Thomson has introduced the Max Jac, a heavy-duty linear actuator designed for use in rugged environments such as mobile off-highway areas. Typical applications include fertiliser or salt and sand spreaders, throttle or seeding systems, marine, offshore, rail and mining technology and any task with a large amount of wash-down or exposure to aggressive substances.

The Max Jac is built to work with virtually no maintenance. It maintains accuracy in harsh conditions and its design helps to prevent leakage.

A non-contact feedback signal ensures accuracy over time and eliminates the need for re-calibration.

Key features and benefits

  • The Max Jac is IP69K rated and features a stainless steel adapter and extension tubes.
  • In testing, the Max Jac maintained performance when subjected to 500 hours of salt spray; exposure to aggressive substances such as fertilisers, acid, oil, grease and cleaning agents; rigorous vibration testing; and extreme temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C.
  • It offers stroke lengths from 50mm to 300mm with a potential speed of 60mm/sec.
  • The Max Jac can be custom designed by Thomson engineers to fit a range of applications.
  • Options include either analogue or digital encoder output, as well as self-locking worm screw or ball-screw models.
