The newest Hyson T2 Mini Series spring, the T2-50 nitrogen gas spring is tiny, with a 12mm-diameter body and 6mm-diameter piston rod. It includes over-pressure protection and a two-step piston head for safety, and comes in stroke lengths from 7-125mm. It allows easy charging and discharging and gas spring hosing with an M6 charge valve. It can be ordered in color-coded pre-charged pressure ranges from 6500-2610 psi, and contact forces from 30-112 lb. Custom charge pressures are available between 300-2610 psi.
