Digital Displacement® industrial hydraulics
Digital Displacement® technology is a natively digital hydraulic innovation. It utilizes a radial piston machine which enables and disables cylinders in real time, using ultra-fast mechatronic valves.
We are the number one system provider across various applications
We are experts in digital industrial hydraulics
These intelligent, digital controls mean a digitally-enabled machine is highly controllable and extremely efficient. The net result is:
- Radically lower energy losses (typically less than a third of swashplate machines)
- Dramatically faster response (typically ten times faster)
- Reduction of annoying, high-frequency noise
Digital Displacement® pump
Our Digital Displacement® hydraulics is a fundamental innovation. It utilizes a radial piston machine which enables cylinders in real time, using ultra-fast mechatronic valves controlled by an embedded, intelligent computer. This makes our pump highly controllable and extremely efficient. The result is lower energy losses, increased productivity and faster response time.
Traditional Hydraulics. The time for change has arrived
Suitable for diesel, hybrid or electric machines this unique fully patented technology has been in development for over a decade and can be easily integrated into all standard machines.
Traditional hydraulic systems in today’s excavators are notoriously inefficient, wasting as much as 70 percent of the engine’s power before it reaches the bucket.
A Perfect Match
The switch of construction equipment to electrification is nowadays predominantly driven by regional zero emission regulations put in place by local governments. At the same time, there is an ever-increasing interest and commitment from key market players to move towards low and preferably zero emission solutions. However, the challenges in mass adopting the existing solutions are the large capital investment in batteries, the charging infrastructure and the limited operating range.
Retrofitting an iconic Finnish ferry
For retrofitting the iconic Finnish ferry - Prostvik, Danfoss Editron introduced its new direct current-link solution, consisting of a compact and lightweight diesel-electrical drivetrain. The main benefits of installing a diesel-electric system are significantly reducing the ferry’s environmental footprint, as well as achieving redundancy.
Zero-emission construction with Danfoss Editron and Digital Displacement®Friday, May 14, 2021
By combining Danfoss Editron's industry-leading electric drivetrain systems with our innovative Digital Displacement® pump technology, we make electrification a commercially viable option for construction machinery and help the industry significantly reduce its CO2 emissions footprint.
Digital Displacement paves the way for an off-highway revolutionThursday, November 5, 2020
From lab to market: Danfoss Digital Displacement technology is now being launched to cut fuel consumption in excavators by staggering numbers. This will have a global impact as we can save 40 million tons of CO2 – the energy use of 4.6 million homes for one year – by reducing waste heat in excavators.
