Smart Power Unit
The Smart Power Unit is the first generation of Programmable Digital Hydraulic Power Pack available on the market. The core of the Smart Power Unit is the HPC (Hydraulic Process Controller): a Mechatronic Module which integrates Sensors, Electronics and Hydraulics in a single device.
Programmable with CodesysTM IEC61131-3 automation software
The core of the SPU is the HPC (Hydraulic Process Controller): a programmable controller with SAFETY Architecture. It integrates I/O, sensors, double core processors to enable SAFETY features, power Output in order to directly drive solenoid operated proportional or on-off valves without the need of external relays.
The Hydraulic Process Computer is integrated in the power pack and available in different executions: P/Q proportional control and LS functionality.
The HPC is perfectly integrated with the standard Hydronit Compact Pack range since it can use same PPC components.
Hydraulic circuits are availble with redundant valves in order to match mechanics to electronics and offer a SAFETY RELATED mechatronic power pack ready for Industry 4.0 and Smart Manufacturing.
BUILT IN SENSORS
The Hydraulic Process Computer integrates fluid sensors: one ceramic Pressure sensor reading the LS line, up to 350 bar.
An oil temperature sensor completes the fluid monitoring. Additional external sensors can be need through the I/O lines.
Sensors are embedded in the mechanic body and are available as a variable in the software programming environment.
Hydronit directly competing against European most innovative companies, has been awarded with multiple Seals of Excellence by the European Commission during Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
In July 2017 it has been granted by EU Commission as project 779020 The Smart Power Unit is patented.
