FLUID POWER: Enfield Technologies’ Enfinity® System for advanced proportional control comprises Enfield Technologies” M2 pneumatic control valve and C2 controller. The M2 is an instrument-grade, proportional, directional control pneumatic valve that is designed for high performance. It utilizes a specialized linear force motor, as opposed to a traditional proportional solenoid. The M2’s aperture is controlled at a very high speed, allowing the valve to respond quickly to set-point command changes. Enfield Technologies’ C2 is an enclosed high-speed, high-accuracy analog controller with multiple PID and feed-forward options. It includes an intuitive, user-friendly, digital LCD/membrane keypad user interface. Independent scaling of command and feedback signals adds to the C2’s flexibility. Since both the M2 valve and C2 controller are available with an integrated driver, the user can choose to purchase an Enfinity System with the driver included in either of the two components. Although the Enfinity System is ideal for users who want the flexibility to create breakthrough applications, both of its components can also be purchased individually for use with other Enfield Technologies products.
