Open Source Recipricating Hydraulic Motor

From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search


- An engine that uses hydraulic fluid and a series of pistons to produce rotary motion

- Works more like an Recipricating Interal Combustion Engine, as opposed to the more turbine like Open Source Hydraulic Motor

Used For

- Hydraulic Vehicles and tools

Industry Standards


Existing Open Source Designs


Minimum Viable Product

- Cheap to Produce

- All DIY componets (as it is just cylenders, valves and tubing)

- Modular

- Scaleable

Basic Design


- Allows Pistons to be mounted in an organized way and keeps everything neat + gives it structure


- Diy Hydraulic Pistons

Hydraulic In Manifold

- Takes the hydraulic in flow(s), and switches it between the pistons

Hydraulic Out Manifold

- Takes the hydraulic out flow(s), and switches it between the pistons


- A arduino with a custom solenoid controller sheild (Via OCI)

- Should also allow for IO
