Ushering in a new era of easy electric cylinder control, the easy ELECYLINDER® is designed as a replacement for pneumatic cylinders featuring simplicity from start-up to maintenance. Speed / Acceleration settings can be set in just 5 minutes. You can also operate it with ON / OFF signals, like a solenoid valve with no time-consuming programming necessary.
The ELECYLINDER® can start and stop smoothly at high velocity, reducing cycle time.
  • Start and end points can be set at any value
  • Battery-less absolute encoder means no maintenance required
  • Built-in controller requires no control panel space
  • Easily repairable in the event of a breakdown
Reduces Electricity Bills

The difference in the rate of power consumption for the ELECYLINDER® and air cylinders depends on the operational frequency.

The higher the operational frequency, the more effective the energy-saving becomes.
Long Service Life

Instead of an impact mechanism, the ELECYLINDER® incorporates a ball screw and ball circulating type built-in linear guide to achieve a long service life.

Based on calculation using the conditions below, the lifespan of the ELECYLINDER® is five times longer than that of air cylinders.
Easily Reduce Cycle Time
Air cylinders cannot operate at high velocity due to the impact at stroke ends which occurs when excess velocity is applied.

The ELECYLINDER® can start and stop smoothly at high velocity, reducing cycle time.

The SIG200 ProfiNet Sensor Integration Gateway is designed to work as both IO-Link Masters and small, distributed control systems in one.

SICK’s SIG200 is an IO-Link Master with an on-board web server that collects, combines, evaluates and transmits signals from IO-Link devices from any manufacturer. Built-in logic and remote intelligence make it quick and easy for engineers to create and run distributed sensor applications, even independently of the PLC.
  • 4 configurable IO-Link master ports (standard I/O or IO-Link)
  • Easy parameterization via USB or Ethernet
  • A maximum of 52 I/Os can be connected to one SIG200
  • Solution of complex application tasks with the logic editor

Initially available with the ProfiNet Ethernet fieldbus protocol, additional fieldbus versions of the SIG200 will follow in future.
