Parker IQAN-MC42

Master Controller for Mid-Size Applications and I-O Distribution.

High-Performance Master Controller for Cost Efficient Task Oriented Control. The IQAN-MC4x is a family of master controllers. The 3 sizes may be used in different ways.

  • MC41 for cost efficient task oriented control
  • MC42 mid-size applications and I/O distribution
  • MC43 large space-saving centralized control

The IQAN-MC42 controller is an intermediate I/O count module in the MC4 family. It is best for mid-size applications such as powertrain control (e.g. power shift transmissions), distributing I/O on a vehicle (physically placed by functions), or to act as an additional controller in systems where the main controller does not provide enough I/O for the system. The IQAN-MC42 is designed to be either an IEC 61508 SIL2 Functional Safety (-FS) variant, or a performance optimized, standard controller.
