Hydraulics get a boost from advanced electronics

11/30/2013 | Thomas Regional

New algorithms for electronic controls promise greater reliability, efficiency and precision for hydraulic systems, giving fluid power a new lease on life in industries that had largely abandoned hydraulics, contends RP Siegel. "With digital electronics we can now take measurements and adjust forces, thousands of times per second," said Dennis Harvey of MTS Systems. "This provides the capability to measure, filter, analyze, and adjust rapidly to provide very precise motion or force actuation," he added.
