The Thompson Electrak Pro electromechanical linear actuators from Danaher Motion target mobile off-highway applications that need compact, low maintenance, robust actuation systems. These electromechanical actuators have a host of features including a electronic load monitoring, low-voltage power switching, programmable limit switches, signal follower input and PWM speed control monitoring. Available with ball or acme screws, these actuators have input voltages of 12 and 24V dc. they hand maximum static loads of 1,500 lb in the acme screw version and 4,000 lb for the ball screw model. The respective dynamic loads are 750 lb and 2,000 lb Maximum stroke for both models is 12 inches and both have been designed for the shortest possible retracted length, allowing used in cramped quarters.
One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicleís parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
Most of us would just as soon step on a cockroach rather than study it, but thatís just what researchers at UC Berkeley did in the pursuit of building small, nimble robots suitable for disaster-recovery and search-and-rescue missions.
Design engineers need to prepare for a future in which their electronic products will use not just one or two, but possibly many user interfaces that involve touch, vision, gestures, and even eye movements.
