Smart Sensing Hydraulic Cylinder Solutions

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   October 20, 2020 08:00

RAM Industries is attentive to how technological advancements in fluid power is increasing demand for automated control and functionality in mobile hydraulic applications. The use of hydraulic cylinders equipped with position sensors is becoming increasingly popular in a wide range of industries, from lighter duty agricultural applications, to heavy duty construction and mining equipment.

Referred to by different names such as: electronic position-sensing, electro-hydraulic control, intelligent cylinders and smart cylinders; this technology utilizes linear transducers (sensors) to communicate a cylinder’s piston position back to the overall hydraulic system.

There are numerous advantages of incorporating smart sensors into hydraulic cylinders used on mobile equipment.

• Road construction equipment is enabled to automatically adjust grader equipment to the precise ground profile required, as well as control the depth of a cut on a scraper.

• Agriculture applications benefit from uniformity that is provided through maintaining a constant height level on boom sprayers or combines and swathers. Uniformity is also achieved through controlling depth of placement in seeding equipment.

• GPS controlled steering ensures equipment maintains a very straight line, and maintain an exact distance from the last pass. This minimizes overlap or miss which results in greater efficiencies.

• Many lifting applications benefit from this position sensing technology through bucket position control. When raising the lift structure, there is a leveling effect that automatically adjusts the tilt, while providing increased height control.

• Gate sensing applications automatically adjust the gate height for the output of materials such as salt or sand in road maintenance. The sensors provide feedback on the output based on factors, such as speed of the vehicle, to support more consistent output.

• Sensors help ensure equipment such as cranes or trailers are level. This is helpful to confirm the equipment is stabilized. In addition, position sensors can communicate to the operator when it is safe to move only when stabilizers or outriggers are disengaged.

• Further developments in this technology equip some applications with a “home button” that enables the equipment to return to default positioning. 

An added benefit of smart sensing hydraulic cylinders is preventing operator fatigue. The operator is able to focus on running the equipment rather than manually reviewing and adjusting various settings of the equipment. Use smart sensing hydraulic cylinders on your equipment as a competitive advantage!

RAM understands the high demands placed on hydraulic cylinder performance in mobile applications. The assessment of your equipment's operating environment is important, as RAM’s expertise is in supplying cylinders that are specifically engineered for your application.

All of RAM’s hydraulic cylinders are manufactured using high quality materials that are selected specific to the applications in which they will be used. In environments where there are temperature extremes or high corrosion conditions, specialized materials such as nitride rods and high or low temp seals can be utilized. Custom rod bellows are available to protect cylinders from chips, grit, dust and other abrasive particles.

RAM smart sensor hydraulic cylinders incorporate position sensing technologies for OEM equipment in any RAM single stage hydraulic cylinder. As a custom hydraulic cylinder manufacturer, RAM Industries has the expertise designing and manufacturing smart sensing hydraulic cylinders with a variety of digital and analogue outputs. External or internal sensors can be incorporated depending on the use of the cylinders. An assortment of bore sizes, stroke lengths, and mounting options can be configured to meet your overall design and industry needs.
