The output signal from a feedback element.
Loop: Any closed circuit consisting of one or more feedback
elements which transmit a signal to a summation point.
A device used to separate and retain insoluble contaminants
from a fluid.
A condition where the pump inlet is charged by placing the reservoir
oil level above the pup inlet port.
Control Valve: The volume, mass, or weight of a fluid passing
through any conductor per unit of time.
push or pull measured in units of weight. In hydraulics, total force
is expressed by the product of pressure ( force per unit area) and
the area of the surface on which the pressure acts (F=P * A).
Factor: The ratio of the RMS value of a harmonic signal to its
average value in one half wave.
Quadrant: Refers to a motion system which can operate in all
four quadrants i.e. velocity in either direction and torque in either
direction. This means that the motor can accelerate, run and decelerate
in either direction.
number of times an action occurs in a unit of time.
A resistance to motion, Friction can be constant with varying
speed (Coulomb friction) or proportional to speed (viscous friction).
a filter, the condition where all the fluid must pass through the
filter element or media.
