The mechanical position indicator makes the stroke measurement easy and clearly controllable. The greatest advantage of this system is the easy treatment regarding assembly and backfitting.
The mechanical position indicator is mounted outside on the cylinder body. The indication is given by a scaled acryl tube whereupon the setting is shown over a niro-stick which is connected to the piston rod. This simple setting can be created according to customers wishes. The final position, and if required the interim position, can be configured via a limit switch. The mechanical position indicator can optional also be combined with a integrated electronic measuring system (dipstick) which is integrated into the control. This easy variation of a position measuring system is most often used in the area of civil engineering, but can in principle be used for every hydraulic cylinder.
