ECT-Series Precision Linear Actuators

ECT-Series Precision Linear Actuators

Thomson's ECT Series of Precision Linear Actuators are our highest performing line of electric cylinder systems.  Designed for the most demanding applications, the ECT Series is ideal when powerful performance over a long life cycle is required.   With a full complement of drive controls, accessories, options, and mounting types, these systems are adaptable to just about any application environment. As a better choice over hydraulic or pneumatic equivalents, the ECT Series are simpler to install, maintain, and control. This family comes in two different sizes mating our traditional T-Series T90 and T130 actuators with both AC servo and 3Φ AC induction motor configurations.
