Automatic Tensioners Automatic tensioners are required when a cylinder's stroke length is beyond the maximum storke length for full manual cable adjustment for that bore size. Automatic tensioners keeps the cable rigid and ensures maximum service life of both the cable and gland seals. Tensioning units are also recommended for vertical lifting or severe, high-cyclic applications. They are available with one or two 1" strokes and one or two 2" strokes.
Caliper Disc Brakes Caliper disc brakes are used to add holding force in horizontal applications and aid in deceleration at the end of stroke. Caliper disc brakes must be used with an automatic tensioner to function properly.
