Position-Feedback Cylinders

The PFA Series are economical pneumatic linear actuators with internal linearresistive transducers (LRT) for accurate piston-position sensing.

They are said to be ideal for applications that cannot use traditional magnetic-position sensing, or require variations in cylinder stroke and speed or continuous position monitoring. Bore sizes range from 11/16 to 3 in. and strokes to 18 in. The actuators are designed for piston speeds up to 50 ips. Digital displays include smart programmable meters and digital bar graphs with fully programmable setpoints and optional relays for monitoring, measurement, and control applications.
