Versatile Voice Coil Actuator Excels at Accelerating

July 15, 2015
The LAS13-54-001Z Linear Housed Voice Coil Actuator features an integral built-in position sensor and moving magnet design with resolution and force attributes that can accommodate many applications – both size and price are surprisingly small given the performance functions. The tapered styling and size work exceedingly well for medical hand tools and other delicate instrumentation, as well as for remotely controlled circuit breakers and industrial automation applications. The new VCA includes all the inherent advantages of moving magnet technology, which features no moving wires and excellent heat dissipation, while providing moderate speed with controllable, gentle stop points.  The integrated position feedback sensor eliminates the need for OEMs to add any mechanical parts, simplifying customer inventory, production and installation.  And, its voice coil technology offers direct-drive, zero backlash and cog free operation for accurate motion as well as high acceleration and absence of commutation.
