Three micro cylinder sizes

Space-saving, high speed, high acceleration/deceleration and quiet operation

The new ultra-small linear servo cylinder offers functions comparable to an air cylinder at Ø16mm

Micro Cylinder slim body profile 1. Ultra-small Diameter Cylinder Actuator
The compact actuator with the minimum size of 16mm can be installed even in the most confined spaces. Installation is easier than an air cylinder, because there's no piping to worry about.

2. Compact Size Achieved by Linear Motor
IAI adopted the linear motor method requiring no rotating speed-reducer mechanism to accommodate all these features in a compact body.

Micro cylinder internals
3. Smooth, Quiet Operation
The sine-wave drive using 3-phase coil eliminates cogging. Furthermore, there's virtually no outside leakage of magnetism.

4. Built-in Encoder Supports Multiple Positioning Points
Thanks to its built-in encoder, the RCL series can perform positioning to a maximum of 512 points when combined with a compact, affordable ACON controller.

5. Brake Option
Designed for use in vertical applications, the brake-type RCL prevents the load from dropping when power outages occur or if the power is cut off accidentally.

ACON and ASEL controllers 6. Choice of Controllers for Different Applications
The RCL series can be combined with ASEL controllers supporting program operation, or ACON controllers supporting operation by position specification. The ACON series includes different types of controllers including the standard type, solenoid type, pulse-train input type, and serial communication type. Choose a controller that best suits your specific application and purpose.
