Single-acting cylinders and double-acting cylinders are common types of cylinders.

    Pneumatic and Electric Butterfly Valve: What are their differences?

    There is no difference between the butterfly valves themselves, the difference lies in their respective actuators and the applicable working conditions affected by the actuators. Among them, butterfly valves can be divided into pneumatic butterfly valves and electric butterfly valves, both of which are widely used in the market. These two butterfly valves are easily confused because of the difference in driving energy. This kind of valve with structural similarity is more likely to be confused in procurement and use, so buyers need to fully grasp the principles and advantages of the two. Here is a detailed introduction to the difference between them. Let's take a look.

    Managed vs Unmanaged Industrial Switch: What are Their Difference?

    The industrial Ethernet has been wildly used in daily life. As an important component of the network, industrial switches play an important role in current industrial automation. Industrial field switches can be divided into two categories: unmanaged and managed. General device internal network, such as CPU. Unmanaged switches are used for data exchange between distributed modules; managed switches are used for communication between devices and the factory network. They all belong to the industrial ethernet switches. So, what is the difference between an unmanaged switch and a managed switch? Today we will talk about this topic.

    Difference between Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

    Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are two different instruments, and they have obvious differences in nature. Next, we will provide you with detailed information to explain their differences in different aspects.

    Explosion Proof Solenoid Valve vs. General Solenoid Valve

    Solenoid valve is a kind of industrial equipment controlled by solenoid. It is a basic component for automatically controlling fluid. It belongs to the actuator, not limited to hydraulic and pneumatic. The solenoid valve can cooperate with different circuits to complete the expected control, ensuring the accuracy and flexibility of the control. There are many kinds of solenoid valves, different solenoid valves have different functions. In this article, ATO industrial automation will give you a comparison of explosion proof solenoid valve and general solenoid valve.

    Difference between Gyroscope and Accelerometer

    The accelerometer is one of the basic measurement elements of inertial navigation and guidance systems. In other words, the accelerometer is an oscillating system installed inside the motion carrier to measure the motion acceleration of the carrier. The gyroscope is called an angular velocity sensor, which is different from an accelerometer. The physical quantity it measures is deflection and tilt rotational angle speed. Many of us often hear the term accelerometer sensor and gyroscope sensor, but what is the difference between them?With these questions, ATO will introduce them to you.

    Difference between Electric Ball Valve and Pneumatic Ball Valve
