REELL PRECISION MANUFACTURING, ST. PAUL, MINN.
The PS-100 position hinge enables precise and sustained positioning of heavy devices and end-products with long moment arms--trays, displays, control panels, keypads and keyboards, armrests, and other demanding position-control applications. The hinge allows for infinite positioning with full 360-degree range of motion, reliably maintains a selected position for as long as necessary, easily adjusts, and has a qualified service life of 50,000 cycles. Torque ranges from 7 to 11.5 newton-meters (61.9 to 101.8 lb.-in.) in increments of 1.5 Nm (13.2 lb.-in.). The hinge is currently engineered with symmetric torque (the same torque in both directions) and will be available later this year with patent pending "one-way" torque (high torque in one direction with virtually no torque in the other).
