlled valve does not open abruptly. Ramp generator [9] The ramp generator limits the gradient of the control variable. The downstream step functions and amplitude attenuators do not extend or shorten the ramp time. Jumper J2 can be used to set the ramp time to minimum (< 2 ms) (ramp off). External ramp time adjustment The ramp time set internally can be extended using an external potentiometer. The setting can be checked with the help of the measuring socket. In the case of a cable break, the internal presetting will be used automatically. Characteristic curve generator [11] The adjustable characteristic curve generator can be used to adjust the step-change height and maximum values separately for positive and negative signals in accordance with the hydraulic requirements. The actual curve shape through the zero point is not step-like, but linear. Amplitude limiter [12] Command value call-ups [4] Four command value signals, w1 to w4, can be called up. External command value voltages (command values 1 to 4) are fed forward either directly through regulated voltage outputs +10 V and 10 V or via external potentiometers. If the command value inputs are connected directly to the regulated voltages, the command values can be adjusted using potentiometers w1 to w4. If external potentiometers are used, the internal potentiometers act as attenuators or limiters. Only one call-up is possible at a time. If several call-ups are activated simultaneously, call-up 1 has lowest priority, call-up 4 highest priority. The active call-up is signalled by a yellow LED on the front panel. Command value inversion [7] The command value that was generated internally from input signals, command value call-ups and the -zero point offset signal can be inverted with the help of an external signal or jumper J1. The application of an external inversion signal is signalled by an LED (1) on the front panel. The internal command value is limited to approx. 110 % of the nominal range. Oscillator [14] The oscillator generates the control signal for the inductive position transducer. Demodulator [15] The demodulator generates the actual value signal of the valve spool position from the position transducer signal. 100 % 10 V Position controller [17] The position controller is optimised to the individual valve. Current output stage [18] The current output stage generates the clocked solenoid current for the proportional valve. The solenoid current is limited to 2.5 A to 2.8 A per output. The current output stage outputs are short-circuit-proof. In the case of an internal fault signal or missing enable, the output stages are deactivated. Fault detection [19] The position transducer cable is monitored for cable break and short-circuit on the primary side, and the output stages for excessive current. [ ] = Cross-reference to the block circuit diagram on page 4

**If the current input is not activated or in the case of a cable break of the command value cable, the resulting internal command value signal is 0 %. There is no changeover between current and voltage inputs. The inputs are permanently available (see terminal assignment).
