Voltage is a measure of the difference in potential energy per unit of charge between two points in a circuit or some other electrical space. The unit of voltage is the volt. Voltage is the energy per unit of electrical charge, measured as Newton-meter per coulomb. What&rsquo;s important is the force element (Newton).</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-technologies/analogies-between-hydraulic-and-electrical-systems-part-2" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-technologies/analogies-between-hydraulic-and-electrical-systems-part-2#comments Other Technologies Tue, 13 May 2014 13:51:00 +0000 26801 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Weighing the Benefits of Creep Speed http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-technologies/weighing-benefits-creep-speed-0 <div class="field-deck"> Creep speed may decrease a system’s margin of error, but it increases cycle time. </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Large positional errors can result when a programmable logic controller (PLC) selects the deceleration point. The error is caused by the scan-time delay in the digital controller, and it is directly proportional to the speed at the instant that the deceleration decision is made. To reduce this error, many open-loop motion controllers decelerate the system to a creep speed to approach the target position slowly. Thus, positioning error is made at creep speed instead of at maximum speed, so the ultimate position will be acquired more accurately.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-technologies/weighing-benefits-creep-speed-0" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-technologies/weighing-benefits-creep-speed-0#comments Other Technologies Fri, 14 Mar 2014 20:15:00 +0000 25811 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com 2014 Hydraulics & Pneumatics Best of Industry Awards http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/2014-hydraulics-pneumatics-best-industry-awards <div class="node-body link-body">After tallying the results from our readers, we proudly present the winners of our Hydaulics & Pneumatics Best of Industry Awards from the 2014 IFPE show in Las Vegas!</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/site-files/hydraulicspneumatics.com/files/HandPBestofAwardsVideoPromo.jpg?1394467376" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> Open In New Window </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/2014-hydraulics-pneumatics-best-industry-awards" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Other Technologies Mon, 10 Mar 2014 16:01:00 +0000 25501 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com
