Industrial electric linear actuators
These linear actuators are electromechanical devices designed for push and pull forces in wide-ranging industrial applications. Small actuators with ratings as low as 200 N can have DC or AC motors. Medium to large actuators with forces up to 350 kN are generally powered by AC motors. Speeds range from 1 to 875 mm/s with the highest ratings achieved by 'U' shaped actuators such as the UBA. High speeds and high precision positioning are often achieved with servo motors.
Standard actuator strokes are from 100 to 1,500 mm. In push applications the stroke may be limited by buckling limits. Special designs with non-standard strokes, fittings, motors, etc. are possible for volume applications. Actuators are available optimised for solar tracking of photovoltaic panels.
