Rota Engineering Announces New Linear Transducer Package

Rota Engineeringgs model LA is the latest release of Hall Effect technology linear transducer designed specifically for the mobile hydraulic cylinder market. The LA was designed to have the smallest footprint possible so that the critical pin to pin dimension of existing cylinders would not be required to change.

Rota Engineering is unique in the fact that they use Hall Effect sensors asone of their technologies for linear transducers, the other technology beingreed switches for unique applications. The brains of the linear transducerare the microprocessor which controls and receives signals to the surfacemounted Hall Effect chips, all of which are mounted on a PCB. The completedPCB with all the Hall Effect chips and microprocessor are then inserted intoa stainless steel or aluminum housing depending upon the customer'sapplication. A magnet, which is supplied with every linear transducer, causes a voltage drop when it passes over the Hall Effect chip. Themicroprocessor understands the position of the Hall Effect chip andcorrelates the voltage drop to a proportional voltage, current, PWM orCANBUS outputs.

Rota Engineering designs and manufactures linear transducers for tough applications where robustness is required. Transducers can be designed up to 54 feet in length, for use 20,000 feet below the surface of the ocean, for hazardous environments and has voltage, current, PWM and CANBUS output options.

Wherever cylinder position or monitoring is required, THINK ROTA!

Innas presents a powerful, efficient and clean hybrid hydraulic transmission

At the International Exposition for Power Transmission (IFPE 2008), March 11-15, 2008, Innas and NOAX will introduce the Hydrid', a hydraulic serial hybrid drive train in principle designed for passenger cars, but also applicable in off-road equipment. With this new design, the fuel consumption of a vehicle can be more than halved and a CO2 reduction of 50 % can be realised, without having to compromise on weight, size, traction or top speed.

We want our cars to be strong and fast. This requires large and powerful engines. The maximum performance of the engine is however seldom needed, and most of the time while driving in the city or cruising on the highwayy the engine is running at low loads. The high average fuel consumption of passenger cars is largely due to the low efficiency of combustion engines at these low loads. The Hydrid allows the engine to operate in its most efficient point reducing fuel consumption of a vehicle with 50%.

In a Hydrid, the complete mechanical drive train of a car is replaced by a full hydrostatic transmission, allowing energy recuperation and an efficient engine operation. The concept requires extremely efficient hydrostatic pumps, motors and transformers, based on the so-called Floating Cup principle, which have been developed recently.

The enabling Floating cup technology will be shown at the IFPE, in the Innas-NOAX booth nr. S-14738 (South Hall, second floor). Here you will see the Floating Cup technology, inlcuding the new variable Floating Cup pump.

At the IFPE congress, Peter Achten of Innas will be giving a lecture explaining the Hydraulic hybrid drive train. This presentation will take place on Thursday, March 13 at 1:30 PM. It is scheduled for in the Hybrid Systems session. Earlier that day, Georges Vael of Innas is giving a lecture about the Innas Flexible Seat Valve in the Hydraulic Valves session, at 10:00 AM.

New proportional flow control cartridge valves from Sauer-Danfoss

Sauer-Danfoss now offers a complete family of proportional flow control cartridge valves for mobile machinery.

AMES, IOWA, USA SAUER-DANFOSS INC. (NYSE:SHS) Sauer-Danfoss has expanded its family of proportional flow control cartridge valves to provide new sizes, including a smaller, more compact design that delivers higher pressure capabilities. The valves work in conjunction with hydraulic integrated circuits (HICs) to regulate the fluid flow that controls specific equipment operations. For mobile machinery OEMs, the new valves mean precise control and smooth manipulation of everything from combine headers to forklifts to lawnmowers.

We fully met our goals for this product expansion, which included cavity standardization, higher pressure capability and extended use of robust coils,, said Darren Magner, Product Portfolio Manager, Sauer-Danfoss, Ames, USA. With the addition of these new valves, Sauer-Danfoss now offers the most complete portfolio of proportional flow controls, and our maximum flow capacity is among the best available. The valves are also PLUS+1TM Compliant for easy electronic interface with Sauer-Danfosss growing PLUS+1 control network for mobile machinery..

Compact Size, Optimum Control, Higher Pressure and Flow
With this product extension, Sauer-Danfoss now offers proportional flow control cartridge valves in three standard cavity sizes 10, 12 and a new 16 series providing a broad range of new and modified flow rates. The proportional flow valves are available in eight different schemes, consisting of NOO (normally opened) and NCC (normally closed) options in the following valve types: 1) priority pressure compensated, 2) restrictive pressure compensated, 3) restrictive spool (non-compensated), and 4) restrictive poppet (non-compensated).

The proportional valves regulate equipment operations by controlling the flow entering or leaving circuits. For example, to keep a combine header in place, the restrictive poppet valve is used. This valve, which now includes new 12 series and 16 series options, minimizes slip to a negligible amount so a farmer can put a combine header in a raised position and can count on it to stay there.

Designed for Harsh Off-Highway Environments
All of Sauer-Danfosss proportional flow control cartridge valves come standard with robust coils (M19P and D14E), which are more tolerant of adverse conditions ranging from voltage extremes to high temperatures to water ingression. The coils have been rigorously tested and carry an IP69K environmental protection rating. The pressure capability of the proportional flow control cartridge valves is 260 bar, or 3770 psi; and maximum flow rates are 120 LPM, or 32 GPM.

Sauer-Danfosss portfolio of proportional flow control cartridge valves and robust coils meet the most stringent requirements of major OEMs. The valves provide precision control of machine operations, and the robust coils ultimately extend equipment life even in harsh off-highway environments,, said Magner.

Sauer-Danfoss Inc. is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and sale of engineered hydraulic, electric and electronic systems and components, for use primarily in applications of mobile equipment. Sauer-Danfoss, with approximately 9,000 employees worldwide and revenue of more than $1.7 billion, has sales, manufacturing and engineering capabilities in Europe, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region. The Companyys executive offices are located near Chicago in Lincolnshire, Illinois and in Neummnster, Germany. More details online at
