  • Taking the Guesswork Out of Pneumatic Control
    a function actuate twice during a sequence. A shuttle valve to the pilot of a power valve lets a function actuate twice during a sequence. Back-pressure sensing indicates cylinder position without limit valves. Designers have several options when constructing pneumatic-control systems. But modular air-logic
  • Application Considerations: Pneumatic or Electric Brakes & Clu
    What are the main differences between pneumatic brake and clutch assemblies versus electric brake and clutch assemblies? Pneumatic clutches and brakes use air cylinders to actuate and provide the normal force to transmit torque. They require 30-80 PSI of a clean compressed air...
  • Simpler controls lead to lower-cost pneumatics
    photoelectric detection and sorting operations, DeviceNet systems are often too slow. Distributed control that does not rely on network connections to resolve logic provides an ideal solution. It can significantly reduce the time required to process sensor inputs and actuate pneumatic cylinders
  • Industrial automation without wires
    Bluetooth technology enables wireless control and sensing. Parker's Bluetooth demonstrator highlights wireless capabilities. With a Hewlett-Packard personal digital assistant, users can select, program, and actuate either a Moduflex pneumatic control-valve bank driving a series of cylinders
  • Clutches
    would result in too much wear and maintenance. Clutches rely on mechanical or electromagnetic action for torque transmission. However, they are usually identified by their mode of actuation: mechanical, electrical, pneumatic, or hydraulic. Although the four operating modes are considered highly
