Abstract

Pneumatic actuator 10 acts as a stop for modules M being supported and fed between inclined channel tracks T. Toggle 11 is pivotally mounted to recessed cover 12. Outer arm 11A, when in the STOP position, extends into the path of module M and arrests M's motion when M's leading edge comes into contact with the resilient impact pad 13 affixed to arm 11A.
