Interface Elements

  • Guido Belforte
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 60)

Abstract

Interface elements are used as input and output elements in many fluidic systems. Generally speaking, input interface elements are necessary when input pulses are not fluidic. In this case we have non-fluidic sensors or we must transform another logic (say, electric, electronic,...) into a fluidic logic.
