Linear Positioners feature DeviceNet connectivity.

Press Release Summary:



Available as linear motors and linear actuators, ServoTube positioners utilize direct-drive electromagnetic technology, which produces drive force to 420 lb, speed of 8.7 m/s, and 5.8 ms² acceleration. Moving rod linear actuator has internal, lubricant-free bearings and meets IP67 qualifications. Linear motor mounts load onto traveling forcer. Both are thermally efficient, eliminating need for forced air cooling. DeviceNet connectivity permits integration into PLC-based systems.



Original Press Release:



DeviceNet Connectivity Integrates Xenus Controller and High Speed Linear Actuator into PLC-based Systems



Canton, MA, September 14, 2005- ServoTube and Xenus, a high performance, multi-position linear actuation solution, now features DeviceNet connectivity, which permits easy, seamless integration into PLC-based control systems. Available as both linear motors and linear actuators, ServoTube positioners provide fast, clean, quiet-running actuation at low cost.

ServoTube direct drive electromagnetic technology produces drive force to 420 pounds, and superior speed (8.7 m/s) and acceleration (5.8 ms2). A patented magnetic design raises resolution and accuracy of Hall sensing technology, enabling ServoTube's integral solid-state position sensors to provide 12 microns repeatability.

Linear Actuator-The ServoTube moving rod linear actuator has internal lubricant-free bearings and meets IP67 ruggedness qualifications, which bring foodsafe and washdown advantages. A high rigidity version can be supplied and an optional holding brake is available. Compatibility with a wide range of industry standard mounting accessories facilitates simple drop-in pneumatic cylinder replacement.

Linear Motor-The ServoTube linear motor has similar specifications and mounts the load onto the traveling forcer. Multiple forcers can be mounted for independent load/unload actions or to double or triple drive force. Both motor and actuator are based on a thermally efficient design that eliminates the need for forced air cooling: no compressed air supply and compressor required either!

Applications-DeviceNet connectivity enables Xenus controllers to integrate ServoTube linear actuators and linear motor into PLC-based automation. Tasks include placing, filling, transferring, gluing and shearing actions, for packaging, assembly, materials handling and similar systems.
