Wainbee can supply Exlar’s Tritex II All-in-One Actuators, the industry’s most compact all-in-one linear and rotary motion actuators. These units feature the latest electronic power technology, combined with advanced thermal management modeling technology. The result is a solution that sets a new benchmark for electric actuator performance versus size.
Key features and advantages
Tritex II actuators integrate an AC powered servo drive, digital position controller, brushless motor and linear or rotary actuator in one compact, sealed package. This combination results in many advantages.
- High power, small footprint. They are the highest power density, smallest footprint servo drive devices on the market, with forces to 4,000 pounds continuous, 10,000 pounds peak, and speeds to 33 inches/second (800 millimetres/second). This unit now allows users to incorporate a fully electronic solution in the space of their existing hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder. Tritex II actuators may also reduce the size of the machine design while offering significant reliability improvement.
- Reduced costs. Because the Tritex II houses the servo drive, digital positioner, and actuator all in one package, the labour costs associated with mounting and wiring the panels are eliminated. Cable costs are also significantly reduced by eliminating the need for expensive, high-maintenance specialty servo cables. All that is required is an economical standard AC power cord, and standard communication cable for digital and analog I/O.
- Flexible communications. Multiple feedback types, including absolute feedback, allow users to select the system that is best suited for their specific application. Digital and analog I/O, plus popular communication networks such as Modbus, Ethernet IP, HART, Modbus TCPIP, CAN Open and CAN J1939, allow the Tritex II to become an integral part of the user’s control architecture or machine control processes.
Exlar Tritex II All-in-One Actuators are available in Canada through Wainbee as part of its lineup of products with efficient designs for optimal performance. For additional details, visit the company’s website.
