Rod locks

Generation 2 RLSS series rod locks are spring engaged and air released, to deliver holding forces to 5000 lb with low backlash. Optional magnetic inductive sensor can improve overall machine safety by creating a monitoring system that allows feedback during operation. Clamping collar applies a holding force 360° around cylinder rod, allowing rod lock to consistently deliver high force without causing rod displacement. Sizes include ISO, NFPA, and custom.
