Linear Voice Coil Housed ActuatorThe Linear Voice Coil Housed Actuator features its own shaft and bearings as well as an integrated AMP connector, which simplify OEM installation. Suitable uses include a variety of industrial applications such as valve actuation, replacement of pneumatic and hydraulic actuators for better positioning, speed and force control, medical science and lab instrumentation, optic devices, semiconductor equipment, and office/factory automation. The presence of the integrated AMP connector eliminates flying leads and the need for terminals. The only part needed by the customer for actuator installation is a mating female connector. The actuator, manufactured with a linear bearing system, provides an extremely large number of cycles (tests have proven performance up to 10 billion cycles). A flex circuit inside the device also contributes to high reliability of operation. Designed in a durable package measuring 2.75” (70 mm) in diameter and 5.2” (132.7 mm) in length, its large size allows for a Peak force capability of 60 lbs. (267 N). Other key performance characteristics include force sensitivity of 4.56 lbs. /Amp (20.28 N/Amp), stroke of 1-inch (25.4 mm) and continuous force of 17 lbs. (75.6 N). Fully enclosed, the actuator can operate in harsh and dirty environments without worry of actuator contamination.
