West Plus Series P6170 P8170 and P4170 Open Loop Valve Motor Drive Controllers

West 6170+, 4170+, and 8170+ valve motor drive (VMD) controllers have been specifically designed for open loop valve motor drive applications.

Like other controllers in the West Plus series, these devices can be configured off-line through a dedicated port and Windows-compatible software.
