A new iPhone app from In Situ Hydraulic Experts, a French hydraulic consulting company, is now available for download at the Apple Store. The app helps with unit conversions and equivalence values for hydraulic pumps, motors, and cylinders. It also helps you calculate motor and mechanical pump power.
As an example, fields are given for hydraulic pump technical specifications, such as displacement, rotational speed, volumetric efficiency, theoretical and actual flow, pressure, and hydraulic power. Users simply enter data, select calculate, and the app quickly displays solutions.
In Situ says this is the first of many fluid power iPhone apps it intends to release.
