What exactly is a "harsh environment"? A harsh environment is characterised by extremes of heat/cold, moisture, vibration/shock, vacuum, radiation etc. Despite these extreme conditions, motion control systems comprising motors and drives must be able to continue functioning reliably. A typical customer requirement might look like this:
"The electrical actuator must remain fully-functional, even at temperatures down to -140°C. Can it be done ?"
Maccon is specialised in the design of motors and drive electronics for extreme environments. The customer requirement just described can only be fulfilled by a experienced company like Maccon, which has been developing such hardware for more than three decades. We actually did build a cryo-actuator for -140°C which can be seen in the image to the right.
The key features of the actuator are as follows:
- Linear actuator with low backlash leadscrew
- Compact design 60x75x58mm
- Force > ±200N
- Continuous holding force > ±1,200N
- Stroke ± 5mm
- Speed 5 to 20 mm/min
- Resolution < 0.001mm
- Accuracy < 0.05mm
- Resolver feedback
- Ambient temperature -140°C
We can develop motors and drives for extreme conditions exactly according to your specifications.
