Standard Dampers

AVM offers a complete line of standard dampers. These units can be chosen to dampen on extension or compression with a wide range of damping rates.

Standard dampers are available in two sizes : 6 x 15 dampers with strokes from 2 to 5 inches and 8 x 22 dampers with strokes from 2 to 7 inches.

AVM dampers can be applied anywhere a lid or weight needs to be decelerated. Typical applications include printer covers, liftdown gates, overhead bin doors and steering linkages.

How to Specify a Standard Damper

The product line has been coded so that each component of the product number represents a different element: stroke, rod and tube size, damping direction and rate and connector type.

EXAMPLE:
Product number: SD300AEJPS130
SD Standard Damper
300 Stroke (3.0 inches)
A Rod and Tube size (6mm x 15mm)
E Damping direction (E = extension, C = compression)
J Damping coefficient (See chart below)
PS130 Connector
