Voice Coil Actuator with Integral LVDT Sensor



San Marcos, Calif., May, 2003 - BEI Kimco Magnetics Division of BEI Technologies, Inc. introduces its new voice coil actuator with an integrated position sensor. Model LAS10-20-001 integrates an LVDT position feedback sensor for servo positioning or velocity control. It can be mounted into hand-held wands and used in reciprocal medical applications, like skin-abrasion and tissue stimulation. This servo-ready device is compatible with the company's model VCA-100 controller. Users can control velocity, position, force, reciprocation, and acceleration in applications such as valve control, beam steering, clamping, and servo-control of the X, Y, and Z axes.

This compact actuator measures 2.5", has a stroke of 0.2", and exerts 17 oz. of force.
It offers the following advantages:
o Direct Drive
o Zero Cogging
o Zero Hysteresis
o Infinite Set-ability (limited only by the accuracy of the sensor)

In applications where high speed, high reliability, extreme accuracy, and superior performance are vital, this new actuator and its integrated sensor may be the right match.
