Monitored Hydraulic Valves

Machine safety is not limited to high-technology devices that are painted yellow, it does and should cover all aspects of a machine.  Knowing the state of your actuators is critical for safe machine control schemes, and monitored hydraulic valves are a key component when dealing with hydraulic systems.  Sensors are built into the valve body to directly monitor the spool position, allowing your controls to confirm that the valve has shifted to the correct position when a command signal is given.  Tec-Hackett specialists can discuss with you the application and usage of monitored hydraulic valves from Continental Hydraulics and other suppliers.

Compressed air systems have their own unique challenges when considering safe operation.  IMI Norgren offers the long-proven Herion line of products, designed for safe control and monitoring of the pneumatic portion of your machine.
