Pneumatic Sensor -RPV
Edge sensor RPV Type is purely Pneumatic, its operation is based on rotary piston principle.
A rotary piston opens in the air supply to the respective cylinder chamber proportionally to the position of the sensor paddle.
At the same time the venting passage to the opposite cylinder chamber is opened. The value is completely closed when the midway position. In this case air is required for the positioning movements only.
