  • Closed-Loop Pneumatic Control In A Compact Package
    A newly developed pneumatic-control system provides an alternative to electrical or electromechanical motion control. The Pneumatic Control System (PCS) is a compact electronic controller with pneumatic valves that accurately positions an actuator rod or rotating shaft and holds it in position even
  • Servopneumatics offers reliable, economical motion
    Advances in controls and networks combined with components that pack more punch have opened the door to more-precise, durable, and economical pneumatic systems. When it comes to motion control, conventional thinking usually produces designs with electromechanical drives and computer-controlled
  • Integrate and simplify
    and PCbased programming software. Integrated motion control using servomotors lets this filling machine achieve rates of 150 cans/min, higher than the 120 cans/ min attainable with pneumatic controls. Manufacturers are under constant pressure to increase machine throughput and flexibility. That might
  • The good stuff may cost less
    hydraulic control, or flexible control of servoelectric, hydraulic, and pneumatic systems. In these cases, a full-featured motion controller is key to best performance. It is unlikely that a one-stop-shopping automation supplier has a motion controller up to the task. Even in simple applications
  • Controlling high-performance electrohydraulics
    Getting the most out of PID systems is the key to precise hydraulic motion control. High-performance hydraulic motion controllers like the Delta RMC100 often receive cylinder-position data from magnetostrictive displacement transducers (MDTs), such as this unit from Balluff, Florence, Ky. Unlike
  • Sorting out servopneumatics
    . Pneumatic systems control motion much like electric drives, starting and stopping anywhere within the actuator's range. They require a sophisticated controller and fast-acting proportional valve.
  • Basic Types
    a discussion of the various control options that are widely used. These include simple timers and counters, chip-level and board-level computers, programmable logic controllers, and pneumatic sequencers. Industrial motion control can be divided into four categories: sequencing, speed control, point
  • Filling On The Fly
    The Allen-Bradley 1394 digital servo controller is a position controller integrated within a modular, digital AC servo drive, providing a single, compact, motion-control package. Machine builders clearly understand that their customers' requests are thinly veiled demands. Either the builder meets
