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 Visitors bring us a scoop on pressure transducers http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/blog/visitors-bring-us-scoop-pressure-transducers <div class="node-body blog-body">Highly visible LED display and Bluetooth capability make pressure monitoring easier than ever.</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/visitors-bring-us-scoop-pressure-transducers" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/blog/visitors-bring-us-scoop-pressure-transducers#comments Controls & Instrumentation News The Hitch Post Tue, 24 Jun 2014 15:19:00 +0000 27511 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Motion Controller Provides Synchronized Motion of Multiple Axes http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/products/motion-controller-provides-synchronized-motion-multiple-axes <div class="node-body article-body">Delta Computer Systems Inc., Battle Ground, Wash., recently introduced an enhanced motion-control synchronizing feature for press applications.

A closed hydraulic valve blocks flow, but an open valve allows flow. These are clearly contradictory analogies that are often confounding to those who are seeking to cross-fertilize, so to speak, and learn the other language and concepts. There is a method to this madness, or at least an explanation, that belongs in the pantheon of &ldquo;No wonder we don&rsquo;t understand each other.&rdquo;</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/hydraulic-electric-analogies-part-3-open-and-closed-contradiction" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/hydraulic-electric-analogies-part-3-open-and-closed-contradiction#comments Controls & Instrumentation Fri, 30 May 2014 18:51:00 +0000 27021 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com
