Offering an alternative to hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders, Thomson TN rugged precision linear actuators from Danaher are available with three motor types to meet a variety of application requirements. The TN-D actuator features a cost-effective 24-VDC motor. When combined with a Superior Electric DC control unit, the complete system provides simple extend-retract motion, positioning to pre-determined stopping locations or positioning to an analogue voltage command. The maintenance-free TN-S/P actuator features a stepper motor for applications that require high load and duty cycle, in-position holding, open loop operation and repeatable positioning to 0.0005 in. The TN-B actuator features a brushless servo motor, offering high acceleration and duty cycle for demanding automated motion applications. These easy-to-install units are available in standard stroke lengths up to 18 in. and feature dynamic load capacities up to 600 lb.
