Electromechanical Switch Endurance

If you're an engineer concerned about the reliability of your switch in a hostile, demanding operational environment, then you're worried about electromechanical switch endurance. In applications like limit switches, safety interlock switches, door open/close switches, and many others, failure of the


Applying Smart Hydraulic Cylinders

What is a Smart (Hydraulic) Cylinder?

Smart hydraulic cylinders gain their name from the fact that highly accurate position sensing electronics are integrated with the hydraulics in a single actuator.  Thus these cylinders are “smart” about understanding cylinder position allowing robust position information to be fed
