The 18-Ch Cylinder Positioning Control Interface is a 36-output device that converts OpenSoundControl messages to control position feedback pneumatic cylinders by reading the voltage variation in linear potentiometers and actuating 24VDC double-solenoid valves to move the piston rods accordingly. This interface is based on the Rabbit 3700 microcontroller.
