Will the double-acting pneumatics cylinders still work if you switch the L-shaped fitting and the one touch fitting? We want to use the right angle connector at the bottom of the piston.
You can use these two fittings (both the L-shaped and the straight fittings) interchangeably on the pneumatic cylinders.
The L-shaped fittings are flow-control valves. By adjusting the twist knob on the fitting, you can control how quickly air leaves the fitting.
The straight fittings are just normal fittings that do not restrict airflow.
Depending on various robot constraints (such as space limitations, or the desire to adjust how quickly the cylinder extends and/or retracts), it may be preferable for robot builders to use one or the other on their pneumatic cylinders.
