Product Description

Released in Woodward’s NetCon Controller Series, model 5501-429 is a 2CH Actuator Controller Module. Each channel of this two-channel model controls a proportional or integrating, pneumatic or hydromechanical actuator.

The 5501-429 model is a 25mA Version. The power requirements of this module are listed at +5 V @ 0.5 A, +24 V @ 1 A, and a max load resistance of 10/30 mA max. The NetCon Controller Series model part numbers indicate the maximum output current capability of the module, with several versions available in this series.

One or two position feedback devices (LVDT, RVDT) may be used on each actuator channel on the 5501-429. This module has several fault detection features, including alarms for errors related to excitation, feedback, and drivers. Position errors, logic power, microcontroller activity, and the CPU module are also monitored.

The 5501-429 has a red fault LED, used to indicate the status of the unit and enable efficient troubleshooting. In the event the controller is not communicating with the CPU module, a solid LED with be visible. If the LED is flashing, it is an indication of an internal problem, and the module should be replaced.

This module plugs into the motherboard when it is secured into a card guide in the control’s chassis. The module can be pulled out using two handles, located at the bottom and top. It is important to note that the 5501-429 requires a MicroNet low-density discrete cable.
