This standard includes
â€” nominal dimensions of accessories for cataloged industrial square head fluid power cylinders. Such accessories include pivot pins, plain rod eyes, rod clevises, eye brackets, split collars and weld plates [basic cylinder dimensions are standardized in NFPA/T3.6.7 R3];
â€” dimensional identification code for envelope and mounting dimensions not already set forth in ISO 6099;
â€” dimensions for simplification of variety and dimensional interchangeability purposes only. This document is in no way intended to imply suitability of dimensioned components for any particular service or application. A method to determine load ratings will be handled through subsequent documents;
â€” dimensions for mounting accessories that will have a load rating compatible to that of the cylinder pressure rating for which the accessory is intended.
â€” simplifies varieties of sizes and configurations;
â€” promotes accessory interchangeability by establishing uniform mounting dimensions;
â€” allows manufacturers freedom of design and still provides basic guidelines necessary for component interchangeability.
This standard provides
â€” common language for dimension identification;
â€” a simplified pattern for dimension presentation.
