Intelligent Electromechanical Linear Actuators


Electrak MD is a compact electromechanical actuator that retains all of the intelligence built into its larger counterparts. Mobile off-highway, material handling, and factory automation applications can benefit from the compact actuator with up to 2 kN of force, advanced onboard electronics, and J1939 CAN Bus support.


The Electrak MD comes with onboard intelligence which enhances the overall performance and eliminates space consumption by keeping any external equipment like encoders and switches within the actuator housing. As with its predecessor, the Electrak HD, this functionality provides a simpler method of control and communication, which minimizes operating costs and simplifies setup and installation.


In addition to the above benefits, the actuator also features extensive automation and maintenance enablers such as feedback on position, J1939 CAN bus communication, low-current switching (PLC compatibility), and end-of-stroke indication output.


Many design engineers are often faced with the challenge of meeting size constraints while maintaining high force requirements. For example, with applications on a harvesting combine, past designs were cavernous enough to allow a large amount of space for hydraulic solutions to actuate the equipment with high force.  Now, equipment manufacturers are tasked with reducing the overall footprint and adding functionality, resulting in an increased demand for more compact components such as the power-dense and intelligent Electrak MD.
