Sensors have become an increasingly common part of hydraulic, pneumatic and electric motion control systems, bringing a range of benefits from data collection to improved precision. As sensor technology has evolved and become more affordable over the years, its use has continued to grow.
The push toward greater levels of automation in both the mobile equipment and industrial machinery spaces are helping drive use of sensors even higher as they are a key component in enabling safe, accurate movements as well as visibility around a vehicle or machine.
Given their ever-increasing use in motion control systems and the technological advancements taking place, Power & Motion's coverage of sensors continues to grow.
And in February, we will be dedicating an entire week to the topic of sensors to help our audience further expand its understanding of these important components. Each day during the week of February 12 there will be new pieces of content published on our website which examine market trends, new technology developments and various uses cases for sensors within the fluid power and electric motion controls industry.
In addition, on Thursday, February 15 we will host a webinar entitled "Achieve Better Hydraulic System Maintenance with Oil Condition Monitoring" during which we will have a panel discussion with representatives from HydraForce, Tan Delta Systems and Elevāt to discuss how these companies worked together to integrate sensor technology and IoT (internet of things) into hydraulic systems to help improve maintenance.
How are You Using Sensors?
As part of our upcoming week of dedicated sensor coverage, we will be pulling together data on how those within the industry actually utilize this technology as well as where they see it going.
