Electro-hydraulic system design: Making the right system choices
Author: Delta Computer Systems
Designers who understand and can take advantage of the differences between fluid power and traditional electromechanical power can build machines that produce higher quality output with lower lifecycle costs. This White Paper suggests that care must be taken, however, in selecting and sizing the hydraulic system elements and in tuning the motion controller for optimal performance.
- External thread, field-attachable DIN valve connectors for hydraulic, pneumatic and electromagnetic devices are now available in DIN Form B, C and Micro versions with electronic circuitry
- Model AST46PT explosionproof pressure/temperature transmitters generate both a pressure and temperature reading with the power consumption of one sensor.
- Linear actuators are designed to provide a universal solution for linear motion rod-style actuator applications
