The Canfield Connector Series B5950 is a rugged proportional driver built into an epoxy potted enclosure designed to control linear proportional solenoid operators. Features include selectable control signal inputs from 0-5V or 0-20 mA with adjustable min/max current output. The output steps to the minimum current setting when 0.1V or 0.4 mA is applied to the control signal input. Also included in the compact package is a 0.1 to 20 second adjustable ramp-up and ramp-down output and sine wave dithering (PWM) with adjustable amplitude and frequency. The B5950 has an output current that is proportional to the command signal input.
Assembly and mounting of the unit is accomplished by use of a 6mm diameter mounting hole in the body of the unit. Connection is made by use of a miniature header strip which accommodates stranded or solid wire to 3mm diameter. Adjustments are easily accessible on the top surface of the unit. Additional features include on-board diagnostics such as a red indicator light for power and a yellow indicator light for output to the solenoid. The B5950 can be used to control any solenoid operator designed to meet the technical specifications as shown on this brochure.
