ER Series modular-design, electric rodless actuators are for linear motion applications. The actuators are available in three profile sizes as a belt-driven, acme screw-driven, or ball screw-driven unit. The single-piece, load-bearing carriage is supported either by precision roller bearing wheels or an internally mounted square rail. The series is capable of carrying loads up to 500 lbs, and can achieve speeds of 79 inches/sec for the screw and 200 inches/sec for the belt.
