Compact external linear programmable actuator offers 508mm stroke length
14 September 2010
New from Reliance Precision Mechatronics, UK distributor for Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions, the RoHS compliant IDEA external linear programmable actuator completes a line of fully programmable size 17 stepper motor linear actuators.
The IDEA actuator is a compact, easy-to-use electronic drive and fully programmable control unit. This single, compact package with a variety of screw pitches provides fine resolution linear motion and a stroke length of up to 508mm. The actuator is programmed using on-screen graphic buttons, instead of complicated command sets or other proprietary programming languages. The software allows the system designer to easily troubleshoot programs through line-by-line or multiple line program execution using the interactive debug feature. Inputs and outputs can also be simulated in software before connecting I/O hardware.
Other features include programmable current control, a single supply voltage of 12 to 48 VDC, 2.6Arms (3.68Apeak) max rated current per phase, and 8 opto-isolated general purpose I/O. The inputs are rated for 5 to 24 VDC, 4mA max per input. The outputs are open collector, 5 to 24 VDC, 200mA maximum per output.
