FLUID POWER: Fairchild Industrial Products Co.’s new Model M4800 pneumatic volume booster is designed for ultra high flow requirements, having a flow capacity of 500 SCFM and a Cv of 9 in both forward and exhaust modes. The M4800 standard configuration delivers better than 0.5 percent accuracy and is recommended for demanding applications such as hyperbaric chambers, industrial automation systems and tire manufacturing machinery, as well as for use in very low pressure systems operating at 5 psi or less where much higher output flow is desirable, such as tank blanketing, research or process control situations. The available M4800 “I” designated bypass option allows the user to adjust output gain and damping during actual operation for optimum system performance. This option is designed for valve positioners and other valve actuation mechanisms to deliver rapid response in conjunction with very sensitive control devices, such as feed and bleed solenoids. The M4800 unit is compatible with compressed air, natural gas and many other media and offers top performance in an economical package. Fairchild’s QUICKSHIPTM fast delivery of the M4800 enables engineers to easily obtain this high performance booster to complete design and installation of automated systems much faster.
One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicleís parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
Most of us would just as soon step on a cockroach rather than study it, but thatís just what researchers at UC Berkeley did in the pursuit of building small, nimble robots suitable for disaster-recovery and search-and-rescue missions.
