In addition, the company is a major supplier of custom designed solenoids (SRE) and servovalves ( Atchley Controls), and has been reported to be developing an excitation source for use in seismic surveys.
Modeling of a pneumatic actuator through long pneumatic lines for teleoperation purpose
In this work, two proportional servovalves Atchley .
Modeling, identification, and control of a pneumatically actuated, force controllable robot
 R. Atchley , Servovalve Model 211APN, Typical Performance Specifica-
Oil hydraulic system
Outside low dirt sensitivity, the higher driving pressure yield brings a lesser method of construction with itself (e.g., jet-Pipe servovalves , Atchley of Controls ).
Design and control of an autonomous bendable tip for colonoscopy
To control the various pressures in the bellows, we used three ATCHLEY Jet-pipe servovalves .
Modeling tool for design and simulation of complex mechanical systems
An Atchley jet-pipe servovalve , model 21 1A, under proportional integral control with a
Yates hydraulic cylinder was modeled.
