The Servo Cylinder is a compact, high performance brushless dc linear actuator with advanced control electronics and Phase Index absolute position feedback.
The integrated Phase Index sensor is digital, high-resolution, and non-contacting with a wide operating temperature range and is resistant to a range of harsh environmental conditions. The combination of Phase Index with the Servo Cylinder eliminates the need for homing, limit switches, potentiometers, LVDTs, optical encoders, Hall Effect sensors, and more. All that is required after a simple USB configuration is power and command.
The Servo Cylinder outputs forces up to 530 lbf, speeds up to 14 in/sec, and linear travel up to 7.75 in., with a maximum supply voltage range from 7 to 48 Vdc. Commands can be sent by a variety of simple, configurable signals like analog dc voltage, 4-20mA, 1-2ms pulse, step & direction, preset positions, serial commands, and more.
