First of all, this is my first project that requires hydraulic motion.
I have been searching the internet for this topic and kept getting back to Delta Motion and articles written by Peter Nachtwey, so I thought here would be a good place to start.
We are currently working on a project where we need to control 6 hydraulic cylinders, where 2 cylinders will act as 1 axis (master/slave). All cylinders has quadrature feedback.
My problem is however that there is only 2 control valves for all 6 cylinders (one for the master and one for the slave). This limits control to 1 master/slave at a time, which is no problem, but I would really appreciate some help selecting the hardware when they share the same control output and/or maybe some tips.
I will just say that this is an old 20 year old machine and our customer does not want to update the hydraulics, as it was recently shined up.
Forgot to mention that I tried downloading the programming software and it does not seem to be possible the configure axes with the same control output.
