Bosch Rexroth has released an upgrade to its DS1 electrohydraulic controller for offshore winching. The control unit, called the DS2R, uses proportional valve technology to provide several advantages over its predecessor.
The DS2R controller attaches directly to the hydraulic axial piston of the secondary control unit to aid in motion control. An A4VSO axial piston provides open-loop torque control or an A4VSG axial piston provides closed loop torque control....More
