Salut Encore!

Est-ce que les cylindres hydrauliques inclus avec un actionneurs sont acceptables? Le livret des règles adresse les pneumatiques, mais pas les hydrauliques.

Si les cylindres hydrauliques et/ou d'autres hydrauliques sont permises auront-il des restrictions / des règles et des directives qu'il va falloir suivre?

Hello again!

Are hydraulic cylinders that included actuators legal for the competition? The rule book only addresses pneumatics and includes no mention of hydraulics.

If hydraulic cylinders and/or other types of hydraulics are permitted will there be restrictions/ rules and specifications we must adhere to?

Bonjour Alex,

Les composantes hydrauliques sont interdites. Il existe de nombreux actuateurs linéaires dont le mécanisme de transmission rotatif-->linéaire est strictement mécanique et "sec".

Also, don't forget that an off-the-shelf linear actuator contains a rotative electric motor. A mechanical system (considered as a gearbox) then transform this rotative movement to a linear one. If  the motor part of the actuator you bought is not one of the legal motor type listed in 3.2.02 or 3.3.05 (or replaced by one), it is deemed illegal.

Hope this helps,
