C., offers an energy-saving alternative to conventional fixed-speed hydraulic power units (HPUs) using variable-displacement pumps. Instead, the industrial HPU drives a fixed-displacement pump at variable speed. This technique drives the pump at the speed necessary to provide the required flow up to 20 lpm &ndash; all while maintaining a constant pressure for clamping or other functions.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/vfds-help-hpus-be-more-efficient" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/vfds-help-hpus-be-more-efficient#comments Controls & Instrumentation Fri, 15 Aug 2014 16:39:00 +0000 28321 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Sensor Sets the Table in Simplicity http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/sensor-sets-table-simplicity <div class="node-body article-body"><p><strong>Sensor sets the table in simplicity</strong></p> <p>Whenever you&rsquo;ve eaten at a restaurant, cafeteria, or anywhere else outside the home, you were most likely served by products from The Vollrath Co.

Not only does the pressure reading scroll 360&deg; around the circumference of the transducer, it is displayed in either red or green. Green inidcates that the pressure is within a prescribed range, and red indicates that pressure is out of range. This lets workers know immediately if pressure is excessively high or low without having to read values. The display can also be locked&nbsp; in one location.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/field-programmable-pressure-switch-led-display" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/field-programmable-pressure-switch-led-display#comments Controls & Instrumentation Tue, 24 Jun 2014 16:04:00 +0000 27471 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com
