The autonomous hydraulic compact drive
Energy efficiency and high positioning accuracy
Modern hydraulic compact drives, a union of hydraulics and electronics, are the combination of intelligence and power. This reduces installation and maintenance costs. And saves up to 80 % energy consumption by the axes.
The compact drive consists of a closed fluid circuit with cylinder, pump, control block and accumulator as well as the servomotor for the pump, the control unit with interface, and the sensors for monitoring pressure, temperature and travel. For integration in the closed fluid circuit of the compact drive, Balluff offers linear position sensors for reliable feedback to ensure high positioning accuracy. Also, Balluff offers compact intelligent sensors for pressure and temperature measurement. These report actual operating conditions and enable predictive maintenance. The data interfaces built into the drive – fieldbus, Ethernet, OPCUA or IO-Link – are used by the autonomous axis to communicate with the machine controller or directly to the cloud.
