VEX Pneumatics Kit 1 - Single Acting Cylinders
This item is temporarily out of stock and is estimated to be available in mid/late February 2022. Please check back for updates.
Pneumatic cylinders use compressed air (rather than motors) to produce motion that rests in one of 2 states: fully extended or fully retracted.
The cylinder in Pneumatics Kit 1 is single-acting -- it uses air to extend the cylinder rod, but uses a spring to return to its contracted state. As a result, the cylinder may expand and contract at different speeds.
In contrast, the cylinders in Pneumatics Kit 2 are double-acting and use compressed air to both extend and retract. The Pneumatics Kit 2 is available here.
Pneumatics Kit 1 - Single Acting Cylinders
Kit 1 is a complete pneumatics add-on for VEX EDR. The cylinders are Single Acting, meaning they use air pressure to extend the piston, and an internal spring to allow the piston to retract.
