MC4-H8 High‑Current Controller

The MC4-H8 high-current machine controller offers powerful control with software-selectable 15A outputs. 

The high-current version of the MC4 controller offers extra power with (8) 15A PWM outputs with dedicated status LEDs for each high-current output. Combined with 14 standard software selectable outputs, it features a total of 22 outputs and 21 inputs.

Built to perform in high heat and high vibration areas, MC4 series machine controllers deliver extreme durability with precision control. Featuring multiple CAN interfaces, open/short circuit protection, flexible universal inputs and software selectable outputs, MC4 controllers are ready and scalable for a variety of equipment needs and applications.

MCx series controllers are programmable with ACE (MC4-H8 support coming soon), an intuitive new development environment from Enovation Controls, or CODESYS (details on our Help Center).
