Heavy duty linear actuator

Cover 005

The Thomson Electrak HD actuator, now available from Treotham Automation, is described as the next generation heavy duty linear actuator.

Said to provide the best on-board controls currently available in electric linear actuators, eliminating the need for standalone controls, the actuator offers advanced performance and superior environmental protection.

The higher power and longer stroke lengths allow the actuator to tackle applications outside the range of other electric linear actuators.

According to the company, the actuator can withstand the harshest environments and be used for a large number of applications including utility vehicles, roadwork and construction site equipment, railroad equipment, emergency and rescue vehicles, and switch gears. It is also suitable for single-user maintenance and repair, quick attach and logistic systems.
The actuator is described as being simple to use and is built within one compact housing. It includes an optional built-in J1939 CAN bus support, temperature compensation, overload protection and electronic trip point calibration.

Constant monitoring of vital parameters such as end-of-stroke, voltage, current and temperature is standard on all HD actuators. It also features a dynamic/holding break, flying lead cables and front/rear clevis options.

The actuator is CE, RoHS and REACH (EU) certified, and meets the most extreme OEM component environmental acceptance tests, including IP69K, IP67 and IP66.
