Position Feedback with Rod Lock

Bimba Position Feedback cylinders with rod locks are used as a failsafe in the event of power loss. When pressure is present, the piston actuates and a dowel pin follows a cam to the open position, allowing the piston rod to travel freely through clamp.  In absence of pressure, the spring actuates the piston, the dowel follows to the closed position, activating the rod clamp.
