The Electric Actuator, combines an electric motor, gear, push rod and guidance to provide a simple solution to many different actuation requirements.
These actuators are telescopic and use a push tube using either a lead screw, ball screw or roller screw. They are complete with a basic electric motor, (typically 24v DC or 12v DC, but AC versions are also available) and gear to provide a fixed choice of speed and force. They usually have strokes in the 50mm – 700mm range, with forces from 50N to 500kN (from high performance versions). Electric actuators are used where the duty cycle is typically in the 10-25% range. ACORN offers a full range of AC and DC electric actuators and accessories.
