Al Wroblaski, Thomson Linear Actuator Product Line Manager, demonstrates the advantages of Industrial Linear Actuators over hydraulic systems. He discusses issues such as contamination, temperature, safety, economy, maintenance, integration and system size. Also included is a demonstration of application data acquisition techniques and their use in optimizing customer applications.

Electrak 5

The Electrak 5 actuator is designed for intermittent duty applications.  With acme and ball screw driven options and powered with either 115, 230, or 400 VAC, these actuators can push or pull loads up to 6800 N (1500 lbf) and hold loads up to 18000 N (4050 lbf).  Maximum no-load speeds are attainable to 60 mm/s (2.4 in/s) and stroke lengths reaching to 610 mm (24 in).  Control these units either through a simple push-button switch or through a Thomson control unit.Learn more about Electrak 5 >

Electrak 205

Electrak 205 actuators feature multi-step positioning capability through a 10-turn potentiometer for precise feedback control when used with Thomson actuator control systems. With adjustable integral limit switches, the automatic shut off travel range can be easily adjusted.  These actuators can be powered with either 115 or 230 VAC and push or pull up to 6800 N (1500 lbf) while holding loads to 17800 N (4000 lbf).  No-load maximum speeds are also possible up to 52 mm/s (2.05 in/s) and stroke lengths up to 610 mm (24 in).
