Thomson Industries introduced its Electrak HD™ electric linear actuators offering a high level of electronic functionality via the Electrak Modular Control System.
These electric linear actuators boost power to 10 kN (2250 lbs.) with stroke lengths up to 1000mm (39 inches). They are designed to perform in heavy-duty and harsh environment applications such as mobile-off-highway vehicles, utility vehicles, emergency and rescue vehicles, and construction equipment.
The Electrak HD™ features a simpler method of control and communication that requires less space and simplifies setup and installation. This includes SAE-J1939 CAN bus communication, position feedback, dynamic braking, low level power switching, and end of stroke outpu.t
These electric linear actuators can handle bidirectional loads up to 10 kN (2250 lbs.) with stroke lengths up to 1000mm (39 inches). This capability allows for a wider range of hydraulic to electric conversion. The design utilizes a high quality ball screw assembly, reducing current draw by up to 20% over previous models. They also offer a range of speed options, up to 75 mm/s (3 in/sec) on some models.
The IP69k (static), IP67 (static) and IP66 (static/dynamic) IP ratings enable maximum performance and continuity in the harshest environments. The actuators operate in temperatures ranging from – 40 to + 85 °C (- 40 to + 185 °F), can withstand salt spray for 200 hours, and are CE, RoHS and REACH (EU) certified.
