noncaptive linear actuatorHaydon Kerk Motion Solutions introduced the Haydon RoHS compliant IDEA non-captive programmable linear actuator. In addition to full programmability through an easy-to-use graphic user interface, the non-captive actuator configuration is capable of up to 20” of stroke length with a variety of screw pitches allowing fine resolution linear motion. The non-captive programmable actuator is appropriate for small gantry robots, motion systems for optics and lasers, high resolution imaging, precision fluid dispense, and other applications requiring precision linear motion. The software allows the system designer to 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 ever connecting actual I/O hardware. Other features include programmable current control, a single supply voltage of 12 V to 48 VDC, 2.6 Arms (3.68 Apeak) max rated current per phase, and eight opto-isolated general purpose I/O. The inputs are rated for 5 V to 24 VDC, 4 mA max per input. The outputs are open collector, 5 V to 24 VDC, 200 mA maximum per output.
