Linear Actuator Enables Full Programmability

Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions has introduced the Haydon RoHS-compliant Idea non-captive programmable linear actuator. In addition to full programmability through a graphic user interface, the non-captive actuator configuration is capable of up to 20in of stroke length, with a variety of screw pitches allowing fine-resolution linear motion.

The non-captive Idea programmable actuator is suitable for small gantry robots, motion systems for optics and lasers, high-resolution imaging, precision fluid dispense and other applications requiring precision linear motion. The Idea system is a compact electronic drive and fully programmable control unit integrated with a linear actuator, resulting in a single, compact package.

Programming the actuator is though the use of on-screen graphic buttons instead of command sets or other proprietary programming languages. The software allows the system designer to easily troubleshoot programs through line-by-line or multiple-line program execution using the interactive debug feature.

Inputs and outputs can also be simulated in software before ever connecting actual I/O hardware. Other features include programmable current control, a single supply voltage of 12 to 48V DC, 2.6Arms (3.68Apeak) max rated current per phase and eight opto-isolated general-purpose I/O. The inputs are rated for 5 to 24V DC, 4mA max per input. The outputs are open collector, 5 to 24V DC, 200mA maximum per output.
