Rotational hydraulic actuators, i.e. motors, provide infinite stroke as there is no conceptual
limit how far they can turn. In contrary linear hydraulic actuators like cylinders provide only
limited stroke by concept. In the world of electrical drives linear motors provide infinite
stroke also for linear motion. In hydraulics the presented Hydraulic Infinite Linear Actuator
is a novelty.
This paper presents the novel Hydraulic Infinite Linear Actuator (HILA). The contribution
is an assessment of properties relevant for control and is based on analysis, simulation
and measurements.
