As the Pneumatic Product Manager for the Cross Company Automation Group, I have had numerous discussions with machine builders about ways to locate pneumatic valves on their equipment to optimize performance. Often, I find that these machine builders are under the impression that the pneumatic valves must be centrally located on one manifold.
As the Pneumatic Product Manager for the Cross Company Automation Group, I have had numerous discussions with machine builders about their frustrations with commissioning fieldbus valve manifolds and trouble-shooting problems after they are up and running. They tell me about lugging their laptop computers around to connect to each communication node.
Mobile Systems Create Unique Reservoir Design Challenges
Due to space and weight constraints in most mobile systems, traditional reservoir design “rules of thumb” - such as sizing reservoir volume at 3x pu
When sizing a motion control system, it is necessary to know how much torque the application needs at a speed rather than the overall power requirement. In this video, I explain and show an example of two brushless motor solutions that offer the same amount of power output, but are two different solutions.
We have seen an increase in the number of customers looking for complete cooling solutions for their mobile equipment lately. In this video I discuss one solution we provided to an OEM customer who was looking to provide engine cooling for a newly selected Tier 4 engine.
