What is CytroPac?


The CytroPac is a hydraulic power unit that is small in size, but big in power. Its design is flexible and can be customized, making it a smart addition to any industry utilizing hydraulic power.

Imagine having a Swiss Army knife of hydraulic systems. That's the CytroPac! It features four pump displacements and four motor power options that are customizable to your specific application. This means you can adjust it to suit your particular needs. You no longer have to worry about having too little or too much power. Instead, everything is just right. 

What Does CytroPac Do?

CytroPac simplifies power transmission with its compact size, minimizing downtime and installation. It's perfect for limited-space environments or retrofitting existing equipment. Plus, it's energy-efficient and low-noise, making it a smart and eco-friendly choice. Watch the video below to learn more about a CytroPac success story



What Key Features Set the CytroPac Apart?

Let's dive into some of its standout features and benefits:


Smart Control Options

Not all jobs are created equal. Some are simple and require straightforward control, while others demand complex maneuvering and adjustments. The CytroPac is ready for both scenarios. With a Basic and Premium unit, you can choose the level of control that best suits your needs. 

The Basic unit allows control through simple digital I/O, providing start and stop functions, four pressure, and two motor speed setpoints. 

The Premium unit allows access to all control parameters through the Multi-Ethernet interface, allowing for greater control and feedback from the CytroPac unit. The Multi-Ehternet allows communication over Ethernet/IP, Modbus/TCP, Sercos III, PROFINET, and EtherCAT. This ensures compatibility with a wide variety of machine controllers.

Ready for the North American Market

Businesses operating in America and Canada, listen up! The CytroPac is built for your market, with certain units meeting UL-approved safety standards; for example, these units have a steel hood and a UL-approved power connector with a 5m line included in the scope of delivery. All you need to do is search the file number E492120 in the UL database to get all the details.


Say Goodbye to Overheating

Heat management is a problem in hydraulic systems, taking up valuable floor space and adding complexity to the system. Not with the CytroPac! Its optional cooler attaches to the bottom of the CytroPac and gets tied into the 24vdc control power, efficiently using the existing CytroPac footprint. It smoothly integrates with the base unit and helps dissipate heat up to 1.2kW

Top-tier Safety with STO Function

Safety is the number one priority in any industry. That's why a Safe Torque Off (STO) function can be added to the Cytro Pac to reach safety levels up to Cat. 4/Ple or SIL3. This feature stops unexpected motor movements during emergencies, providing you with peace of mind.
