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 to more complex feedback systems.
