These cylinders now have an electronic position-sensing option for almost all models, including bores to 10 inches (25.4 mm), strokes to 15 feet (4.57m), and working pressures to 10,000 psig (690 bar). Depending on cylinder stroke length and other design parameters, positioning accuracy is +/- .005 inches(.13 mm) or better.
