Alongside precision couplings, gears and intelligent motion control, Reliance Precision Mechatronics, the UK distributor for premier manufacturer of linear motion products, Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions, offers the RoHS compliant IDEA™ External Linear Programmable Actuator. This completes a line of fully programmable size 17 stepper motor linear actuators.
The external linear IDEA programmable actuator is perfect for small gantry robots, motion systems for optics and lasers, high resolution imaging, precision fluid dispensers, and other applications requiring precise linear motion.
The IDEA actuator is a compact, easy-to-use electronic drive and fully programmable control unit. This is integrated with a linear actuator resulting in a single, compact package with a variety of screw pitches allowing fine resolution linear motion and a stroke length of up to 508mm. The actuator is programmed using on-screen graphic buttons, instead of complicated command sets or other proprietary programming languages. The software allows the system designer to easily troubleshoot programs through line-by-line or multiple line program execution using the interactive debug feature. Inputs and outputs can also be simulated in software before connecting I/O hardware.
Other features include programmable current control, a single supply voltage of 12 to 48 VDC, 2.6Arms (3.68Apeak) max rated current per phase, and 8 opto-isolated general purpose I/O. The inputs are rated for 5 to 24 VDC, 4mA max per input. The outputs are open collector, 5 to 24 VDC, 200mA maximum per output.
