Pressure Analysis of Remotely Operated Water Hydraulics Actuator (ROWHA)
Keywords:water hydraulics actuator, pressure analysis
This study proposes a development of remotely operated water hydraulic actuator (ROWHA) for industrial application. The safe, hygienic and low maintenance cost characteristics of water should provide interesting viewpoints due to concern over issues in hydraulic fluid disposal, flammability, and costly maintenance. An experiment is conducted on the remotely operated water hydraulic actuator by moving variable load up to 5 kg. The result of the remote operation of extension and retraction of the load is presented. A PS2 wireless controller is use to act as remote control for this system. Experimental result of ROWHA show same pattern of result where pressure during extension is lower than retraction.
