Flexible Application with High Performance Standardized series of electro-hydraulic HICFP remote control plates from Rexroth with high-performance pressure reducing valves

HICFP remote control

HICFP remote control plates give customers a high degree of freedom in designing their own configuration and make it possible to optimally incorporate the plates into their application.

The new generation of electro-hydraulic remote control plates from Rexroth offers the user high flexibility, reliability and a high level of accuracy while reducing configuration costs. The plates are available in three sizes.

Remote control plates enable physical separation of the electrical controller and hydraulic circuit. They can be applied to control couplings, pumps and directional valves as well as used in additional proportional pilot controls, especially for mobile applications. Main application fields include feed forward control of control pistons in drills, excavators and cranes.

HICFP remote control plates come with up to six new-type proportional pressure reducing valves of type MHDRE in frame sizes 02, 04, and 06. This makes it possible to reduce system pressure incrementally with respect to the command value from an electric transducer, such as a joystick. This enables proportional pilot control for further downstream hydraulic components. The maximum flow rate is between 2.5 and 30 liters per minute depending on the frame size.

Useful life tests with 10 million load cycles document the high build quality. The HICFP series is rated with up to IP69K protection – depending on the connector type – the highest level of protection with respect to water penetration resistance.

Users can choose among different sizes and valve versions from the standard line. HICFP remote control plates are supplied with a pressure medium by hydraulic lines or a control oil supply, which can be mounted using an optional flange surface. This flange surface, in conjunction with the control oil supply, also enables additional components such as standard sandwich panels, accumulators, filters, and other auxiliary functions to be integrated.

The new line of HICFP remote control plates can be easily adapted to meet any user-specific requirement. The pilot pressure, adjusted in precise increments, ensures exact control of actuator motion in operation. Rexroth's many years of manufacturing experience in the field of hydraulics as well as advanced production and test processes provide for safety and reliability in field applications.
