With the PSA56, Nanotec launches its first linear actuator with integrated controller. This extremely compact drive unit combines the LSA56 hybrid linear actuator and the intelligent controllers of Nanotec’s PD4-E series.
The integrated magnetic single-turn absolute encoder has a resolution of 1,024 CPR and supports field-oriented control via CANopen. The screw’s protective coating is made of carbon material and improves the friction characteristics and thus the service life of the nuts. Offering the full range of motion control, I/O and communication options, the PSA56 actuator is highly configurable.
This programmable linear actuator provides a robust and durable solution for demanding applications that require high repeatability – in laboratory automation, packaging machines, medical equipment or material handling applications. Because the controller and encoder are integrated in the actuator, installation costs and cabling effort are reduced considerably.
