The all-stainless-steel ERD electric rod-style actuators meet stringent food and beverage applications. Made of all-304 stainless steel, including an optional protective motor enclosure, ERD actuators are rated IP67 for washdown and are available in multiple screw technologies. They are available as two main ordering options. The SS2 option is available in two sizes with protective motor enclosure and a variety of cabling options. You have a choice of electrical connections that include either cord grips or industry-standard conduit threads. The SS1 is available in three sizes and is, essentially, a stainless steel version of the base ERD.
The ERD is available in stroke lengths of up to 12 in. Depending on the choice of ball nut or solid nut, it delivers up to 200 lb of thrust or speeds up to 40 ips. Solid nuts made of engineered resins offer quiet performance at a lower cost. Ball nuts offer positioning accuracy and repeatability with longer life.
