PCA Series Compact Actuator

Overview

PCA SERIES COMPACT ACTUATOR OVERVIEW

PCA SERIES COMPACT ACTUATOR

DX20B, DX30B & DX50B



PCA Compact Actuator - Cost Effective Solution

Compact Modular actuators assembled onto the magnet tracks of DX20, DX30 and DX50 series product. Its space saving and compact design offers clients a cost effective solution to fit into spaces where a standard linear servo actuator would not fit before.

Due to its lightweight nature, this actuator is highly suitable for use in multi-axis configurations where mass is of concern, especially suitable for Z axis applications.

Configurable with either digital or analogue encoders, PCA systems can achieve 80mm resolution in tandem with PBA Maxtune drives.
