Indexing plunger, stainless steel with remote actuation


Indexing plungers are used where any change in locking position due to lateral forces should be prevented.
Some examples of this are for length, height and position indexing in machine, furniture and special vehicle construction.

Indexing plungers with remote actuation are used where inaccessible assembly spaces are making it difficult to operate, or where remote actuation is required for ergonomic or safety reasons.

The indexing plunger is connected to the operator side by a Bowden cable. The combination of indexing plunger and actuating element forms a complete system which can be used for many types of application. Form D should be used for applications where the indexing pin should remain disengaged for an extended period and be prevented from springing back.
As an alternative to the actuating element, the supplied screw nipple (Ø5 x 7 mm) can be used to integrate an individual actuating element into the system.

The Bowden cable is available in various lengths.
To ensure an exact fit in the application concerned, the Bowden cable can be shortened as required during installation.

Corrosion protection is achieved by selecting a suitable material and surface treatment. The wire cable or cable sheath can be easily replaced if required.

Note for ordering
Indexing plungers with remote actuation and actuating element must be ordered separately.
When installing the Bowden cables, the following points should be noted:
The length of the free end of the cable can change due to the layout angle, bending radius and load factors. So, after laying the Bowden cable, the length of the counter-bearing (casing) must be adjusted using the adjusting screw supplied. The adjusting screw is also used to set the pretension in the Bowden cable system.
When laying the cable, particular care must be taken to ensure that the bending radius is not below the minimum value, which in this case is R = 65 mm. A radius which is too narrow can lead to increased wear and higher friction.
Also avoid letting the bending radius briefly go below the minimum value when installing, as this can cause damage to the casing. Also, the casing is designed only to support pressure forces. If pulled too sharply, the inner coil will be stretched and permanently damaged.
