Click for Optional Hardened Version


V/IP is a DIN rail mounting programmable controller for Electro-Hydraulic drive systems. It can be used to replace obsolete control cards and PLCs and provides documentation with clear, graphical function blocks and easy to follow signal flow diagrams.

V/IP can also be networked over Ethernet with valves, operator stations, SCADA systems, etc., using the Nutron Internet accessable distributed control technology.

The DESIGNUTRON programming and Electro-Hydraulic system design software tools can be downloaded free.

It’s intuitive ... if you can sketch out your control scheme, you can build it!
