Digital Panel Meter
The Electronic Controllers can be used for applications that require accuracy larger than
+/- 0.030". It has 10 VDC transducer excitation and fast responding scalable analog
output capability. It is good for applications that use controllers that do not have the
required PFC input impedance of 1 Mohm.
Position
Control System
The Digital Panel Meter (Model DPM) is a digital panel meter that has a 16 bit A/D
converter and built in microprocessor. When combined with the PFC, the repeatability
is 0.001 inch per inch of stroke. The DPM is great for accurate measuring and gauging
applications. It is easily calibrated to indicate actual displacement and includes multiple
programmable set point outputs. Recommended applications include Go/No Go in-process quality control verification, part identification, and dimensional verification.
Position Feedback
Pneu-Turn
The Pneumatic Control System (PCS) is a closed loop pneumatic motion control system
that controls the position of the PFC rod or the PTF shaft. The system includes the control electronics and valves necessary to accurately control any Bimba position feedback
actuator.
Position Feedback
Cylinder Accessories
The Pneu-Turn rotary actuator with position feedback (Model PTF) is a rotary rack and
pinion actuator that has a rotary potentiometric feedback transducer attached to the
output shaft. The PTF can be combined with Bimba’s Pneumatic Control System Model
PCS described below for closed loop rotary positioning.
Position Feedback
Cylinder Rod Lock
The Position Feedback Cylinders Non-Contact (Model PFCN) is similar to the original
Model PFC, except it employs a magnetostrictive sensor instead of a LRT. The new
technology is ideal for applications that involve dirty or moist environments, rapid oscillation over a small increment of stroke, and vibration. In addition, it is relatively immune
to air line contamination. It is calibrated to produce exactly 0 volts fully retracted and 10
volts fully extended. Like our original PFC, it is available with or without a rod lock.
Position Feedback
Cylinder Non-Contact
The Position Feedback Cylinder (Model PFC) is a linear pneumatic actuator that contains
an internal LRT (Linear Resistive Transducer). The PFC can be used for measuring and
gauging, positioning, and “on-the-fly” applications. It is available with or without a rod
lock. Combine the PFC with the Bimba Pneumatic Control System Model PCS, Digital Panel Meter Model DPM, or the Electronic Controller described below to maximize
performance.

• Side loads (Guiding is required. For detail on acceptable side loads contact Bimba Technical Support.)
• High speeds above 10 in/sec with no means to control impact energy at end of stroke
• High temperatures 200°F
• Low temperatures below - 20°F
• High electric or magnetic fields

Avoid applications that subject the non-contact PFC to:
Position
Control System
• The PFCN is immune to many of the conditions that deteriorate older technology PFC’s, such as the presence of moisture, dirt, dirty air lines, and debris generated as pneumatic products wear, especially at high speeds.
• The PFCN is immune to wear from oscillation back and forth over a narrow range of stroke.
• The PFCN is calibrated for 0 volts fully retracted and 10 volts fully extended for all stroke lengths. Both offset and scale factor are user adjustable. This simplifies installation of multiple cylinders in an application and recalibration of replacement cylinders.
• The PFCN connector is sealed to IP68.
Position Feedback
Pneu-Turn
Bimba’s Non-Contact Position Feedback Cylinders employ a new magnetostrictive sensor. The sensor
tip, fixed inside the cylinder, senses position as a magnet mounted to the piston moves back and forth
across the sensor tip's length. This provides many important advantages, and makes the Non-Contact
Position Feedback Cylinder the preferred solution for closed-loop pneumatic positioning applications.

How it Works
The Bimba Position Feedback Cylinder contains
a Linear Resistive Transducer (LRT) or potentiometer mounted in the cylinder rear head. The LRT
probe, which has a resistive element on one side
and a collector strip on the other, is inside the
cylinder rod. A wiper assembly is installed in the
piston. As the piston moves, an electrical circuit is
created between the resistive element and collector strip. A variable resistance (approximately 1KΩ
per inch of stroke) proportional to piston position in
the cylinder is produced by the cylinder.
Resolution refers to the smallest change that
can be detected on the LRT. The Bimba LRT has
infinite resolution, and can be divided into as many
parts as the electronics allow. For example, with
a 12-bit, 4096-part controller, the stroke could be
divided into 4096 parts. When 10 VDC are placed
on a 10" cylinder, the smallest detectable increment would be 10 VDC ÷ 4096 = 2.4 millivolts or
0.0024". Resolution is stroke sensitive, i.e., the
longer the stroke, the less resolution.
Linearity refers to the maximum deviation of the
output voltage to a straight line. The Bimba LRT’s
linearity is ± 1 percent of stroke.
The cylinder can be easily setup to produce an
analog signal compatible with 0-10 VDC PLC analog inputs.
Repeatability is the ability of the LRT to provide the same output voltage relative to a unique
cylinder position each time the cylinder is cycled.
Mechanical repeatability of the Bimba Position
Feedback Cylinder is ± 0.001".
The accuracy of an LRT is determined by three factors: resolution, linearity and repeatability.

Bimba Position Feedback Cylinder Rod Lock
How it Works
• Dowel pins ride in the cam groove.
• When air pressure is present, piston actuates and dowel pins follow cam to
open position, allowing piston rod to travel freely through clamp.
• In absence of pressure, the spring actuates piston and dowels follow to
closed position, activating the rod clamp.

Operating Guidelines/Product Precautions
• The Rod Lock is not a safety device.
• Do not use for intermediate stopping; the cylinder is designed
to prevent drift from a stationary position.
• Load weight must not exceed the stated holding force for the
cylinder.
• Do not release rod lock if full pressure is present on either
extend or retract. Uncontrolled motion will result that could
damage internal components or cause personal harm.

Bimba Position Feedback Pneu-Turn
How to Order
The model number of the Pneu-Turn rotary actuator
with shaft position feedback capabilities consist of
three alphanumeric clusters. These designate product
type, series, angle of rotation, and special options.
Please refer to the charts below for an example of
model number PTF-098180-A1H1YN, a 1-1⁄2" bore,
single rack, 180˚ angle of rotation actuator with angle
adjustment on both sides, plug connector located on
the clockwise side, and a matching PCS control with
no enclosure.
PTF-098 180 - A1H1 - YN
SERIES - TORQUE FACTOR
098 - 1-1/2" Bore, Single Rack
196 - 1-1/2" Bore, Double Rack
247 - 2" Bore, Single Rack
494 - 2" Bore, Double Rack
PTF base units include ball bearing
and anti-backlash options.
To determine theoretical output
torque (in-lbs.), place a decimal
point between the first and second
digits of the series number. Then
multiply that number by the air line
pressure for the approximate torque
produced.
STANDARD ANGLE
OF ROTATION
045 - 45°
090 - 90°
180 - 180°
325 - 325°
Larger rotational angles
are available. Contact your
Bimba distributor.
For example, a PT-098 will produce
an output torque of .98 times the air
line pressure.

Note: If used for positioning applications, it is
recommended to use low temperature lubricant for
temperatures less than 35°F.
The PTF is prelubricated at the factory for extensive,
maintenance free operation. The life of the rotary
actuator can be lengthened by providing additional
lubrication with an air line mist lubricator or direct
introduction of the oil to the actuator every 500
hours of operation. Recommended oils for Buna N
seals are medium to heavy inhibited hydraulic or
general purpose oil.

Rotary action of the Pneu-Turn rotary actuator is
achieved through the use of a rack and pinion assembly. Just as with any hydraulic or pneumatic
cylinder, the speed of rotation may be controlled
through the use of flow controls. The PTF may also
be controlled with Bimba's Pneumatic Control System, Model PCS.

and feedback is referred to as the error term. When
the error term is zero, all valves close, trapping air on
both sides of the actuator piston. (The error term is
considered to be zero when it is within the deadband
range. The deadband range is an adjustable range that
determines the final repeatability of the system. The
Application Sizing chart located in our Full Line Catalog
shows recommended deadband ranges for given application parameters.) This holds the rod or shaft at it's
commanded position. If some force or weight attempts
to move the rod or shaft out of the commanded position, the system will react by increasing the restoring
force eventually to full supply pressure, if necessary.
Likewise, if the command signal changes, the system
will respond to make the feedback equal the command
signal.
The Bimba Position Control System (Model PCS) is
designed to control any pneumatic Bimba position
feedback actuator. This includes series PFCN, PFCNL,
PFC, and PFCL for linear motion, and the Position
Feedback Pneu-Turn (PTF) for rotary motion. The system is a closed-loop electronic controller with pneumatic valves that can accurately position the actuator
rod or shaft and hold it in position with a high degree
of accuracy and force. The system uses pneumatic
technology to accurately stop and hold the rod or shaft
at any desired position.
The standard PCS accepts a 0-10 V DC or 4-20 mA
analog command signal (jumper selectable). The command signal is used as a reference to move to and
hold a specific position. For example, if the application
has a stroke of 10 inches (i.e., the electrical zero and
span is set for a 10 inch stroke), then a 1 volt change in
the command voltage is equal to a 1 inch movement.
Similarly, a change in command signal of 0.005 of a
volt equals a position change of 0.005 of an inch for the
same 10 inch stroke application. If the application has
a stroke of 5 inches, a change of 1 volt in the command
signal represents a 1⁄2" inch movement. For rotary applications, the convention is similar. If the application
has a rotation of 180 degrees, then a 1 volt change in
the command signal is equal to 18 degrees of rotation.
There are four adjustments on the PCS system, adjustable via four trim pots. They include the Zero, Span,
Decel, and Deadband adjustments. The Zero and Span
adjustments allow you to set the zero and full scale
position of the actuator to match the input (command)
signal. The Decel and Deadband adjustments are used
to optimize the performance of the system based on
application parameters. These adjustments are described in detail in the Operating Manual, which is
included with each system.
The actual accuracy and repeatability of the movements will depend on many factors, including signal
noise, load, velocity, supply pressure, supply voltage,
and application friction.
The system utilizes the feedback from the actuator to
close the control loop. The control loop compares the
system’s command signal (the 0-10 V DC or 4-20mA
input command signal) to the feedback signal from
the actuator. The difference between the command

PFC Cylinder/PCS Valve System Matching and Sizing Recommendations1
For Technical Assistance: 800-442-4622
Bimba Position Control System
Application Sizing
Assumptions used for Sizing Values recommendations:
• Values shown in sizing table are with no overshoot. If overshoot is acceptable for your application, the deadband may
possibly be less than specified. However, be sure your system cannot go unstable.
• PFC cylinder with Option L is used. (Option L has very low friction seals. The standard PFC utilizes a rod wiper which
increases friction significantly, which will have adverse effects on positioning capabilities).
• 80 psi air supply.
• Minimum of 23.5 VDC provided to the PCS.
• Clean Command Signal for Main Control. (<5mV noise/ripple)
• Leak free system (The system will actually perform well with some system leakage, however, the best performance
is with no leakage).
• Hard air lines (nylon) between the valves and the actuator.
• No backlash in the system.
• Horizontally guided load. The system can handle vertical or inclined loads and still meet the minimum deadband
specified above, however, the velocity may be effected by up to 40%.
• Short air lines allow for better accuracy.
Typical “Rules of Thumb”:
• Deviations from the recommended parameters, such as air pressure, power supply voltage, external friction, etc, will
negatively effect system performance. However, the system may still perform adequately for your application.
• Applications with loads less than 10% of actuator capacity and strokes greater than 4 inches will yield better
repeatability than the minimum deadband shown in the sizing table above.
• Reducing actuator velocity by use of Flow Controls may enable the deadband to be adjusted tighter for a given
application. The Flow Controls must be inserted into the exhaust ports of the valve manifold, NOT in the actuator.
• Oversizing the actuator for a given application typically yields better repeatability.
• Generically, following are relative influences on velocity:
– As Mass increases, Velocity decreases (up to 20%)
– As Friction increases, Velocity decreases (up to 20%)
– As Pressure decreases, Velocity decreases (up to 20%)
• Increased Friction decreases repeatability. Maximum external friction should not exceed 20% of the maximum rated
payload. Any external friction in the application will degrade system performance. Ensure the system is aligned
properly to any guiding systems. Misalignment will cause external application friction.
• A borderline solution can be effective through any/all of the following:
– sacrificing performance in one area for another,
– limiting velocity with external flow controls,
– employing a small central portion of a longer probe,
– using a larger bore cylinder.
• The PCS system is not suited for applications where accurate velocity control is needed by controlling the rate
of command signal change. Flow controls can be used if lower velocities are required.
Do not allow the PCS valves to stay on for prolonged time periods unless the valves
are well ventilated, as they may overheat potentially causing damage to the valves.

• The following formula can be used to convert the deadband voltage to displacement:
w - 1/10V*t, where w - deadband width, V - voltage reading from the PCS, t - full scale travel of the actuator (Note: for
PTF rotary actuators with total rotation less than 180° always make t = 180)

Application
Example
The following section will review two examples, one example shows a PFC application, and the second example shows
a PTF rotary example.
PFC Example
Let’s say we have just finished the installation procedure for a Bimba PFC Cylinder with 10 inches of stroke, and are
using a 0-10 VDC input command signal. There is a retracted hard stop at 1.5 inches of cylinder stroke and an extended
hard stop at the 9.0 inches of cylinder stroke.
Therefore:
• After adjusting the Span setting, 10 volts is equivalent to 9.0 inches of cylinder rod extension.
• After adjusting the Zero setting, 1.5 inches of cylinder rod extension will equal 0 volts.
Therefore, 0 to 10 volts covers the 7.5 inch (9.0" - 1.5") range of motion.
Using the following formula:
The command signal can be translated into actuator displacement with the following formula:
CS = d * R / t + Z
where:
CS = the command signal required to achieve a desired position
d = the displacement the desired position is from the zero position
R = the full range of the command signal
t = full scale travel of the actuator (Note: for PTF rotary actuators with total rotation less than 180°
always make t = 180)
Z = the command signal for the zero position
7.38
Bimba Position Control System
To command the PFC to go to a position that is 2.0 inches extended from the retracted hard stop, the command signal
would be calculated as follows:
If a 4-20 mA signal is used, the command input signal would be calculated as follows:
CS = 2 x 16/7.5 + 4 = 8.267 mA Command Input Signal
Let’s say we have just finished the installation procedure for a Bimba PTF Rotary actuator with 200 degrees of rotation,
and a 0-10 VDC command input signal. There is a zero rotational hard stop at 10 degrees of rotation and a full scale
rotational hard stop at 190 degrees of rotation.
Therefore:

Bimba Digital Panel Meter
DPM Series Application
Bimba Digital Panel Meter Model DPM
Application Example
The DPM controller is ideal for measuring and gauging
applications. The measurement repeatability, when
combined with the PFC, is 0.001 inch per inch of stroke.
The DPM supplies the PFC with a very accurate excitation
voltage and has a 16 bit A/D converter. The DPM/PFC
combination can be used as a Go/No Go gauge for in
process quality control, among other things. A typical
application follows:
Desired Result: In line process control verification to
determine if parts meet required specifications.
Example One
The DPM is used in conjunction with a PFC cylinder to verify part specifications during an assembly
process, ensuring quality of parts. RS-485 communications are used to monitor the PFC displacement
remotely from the DPM. (The RS-485 protocol allows up to 32 devices to be connected to one port,
and is less susceptible to signal noise since the
analog to digital conversion is done in the DPM controller, utilizing the same power supply and ground
planes as the PFC.) This information will be read by
a PLC. The PLC determines what should be done
to the part based on the displacement values read.
(i.e., Send part on to the next process, or divert to
rework station.) Use the DPM/PFC combination to
verify if nuts are present and tightened correctly by
checking the height of the nut. Calibrate the DPM
using four calibration points-zero, LCL (lower control limit), UCL (upper control limit), and full scale.
Refer to the Quick Start Guide, or the DPM manual
Example Two
Read the programmable alarm outputs of the DPM
from a PLC input card. The DPM outputs can be
used to determine if a part measures to the proper
tolerance or not. Alarm output one can be programmed to turn on at the upper control limit (UCL)
of the part specification, and alarm output two can
be programmed to turn on at the lower control limit
(LCL) of the part specification. When the PFC is
extended to measure the part, the PLC can read
the DPM setpoint alarm outputs to determine if the
MAX
MIN
TOT
shipped with each control unit for instructions.
Configure the PLC with an RS-485 communication
port. Program the PLC ladder logic according to
your particular application. The ladder logic can be
written to accommodate different sets of specifications for different product lines, making set up for
the different products much easier and less time
consuming.
part conforms to the proper specifications. After the
PFC is extended against the part, the PLC reads
the DPM outputs. If no setpoint alarm turns on,
this means that the PFC displacement is above the
UCL, and the part is too big. If setpoint alarm one is
on, this means that the part is in the good tolerance
zone. If both setpoint alarms are on, this means that
the part is either too small, or the part is not present.

The DPM provides a precision excitation compatible for Bimba’s
PFC. 16-point input scaling feature improves PFC linearity if necessary. The meter provides a Max and Min reading memory with
programmable capture time. The capture time is used to prevent
detection of false max and min readings which may occur during
start-up or unusual process events.
Optional accessory cards also facilitate bus communications.
These include RS232, RS485 and DeviceNet. Readout values
and setpoint alarm values can be controlled through the bus.
Additionally, the meter has features that allow a remote computer
to directly control the outputs of the meter. This is useful during
commissioning phases and diagnostic use. With a communication card installed, set-up software allows configuration from a
PC. The configuration data can be saved to a file for later recall.
Contact Bimba for information if required.
Once the meter has been initially configured, the parameter list
may be locked out from further modification in it's entirety or only
the setpoint values can be made accessible.

Custom Units Overlay
The meter has a backlighted units indicator that can be customized to the application. The backlight is turned on by programming the “b-Llt” parameter. Overlays are available in the Units
Label Kit. To install an overlay, remove the unit from the case.
Select the label and apply it to the label frame, noting that the
label must be aligned accurately. Install the label frame to the
display board in the alignment holes located on the right side of
the display.
Plug-In Cards
The meter has three plug-in card slots. Each slot is dedicated to
a specific function. These functions are:
• Setpoint Outputs
Option
• Analog Outputs
• Communication
The plug-in cards can be used in any combination, however, it is
only possible to use one type of card from each category. Cards
can be installed initially, or at a later date as system needs arise.
Inputs
Voltage Inputs
The Bimba PFC uses the ±20V range (default).
Scaling
The meter has been factory calibrated on all ranges as a basic
multimeter (voltmeter/ammeter/ohmmeter). The basic meter
readout can then be post scaled to read out in the process units
(level, flow, temperature, etc.). The meter provides two ways in
which to scale the display:
Key-in: Key in the input and display scaling points using known
data.
Apply: Apply the actual input value and key in the corresponding
display value. The meter records the input value applied.
For processes that require linearity compensation, up to 16
scaling points can be used for correction. The scaling range is
extended up to five digits of resolution with selectable display
rounding factors.
Input Features
Devicenet Plug-In Card
A unique adaptive input filter is used. Whenever the difference
between one reading and the next is less than the filter band
value, the input is filtered. When the difference exceeds the filter
band value, the input is not filtered. This avoids the usual compromise between using a relative high time constant for good
noise rejection and using a low time constant filter for quick step
response.
Analog Output Plug-In Card
The readout can be corrected for process zero errors with an
offset value. A tare function zeros the readout via a function
operation.
A DeviceNet communication port can be added to the
meter. DeviceNet is a high level bus protocol based upon
the CAN specification. The protocol allows the integration
of devices of different types and manufacturers within a
common communication framework.
The analog output is available as a Plug-in card. Either
the 20 mA or the 10 V output can be used. The output
can be scaled independent of the input range. Reverse
acting output is possible by reversing the scaling point
positions. Other features are selectable update rate and
output source selection.
RS485 Plug-In Card
An RS485 communication port can be added with a
Plug-in card. RS485 offers multi-drop bus communications. All devices connect in parallel on a 485 bus. Only
one device is permitted to transmit at any one time, while
all other devices are in receive mode. The meter controls
the bus when it transmits data, otherwise the meter is in
the receive mode.
RS232 Plug-In Card
An RS232 communication port can be installed with a
Plug-in card. RS232 is intended to allow only 2 devices
to communicate to each other (i.e., printer or computer).
For more information, See DPM Serial Application Guide.
Function Keys and User Inputs
The Function Keys and User inputs can be programmed to
perform specific meter control operations. Function Keys #1 and
#2 each have two types of functions, primary and secondary.
The primary function is executed the instant the key is pressed.
Holding the key for three seconds executes the second function.
If the key is not held for 3 seconds, the second function is not
executed. To implement a hidden key, program no function for
the primary and program the desired function for the second.
The three user inputs can be selected for sinking or sourcing
logic.
Max and Min Reading Detection
The meter records the maximum (max) and minimum (min) process inputs. Conditions such as value activation, sudden change
in material flow rate, etc., can result in false peaks which are not
reflective of the true maximum and minimum of the process. In
this case, Max and Min capture delay times can be used to prevent the detection of false maximums and minimums.

The DPM meets NEMA 4X/IP65 requirements for indoor use when properly installed. The unit is intended to
be mounted into an enclosed panel. Prepare the panel cutout to the dimensions shown in the Dimensions
drawing. Remove the panel latch and cardboard sleeve from the unit and discard the cardboard sleeve.
Slide the panel gasket over the rear of the unit to the back of the bezel. The unit should be installed fully
assembled. Insert the unit into the panel cutout. While holding the unit in place, push the panel latch over the
rear of the unit so that the tabs of the panel latch engage in the slots on the case. The panel latch should be
engaged in the farthest forward slot possible. To achieve a proper seal, tighten the latch screws evenly until
the unit is snug in the panel (Torque to approximately 7 in-lbs [79N-cm]). Do not over-tighten the screws.

Bimba Electronic Controller
Electronic Controller
The Bimba Electronic Controllers provide 10 VDC regulated power to the Position
Feedback Cylinder. Four models are available for AC or DC input and voltage or
current output. Each controller offers both dual set point and scaled analog output
functions. The controllers are strictly analog in nature and are not closed loop motion controllers.
The Bimba electronic controller is ideal for applications where:
• The main system controller being used to
interface with the PFC does not have the
required 1 Mohm input impedance.
• Accuracy is not a key consideration (±
0.030" or higher)
• The customer desires to cycle between
two variable set points without needing to
stop and hold a position.
• The application requires a fast responding scalable analog output signal.
Typical applications include web tensioning or dancer arm control. The Bimba electronic
controller would be used as an interface between the PFC cylinder and the customers web
tensioning or dancer arm controller.
