Oscillating Hydraulic Mechanism

This example shows an oscillating hydraulic mechanism that consists of a single-acting hydraulic rotary actuator, winch, flow control valve, two-position electro-hydraulic valve, and power and control units. The mechanism maintains oscillating vertical motion of the weight by raising it to 25 cm and then allowing it to fall. To raise the weight, the electro-hydraulic valve is energized and connects the power unit to the hydraulic actuator inlet. As the weight reaches 25 cm, the valve is deenergized, connecting the actuator chamber to tank.

To start or stop oscillations, double-click the Manual Switch.
