System offers happy medium between cylinders and servos
This system integrates electronics, precision mechanics, feedback, control and software into one package. It allows multple-position control, made for situations where a pneumatic cylinder doesn't offer enough and a servo is too complex or expensive. They can be used on a Profibus DP, CanOpen or DeviceNet fieldbus, with simultaneous starting through both parallel and serial control.
