In the late 1990's engineers from Daikin Industries Ltd, the largest air conditioning manufacturer in the world, had an idea. What if their HVAC hybrid energy inverter technology could be used on oil hydraulics to create a more efficient method of hydraulic power?

Lengthy tests and specifications followed and soon Daikin's top engineers had designed a hybrid hydraulic unit that challenged the conventional hydraulic status quo; a unit so advanced that it could reduce footprint, oil waste, heat, and energy costs while retaining the capability to be a drop-in replacement for 80% of traditional hydraulic systems.

This marked the arrival of the future of hybrid technology.
