Greetings, My team is currently working on the design of a mechanical arm to be attached to the frame of the ROV, and want to have the entire hydraulic system onboard. The issue we are facing is that there will be two arm with each requiring 4 double-acting cylinders, and two solenoids per cylinder used, coming to a total of 16 solenoids. Is there any way to possibly reduce this number or possibly another hydraulic configuration?
