VP- and MP-Series Electric Cylinders

Our Bulletin VPAR and MPAR electric cylinders provide an integrated solution with dynamic, precise response for a wide range of linear motion applications. These cylinders use RSLogix 5000 software to extend and retract with highly repeatable positioning, velocity, and force. Industry standard mountings and rod-end attachments help simplify your assembly and reduce mechanical design engineering, wiring, and commissioning time.
