Press Release Summary:
Offering plug-and-play alternative to servo-controlled pneumatic cylinders, IP67-rated ServoTube actuators utilize direct electromagnetic drive for 20 micron repeatability. Products integrate non-contact Hall position sensor and lubrication-free bearings. Able to develop continuous force from 35-66 lb and peak force from 167 lb, actuators are offered with 9 stroke lengths from 33-318 mm, develop velocity to 4.6 m/s, and acceleration to 435 m/sÂ².
Original Press Release:
New ServoTube Actuator Develops 418 Pounds Peak Force
Powerful actuator is plug-and-play alternative to servo controlled pneumatic cylinders: direct electromagnetic drive delivers superior speed and acceleration, provides 20 microns repeatability
Canton, MA, September 6, 2005---Copley Controls has tripled the force rating of its direct drive ServoTube moving rod linear actuators. The new models develop continuous force from 35 to 66 pounds and peak force from 167 to 418 pounds. Nine stroke lengths from 33 to 318 mm are available. The actuators provide 20 microns repeatability, velocity to 4.6 m/s, and acceleration to 435 ms2.
A breakthrough in magnetic design enables the actuator's non-contact Hall position sensor to eliminate the traditional external position encoder. Integral solid-state sensing lays the foundation for IP67 rating, installation ease, food-safe operation, and outstanding control flexibility. ServoTube actuators are equipped with long life, lubrication-free bearings that ensure quiet operation and provide years of maintenance-free production. The actuator's combination of power, speed, and repeatability maximize throughput, while superior controllability brings seamless integration into PLC control systems.
Powerful ServoTube actuators provide a cost effective drop-in alternative to servo-controlled air cylinders in flexible manufacturing automation. No compressed air and no continuously operating compressor needed! The actuators also replace ballscrew and belt drive positioners. The actuators are used with versatile Xenus controllers, which run on 120/240 AC. Xenus controllers provide comprehensive motion sequencing capability, electronic camming, and DeviceNet/CANopen connectivity.
