NFPA Welcomes New Member: Project Phoenix

Project Phoenix is proud to introduce its Independent Electrohydraulic System (IES), a servo-driven, drive-drive hydraulic gear pump. IES allows for the precise synchronization of an infinite number of IES using sophisticated motion control and algorithms. Its algorithms provide early-warning alerts relating, most significantly, to mechanical gear-teeth wear and system contamination.

IES provides 15x better servo response than today’s hydraulics systems. IES will transform today’s direct-drive, servo-driven hydraulic systems. IES is being brought to market by Project Phoenix, which was formed in 2014 as a research and development skunkworks project of Empire Southwest, one of the largest Caterpillar dealers in the world. Project Phoenix now holds dozens of granted domestic and international patents on its new IES technology.
