A characteristic feature of block cylinders is their rectangular housing. This housing shape allows the implementation of various mounting options. They can be operated with an operating pressure of up to 500 bar  (7250 PSI), and there are various options for sensing the piston position. For strokes greater than 200 mm (7.87 inches) the housing has a cuboid shape; larger strokes are implemented using a tube between the cuboid head and the bottom. The main area of application of block cylinders is mold construction.
