But Robert Burton certainly was. He authored countless books and technical paper covering closed-loop control of electrohydraulic systems. He also contributed to <strong><em>Hydraulics &amp; Pneumatics</em></strong>. And even though his works wer published about 20 years ago, he insight into the behavior of loads, hydraulic flow and pressure, and electronic control are just as relevant today.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/hitch-post">The Hitch Post</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/blog/how-calculate-allow-loop-gain-electrohydraulic-servo-systems" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/blog/how-calculate-allow-loop-gain-electrohydraulic-servo-systems#comments Controls & Instrumentation The Hitch Post Fri, 29 May 2015 13:31:00 +0000 32721 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Has the Next Generation Arrived? http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/has-next-generation-arrived <div class="node-body article-body">Aside from a big jump from analog to digital control, electronics in fluid power has gone through evolutionary changes.
