The required data communication speed of 1 Mbit/s on the system’s internal data bus could not be achieved with regular communication systems, TTTech says.

Eaton Hydraulics Operations worked with the embedded control specialist to develop a communication system for up to 15 individually controlled proportional twin spool valves. The deterministic design incorporated TTTech’s time-triggered technology. The TTTech software environment enabled Eaton to use a model-based approach for developing the control loops whilst maintaining the advantages of a C-coded, high-performance framework.
