Motion Control – Hollow Shaft Non-Commutated Actuator.

 

H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA —– Motion Control – H2W introduces its most compact moving magnet actuator with a hole through the shaft. The voice coil actuator (NCM01-04-001-2IBH) can be operated under either open or closed loop position control and is ideal for controlled sinusoidal motion applications (1 to 1000 Hz for open loop applications and 1 to 125 Hz for closed loop applications). The NCM moving magnet type linear actuator has a precision ground 0.125” diameter shaft that is guided by precision manufactured high cycle low-wear plastic bushings. The shaft has a 0.059” hole that goes through the shaft which is ideal for routing a fiber optic cable, passing light through, or routing an air hose for vacuum or pressurized air.

The moving magnet voice coil has a 0.10″ [2.5 mm] stroke, generates 0.1 lbs [0.5 N] of continuous force and 0.3 lbs [1.3 N] of peak force. The actuator is driven in open loop mode by feeding a sinusoidal control signal into a servo amplifier which is in turn connected to the two leads of the actuator. The actuator can also be operated as a closed loop system by adding a programmable motion control and position feedback device.

Features:

  • High frequency operation
  • High acceleration
  • Compact size
  • Custom strokes and force configurations available
