Original Press Release:

Haydonkerk Motion SOLUTIONS(TM) Introduces the Kerk RGS® Linear Slide Combined with the HAYDON(TM) MOTODRIVE(TM)

Available with an integrated size 17 single or double stack linear actuator

HaydonKerk Motion Solutions(TM), a premier manufacturer of linear motion products, offers the Kerk RGS® linear slide assembly combined with the Haydon(TM) MotoDrive(TM) PDE Actuator. The integrated linear slide, stepper motor, and electronic drive assembly combines both Kerk and Haydon technology in a single unit.

The Kerk RGS linear slide features a standard wear-compensating, anti-backlash driven carriage to ensure repeatable and accurate positioning. All moving surfaces include Kerkite® high performance polymers running on either Kerkote® or Black Ice(TM) TFE coatings, providing a strong, stable platform for a variety of linear motion applications.

The Haydon MotoDrive is an integrated linear actuator and electronic drive designed to operate with optically isolated inputs of pulse, direction and enable signals. The MotoDrive is programmable for micro-stepping ranging from full step mode to 64 micro steps per full step. Step resolution ranges from 200 full steps per revolution to 12,800 steps per revolution when micro-stepping. With a supply voltage of 12 to 42 vdc, the MotoDrive Actuator functions with a run current programmable at HaydonKerk up to 2.6 Arms per phase. The drive direction is enabled with logic level voltage, and is activated using +5 vdc. When operated at ground potential, the drive executes a retract move of the actuator.

By combining components into a complete optimized assembly, HaydonKerk is able to reduce risk, increase safety, and improve integration for the OEM or end user resulting in a lower overall system cost. To find out more, contact HaydonKerk Motion Solutions at
