    Batteries for Wireless Sensors Deserve Some Thought

    Wireless sensors are no longer a novelty, but they haven't found widespread use in most fluid-power applications, either. Most wireless sensors are used primarily for applications where they are difficult to access. Another big advantage of wireless devices is potentially higher reliability, because wired connectors cannot corrode, break, or work themselves loose if there are none....More

    How to Calculate Loop Gain in Electrohydraulic Servo Systems

    Hey, don't look at me; I'm no expert in this field. But Robert Burton certainly was. He authored countless books and technical paper covering closed-loop control of electrohydraulic systems. He also contributed to Hydraulics & Pneumatics. 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....More
