Original Press Release:
Size 23 Linear Actuators with Encoder Feedback
HSI is proud to announce that its size 23 hybrid linear actuators are now available with encoder feedback.
The compact optical incremental encoder design is available with two channel quadrature TTL squarewave outputs. An optional index (3rd channel) is also available. The encoder is offered in resolutions ranging from 100 to 2,048 cycles per revolution (CPR or 400 to 8,192 pulses per revolution (PPR). The operating temperatures are - 400 to + 100°C.
Simplicity and low cost make the encoders ideal for both high and low volume motion control applications. The internal monolithic electronic module converts the real-time shaft angle, speed, and direction into TTL compatible outputs. The encoder module incorporates a lensed LED light source and monolithic photodetector array with signal shaping electronics to produce the two channel bounceless TTL outputs.
These hybrid linear actuators are available in a wide variety of resolutions ranging from .0003125" to .002" and deliver thrusts of up to 200 lbs. without compromising long life and cost. Applications requiring precise positioning and rapid motion are best suited for this motor. Priced competitively, this product is ideal for drop-in replacements to improve performance and life or for incorporation into your next project. In addition to standard configurations, HSI can custom design this motor to meet your specific application requirements.
