Multiple position cylinder, double-acting

By connecting two cylinders of same piston diameter but different maximum stroke three piston stop positions can be realized. From the first stop position the third stop can be reached either directly or via the intermediate stop. Note that the maximum stroke of the second piston must be larger than the preceding one. When moving back, an intermediate stop requires a particular control. The shorter maximum stroke is half of the other maximum stroke.
