Mode of operation

  • Compressed air is guided into a cylinder.
  • The compressed air displaces the piston in the cylinder
  • A linear position encoder is installed parallel to the cylinder, and pressure sensors are installed in the two proportional valve chambers.
  • The position of the piston can be controlled using the position encoder and the pressure sensors.
  • This is how positioning tasks can also be carried out using pneumatics.
