'A' position has the ports at 90 degrees to the pin.
'B' position has the ports in line with the pins.
|Base||The fixed end of the cylinder.|
|Bore||The internal diameter of the hydraulic cylinder.|
|Clevis||U shaped coupling, with pin holes, intended to accept a male mount in the gap.|
|Closed length||The distance measured between two fixed points, on the the tube, and the rod when the rod is fully retracted.|
|Duty cycle||The expected frequency of operation of the cylinder.|
|Gland||Supports the rod and deals the cylinder at the rod end.|
|Open Length||The distance measured between two fixed points, on the the thub, and the rod whent he rod is fully extended.|
|Phasing||Phasing, or re-phasing cylinders are designed to enable a set of cylinders to be connected in series, and achieve equal rod extension, or retraction across all the cylinders in the set.|
|Pin eye||Male clevis, designed to fit between clevis plates.|
|Piston||Transmits the hydraulic pressure to the rod, to create a pulling or pushing force.|
The connectionpoint between cylinder and the system.
Port Position 'A' : 90 degrees to the pin.
Port Position 'B' : ports in line with the pins.
|Rod||The internal reciprocating member of the cylinder, connected to the piston at one end. Also referred to as the shaft.|
|SBH||Spherical bearing housing.|
|Stop tube||Internal fixture which limits the stroke, usually used in cylinders over 1200mm stroke to increase the rigidity of the cylinder, by increasing the distance between the gland and piston.|
|Stroke||The linear travel of the piston within the cylinder.|
|Tube||Barrel of the cyliinder. The cylinder size is designated byt he tubes internal diameter.|
