UK based motion specialist is now stocking the push-rod style Electrak Pro durable linear actuators
Heason Technology Stocking Electrak Pro Linear Actuators
Thomson Elektrak Pro series push-rod style linear actuators are now available from West Sussex based motion specialist Heason Technology. Characterised by its extreme durability, toughness and compactness, the DC motor driven Electrak Pro is available in Acme leadscrew or ballscrew versions with a broad range of options making it equally suited for simple open loop load actuation or sophisticated closed loop control.

The CE certified Electrak Pro series is supplied in choice of 12 or 24 VDC input as standard or optional 36 VDC, allowing flexibility for battery or DC power supply operation. The actuator's maximum stroke length is 300 mm with a dynamic load rating of 2000N for the ballscrew version and 750N for the lead screw option. With no-load speeds to 50 mm/sec and a 25 percent full load duty cycle, the Electrak Pro's performance will meet the requirements for a wide range of actuator applications for industry, agriculture, construction, medical, H & V and many more.

An attractive 'clam shell' cast aluminium housing with a stainless steel extension shaft and support tube combine for a smart design for applications where the actuator is externally mounted such as medical or laboratory lift equipment. The Electrak Pro is rated for IP66 operation with an optional IP67 version for liquid immersion protection. The housing and its integral electrical connector are fully gasket sealed and together with an operating temperature range of -40C to +85C, the actuator is well suited for use in hostile indoor and outdoor environments where washdown and spray is frequent. The compact size of the actuator allows installation in restricted spaces with an unextended length of around 250 mm for the leadscrew version.

As standard, electronic limit switches are fitted for over-travel protection and a load holding brake is included for the ballscew version. Further standard options include an electronic load monitor that checks critical parameters and shuts down the actuator if they are exceeded. The front and rear clevis mounting is straightforward for installation and removal, and in the event of power failure, an integral manual override is easily accessed with a 5 mm Allen key for fast hand-operated position adjustment.

To suit the widest range of applications, the Electrak Pro series is available with a number of options and accessories. These include position feedback from a choice of optical encoder or a potentiometer which can also be used as a part of a signal follower option that allows the actuator to track position from a customer provided analogue input. A programmable limit switch option is available to modify the usable stroke length via a hand held pendant which may be removed after set-up to prevent unauthorised changes. In addition, a PWM speed control option interfaces load monitoring system with a customer supplied PWM input for variable speed control. The actuator can also be supplied in a protective black paint finish if required.

As a Premier Partner distributor for Thomson, Heason Technology can also supply fully customised versions of the Electrak Pro together with controls as complete system solutions. The Premier Partner programme aims to ensure a high level of service and support with regular training, competitive pricing and recommended inventory levels for all participating distribution partners. Heason Technology's in-house design capability matches products from its distribution partners with its own expertise in motion control and automation to provide customised electro-mechanical solutions for challenging applications across, aerospace, automotive, defence, robotics, process control, packaging, motorsports and many more.
