The TD (transducer) Option position feedback sensor offers an internal Linear Resistive Transducer (LRT) for extremely accurate piston position sensing. It’s designed for applications where magnetic Reed and Hall effect switches are unacceptable. The TD Option provides a solution for applications where variations in cylinder stroke and speed are required. Available with bore sizes ranging from 1-1/8″ to 4″ and strokes lengths of up to 18″ this position feedback sensor is reportedly ideal for applications requiring real-time position monitoring.
The TDH and TDP standard cylinder constructions differ depending on bore size. For instance, 1-1/8” and 1-1/2” bore sizes have an aluminum threaded rear head and an aluminum snap-ring front head. The 2” thru 4” bores come with a traditional snap-ring construction both front and rear. All bore sizes utilize stainless steel cylinder tubing with the exception of the 4” bore which use heavy wall brass tubing.
Type “C” cylinders are constructed using low friction “U” cup seals and include a wear strip on the piston. These cylinders are primarily used in low pressure applications and where low-minimum breakaway is required.
Pressure Rating: 120 PSI (pneumatic only)
Breakaway: Approximately 2 to 3 PSI
Available Bore Sizes: 1-1/8”, 1-1/2”, 2”, 2-1/2”, 3” & 4”
TDH cylinders are constructed using Block-Vee seals and include double rod seals in the front head, except on the 1-1/8” bore. A heavy duty wear strip (bearing) on the piston minimizes friction and piston seal wear, and on side load conditions
reduces metal-to-metal contact. .
Pressure Rating: 200 PSI pneumatic or 500 PSI hydraulic
Breakaway: Approximately 10 to 15 PSI
Available Bore Sizes: 1-1/8”, 1-1/2”, 2”, 2-1/2”, 3”, 4”, and 5”
