MPC Multi-Position Cylinder
Series MPC: Another Great Innovation From SMC
cylinder offers an infinite number of adjustable stroke
positions for under $500.
In the past, an electric actuator was the only option for
applications demanding an infinite number of stroke positions.
SMC's MPC series now provides an alternative and
Offered as a pneumatic and lower cost alternative, the MPC
(Multi Position Cylinder) uses a 4~20mA or 0~10VDC input signal to
automatically adjust the actuator stroke. Once the MPC reaches the
desired position, it is pneumatically locked until the input signal
In order to accomplish this, the MPC utilizes an
integrated cylinder, solenoid Valve, linear Sensor, and
controller all in one unit. You need only to supply air and the
appropriate input signal. This easy adjustment makes the MPC
perfect for on the fly changes to your process.
