The eight position cylinder is a medium duty pneumatic positioning device that operates through eight pre-determined positions of 3/8” (9.5 mm) increments with a total stroke length of 2-5/8” (66.7 mm). Although it was primarily designed for power-shift transmissions, it may also be utilized for indexing and any other application where fixed stroke increments are required.
The ideal companion valve for the cylinder is AVENTICS “P” Rotair® eight position valve. An alternative control is an electro-pneumatic switching circuit using 3-way solenoid valves. The cylinder is extremely rugged, having anodized, corrosion-resistant, lightweight aluminum body, pistons and piston stops. Seals are a Teflon coated nitrile compound.
