Thomson currently has two account systems - one for the website and CAD model downloads, and one for e-commerce. We understand that two logins is an inconvenience and are working to consolidate our systems into one login process. Until we’re able to consolidate the two logins, please follow these guidelines:
The ECT and T Series product lines have a number of mounting, feedback and drive accessories.
To be able to mount a
precision linear actuator, the appropriate mounting and adapter options
must be selected. There are several different options to choose from.
However, ECT and T actuators come with mounting holes and T-slots that
can be used.
along the profile can be adjusted freely by the customer. A trunnion
bracket kit is available separately for T60.
accessory can be mounted on the unit from the factory or ordered
separately and added later. When ordered separately, all necessary
screws to attach the trunnions to the unit are included.
spherical joint option can be mounted on the unit from the factory or
ordered separately. When ordered separately, all necessary components to
attach the spherical joints to the unit are included. Type M joints
include a grease nipple.
ordering a spherical joint separately, make sure that the extension tube
end has an outside thread adapter to be able to mount it.
The magnetic sensors used in the precision linear actuators consist of a reed switch that is molded into a plastic housing. In the actuator, a magnet is mounted that travels back and forth with the extension tube. The magnet triggers the magnetic sensors, which are mounted on the outside of the cover tube. The sensors come in both normally open and normally closed versions.
The magnetic sensors are mounted directly in the sensor slots on both sides of the profile of the units. They require no additional mounting bracket. The sensor is fixed in position by two M3 size locking screws.
A belt gear consists of a timing belt that runs between two pulley wheels of different diameter. The difference between the diameters determines the gear ratio. Belt gears are quiet, have medium accuracy and require no maintenance. However, the belt is susceptible to breakage under overload conditions.
