As electrification progresses, there is a lot of information to weed through in order to determine the best way to electrify mobile equipment systems. Identifying the right combination of products helps to ensure increased efficiency, quieter operation, a more compact footprint, lower total cost of ownership, increased reliability, a longer lifetime and an optimized speed range.

Integration of electrically driven pumps, referred to as ePumps, is becoming more common in electric-powered machines. As such, it is important for engineers to understand the unique characteristics of these pumps to ensure optimized system and overall machine performance.  

In this QuickChat, Rob Lorance, engineering and business development manager at Parker Hannifin, peaks with Bob Vavra, Senior Content Director of Power & Motion and its affiliate publication Machine Design, about the key information engineers need to know when transitioning from internal combustion engines (ICE) to ePumps.
