Proportional Valve Driver

ProControl™ PCD - Proportional Valve Driver

Set up, evaluate and operate any proportional valve in minutes with Humphrey’s easy-to-use benchtop proportional valve controller. The versatile design allows excellent flexibility of various drive/control inputs or manual operation. Valve and interface can be controlled with a host of data acquisitions, such as PLCs, IOTs or sensor feedback (closed-loop) systems.

Humphrey ProControl™ PCD is the premier valve driver for controlling proportional solenoid valves of one amp or less. This proportional valve driver applies to any device, regardless of the valve manufacturer. 

It’s compatible with a variety of input signals to achieve your valve’s desired output. And PCD’s user-friendly features will save you valuable time thanks to its quick setup.

Our application and engineering staff will readily answer your questions, provide valve selection assistance, or discuss special modifications needed for specific applications. Call 800-477-8707 or fill out our technical services contact form for assistance.

Proportional Valve Driver Compatibility

PCD is compatible with various control logics, such as PLCs, IOTs, closed-loop sensor feedback configurations and various data acquisition systems. Drive your proportional valve through PCD with a 12 or 24V DC power supply.

PCD users can bench test any proportional valve of 1 amp or less with PCD set in manual mode. Transition smoothly to system level testing using the data acquisition system by “scrolling” PCD to the appropriate setting.

Industries that utilize PCD include:

  • Biomedical equipment and devices, which requires accurate performance/precision repeatability
  • Industrial environments, due to PCD’s rugged, durable packaging
  • Analytical and laboratory applications, where simplicity and “plug and play” functions like sensor calibration, precise motor control and equipment evaluations are ideal
