Solution Requirements & Considerations
  • Sensor Cylinder Output Type Options
  • Analog
  • Voltage—Simple and easy to troubleshoot
  • Current—Simple and works over distances up to 4,000ft per IEEE standard
  • Pulse Width Modulation (PWM)—Simple
  • Digital
  • ISOBUS, CANopen, etc.—More complex to implement than analog but provides tightly coupled integration with multi-sensor controller and simplified wiring harness. Requires more technical expertise to fully integrate
  • Controller
  • Hardware Options
  • Purpose-built hardware (Parker IQAN, Danfoss PLUS+1, etc.)
  • Smartphone or tablet
  • Existing hardware (possibly engine control module)
  • Panel meter / light
  • Software Options
  • Proprietary software code built for dedicated hardware
  • Custom app developed for iOS or Android platforms
  • Valve
  • Solenoid On/Off—Acceptable low-cost option
  • Electro-proportional—Provides smoother operation and provides the ability to control cylinder velocity and cushioning when paired with the proper controller
  • Wire Harness
  • Existing CANBUS / ISOBUS
  • New Dedicated
  • Hybrid—Wired and Wireless communication
  • Bluetooth—Simple to implement with a typical communication range of ~33ft.
  • WiFi—Simple and communication range of 5x to 10x more than Bluetooth
