Thomson actuators and screw jacks are offered with both analog and digital feedback to allow precise tracking of the sun. A custom tailored solution can be an integrated part of the structure.
The best wind conditions are often found in locations that are hard to reach – at sea, in the middle of a large field and on hill-tops. Harsh environments require rugged solutions, and Thomson's products get the job done.

- custom designs for unique applications
Rugged and reliable
Thomson products suitable for applications in the clean energy industry are rugged and reliable, withstand harsh environments and are protected to IP67.
Manufacturers are taking a long, hard look at the way they use motion control systems in their equipment. Once dominated by pneumatic and hydraulic systems, machines are now more often designed to use electric linear actuators for the automation of many tasks. They are easier to control, integrate with control systems and are smaller, lighter and cleaner than hydraulic systems – all attributes that brighten a company’s bottom line. Electric linear actuators or screw jacks eliminate:
- hydraulic pumps, valves and hoses
- cost and bulk associated with hydraulic systems
- environmentally hazardous oil and risk of leakage
- high energy consumption of hydraulic systems
- costly hydraulic reliability issues (contamination)
- cost and hassle associated with fluid maintenance.
At Thomson, Customization is Standard
Thomson is the industry leader in custom design. Our design flexibility and unique customization expertise give us an advantage to quickly provide customers a cost- effective design that meets their exact requirements.
