Original Press Release:
World's Largest and Most Powerful Voice Coil Actuator
San Marcos, Calif., January, 2003 - BEI Kimco Magnetics Division of BEI Technologies, Inc. has introduced the world's largest and most powerful Voice Coil Actuator. The model LA100-90-001 is a cylindrical voice coil linear actuator featuring a total stroke of 2.0 in. (50.8 mm), a continuous stall force of 290 lb. (1.29 kN) and a peak force rating of 550 lb. (2.45 kN) (for 10 seconds max.). It is a two-terminal, hysteresis free, cog free, direct drive linear servo with infinite position sensitivity and features a linear force constant characteristic for simple control.
Model LA100-900-001 finds use in applications such as vibration control, seismology, die drawing, training simulators and other applications where precise, direct control of motion and force is required.
Unloaded acceleration capability is 12.8 g's continuous and 24 g's for 10 seconds.
Model LA100-90-001 features a 2.80 in. (71mm) center hole for linear bearing installation, or forced ventilation, or other requirements such as cable runs, optical paths or sensor installation.
Basic dimension: 10.3 in. (261.6mm) x 9.0 in. (228.6mm) long with coil assembly at mid-stroke.
