As an Engineering leader, HYDAC offers a multitude of products and solutions that can be integrated into new machines and systems in the context of IoT (Internet of Things). Using our system and product knowledge as a basis, HYDAC offers smart solutions that can be used to increase both the efficiency and availability of machines and installations. An example:
HYDAC offers a multitude of filter contamination devices for monitoring filter life. One of these solutions is based on the HPT differential pressure transducer from HYDAC Electronic Division. The HPT500 provides a Delta P measured value from the filter to the controller via IO-Link, (a standardized interface which creates a bridge between the sensor/actuator level and the machine controller), proportional to the filter contamination. This also makes it possible to identify whether a filter element has been installed in the first place – in other words, it makes it possible to identify whether the machine is being operated under the specified conditions. Using additional machine data, HYDAC has also developed an algorithm that enables the prediction of a filter’s remaining life.
This projection is implemented in the machine controller in the form of a software program. Both the availability and the overall lifetime of machines and systems can be increased with this solution.
HYDAC was founded in 1963 as a company producing hydraulic accumulators and filters. Today, we are internationally active with 9000+ employees, 30+ manufacturing locations and 500 trade and service partners throughout the globe.
Our fluid engineering solutions are defined by the scope and complexity of our customers’ requirements.
Our products range from individually designed components in the fields of fluid engineering, hydraulics and electronics right up to complete systems for specific functions.
All components and systems are conceived and designed in-house. Experienced industrial and product specialists develop innovative products and efficient solutions for high-quality, cost-effective production. Our production facilities share one common goal; quality. We take pride in both our products and solutions.
