Series 500 programmable linear actuatorThe Series 500 programmable linear actuator offers an expanded range of performance in generating higher loads, longer life, increased duty cycles, higher speed and programmability. The series offers versatility, precision, and control for a broad range of market applications (including military, packaging, and automotive). The Series 500 offers an optional external Linear Position Sensor (LPS) that provides intelligent, programmable positioning and verification feedback for parallel and higher speed in-line configurations. Load capacities range up to 550 lbs. for in-line configurations with parallel configurations ranging up to 1,000 lbs. and offering stroke lengths ranging from 2”-to-24” (with custom lengths available upon request). The Series 500 actuator is designed to be configured with stepper or servo motors and controls—supplied either as a complete system (including motors and controls), or simply with just a motor. Ball screw driven designs are available for continuous high-speed, high-cycle rate applications and can operate at speeds up to 25 inches per second. Acme screw driven designs are available for low duty cycle applications where self-locking is desired to hold the load without the use of a brake or loss of power. Nook’s Series 500 is designed with T-Slot extrusions to accommodate adjustable limit switches and the optional external Linear Position Sensor. The LPS is a non-contact/no-wear sensor with a small package size that requires a short operating space—half the space needed compared to LVDTs or rod and cylinder pots. Fitting where no other sensors typically can, it still offers all the benefits of magnetostrictive sensing.
