It is possible to achieve a return on investment in a matter of months for a complete electro-hydraulic system with a High Country Tek (HCT) fan drive controller.

The HCT hydraulic fan system (HFS) controller suits virtually any style or type of cooling application and enables increased productivity by utilising available engine horse power for work not cooling. This results in a fuel consumption saving of 10-20% for your mobile, marine or industrial application.
Suitable applications for the HCT HFS controller include bus cooling, emergency vehicles, above ground mining equipment and agricultural machines.
The HFS controller works by optimising fan speed control relative to temperature requirements and includes a controller to expand existing system functionality. The product operates with all OEM electro-hydraulic equipment and is suitable for new OEM build or repower, retro-fit, or upgrade applications and is available as an on-road or off-road suitable mechanical package. 
Its transient suppression design and specification makes it suitable for use on all mobile equipment and is suitable for engines or systems with or without J1939 capability.The HFS controller features a pre-written graphical user interface for all modules and includes SAE-J1939 and RS232 serial communication and has a pre-written WindowsTM software application, ready for user values. The product has a system ‘error’ indicator LED with blink code and uses an Opto 3000 system for set-up and PC communications. The HFS controller is sealed and protected to >IP68 ( NEMA 6P) and has unique ‘solid’ potting with flame retardant materials. It also features open and short circuit cable protection with monitoring and a heavy duty industry standard Deutsch connector.With 3 discrete temperature zone sensor inputs, an additional 2 discrete switch inputs for fan speed override, and 1 PWM output for any make of proportional valve of pump control, the HCT HFS controller is an optimal choice for fuel efficiency in mobile systems.For more product information visit
