Pick and hold module
Based on a microcontroller that can be reprogrammed, the OES PH-ET pick and hold module integrates into new and existing applications. The module operates on a single supply voltage from 9 to 50VDC; a snubber diode suppresses voltage spikes. Pick voltage timing and hold voltage are adjusted using onboard potentiometers. The module accepts a TTL command voltage of 0 to 3VDC or 4 to 20mA signals. It drives solenoids, valves, relays, actuators, DC motors including voice coil and moving magnet linear motors, hydraulics, electromagnets and LEDs.
