## Parker Gold Cup IE (Intelligence Enabled)

Parker Gold Cup IE

Parker introduced Gold Cup – IE (Intelligence Enabled) pump.

In general, this is just the new option “E” at the secondary control option for the “9A” electro-hydraulic stroker as the primary control. This option combines the robust design of Gold Cup pump technology with the intelligence of operational sensors and analytics.

Example model number:

P11P3R1C9AEB00

In my opinion, this option is not for every application, because most sensors are not required for regular tasks. But probably there are exist some sensitive applications where all components should be monitored in real-time (where the high cost of downtime) for detecting failure before it occurs.
