Parker IQAN-MC43

Master Controller with Large I/O Count for Bigger Applications – Total Vehicle Control.

High-Performance Master Controller for Cost Efficient Task Oriented Control. The IQAN-MC4x is a family of master controllers. The three 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-MC43 controller is a large I/O count module in the MC4 family. It is best for bigger applications such as total vehicle control (all hydraulic functions) when it is desired to have the controller centrally located to save valuable space. The IQAN-MC43 is designed to be either an IEC 61508 SIL2 Functional Safety (-FS) variant or a performance optimized, standard controller.
