The DDL Series of double-diaphragm oilless linear pumps include 230V models suitable for use where higher voltages are required. Other versions include lower-voltage ac models and a 12V dc unit. UL listings are certified for 15 models in the line. The models in this series of compressors and vacuum pumps offer a spectrum of air flow and pressure/vacuum capabilities. Free air flow can be as low as 0.39 cfm or as high as 8.6 cfm with pressure to 10.5 psi and vacuum to 12.1 inches Hg.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
