The EEA-PAM-561-D-32 is a power amplifier produced by Vickers, a company acquired by Eaton in 1999, and a well known name in the hydraulics industry. Vickers focuses on the development of advanced equipment and electronics for power and motion control applications. This power amplifier is part of the D-32 series and is designed based on an amplifier from the A-32 series. The EEA-PAM-561-D-32 adds several new features while retaining ones from the A-32. This amplifier is built to be used with the KFDG5V-5/7 proportional valve.
The nominal input power supply voltage for the EEA-PAM-561-D-32 is 24V, the control output voltage is 15V and the acceptable current range is from 0 to 20 mA. The amplifier can be stored in temperature ranges of -25 and 85°C. The ambient operating temperature for the device is between 0 and 50°C. The amplifier also makes use of pulse width modulation, which increases the device’s efficiency. The built-in test function allows the user to test settings and configurations to make sure everything is running correctly.
PID modules reside on the EEA-PAM-561-D-32 and are one of the new features found on the card. PID modules use a closed loop feedback system to automatically reach user defined values by constantly checking for errors and applying a correction. DIL switches and potentiometers, found on the front plate of the card, can be used to configure other settings like deadband compensation and ramp speed. The amplifiers redesign allows it to takes up less space on rack enclosures and requires less external wiring.
