Combining a mechanical drive, a guidance, and a stepper motor actuator in a single, compact component, the SplineRail linear actuator, from Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions, comes with an integrated connector. Offered alone or with a harness assembly, the connector, rated for up to 3 A, is RoHS compliant and features a positive latch for high-connection integrity. The mating connector handles a range of wire gauges from 28 to 22 gauge. This configuration is ideal for users who want to plug directly into a preexisting wire harness. The system uses a Size 17 single stack or double stack stepper motor with either a 1.8 or 0.9º motor step angle. Screw leads are available from 1,27 to 30,48 mm per revolution, providing a wide range of performance profiles that include self-locking threads, which can support a load without external power or breaks. Typical applications include pick-and-place mechanisms and robotic assemblies in life sciences instrumentation, semiconductor equipment, business machines, packaging and assembly, and a wide range of factory automation applications. Combined with the company’s broad offering of motion control components, the programmable linear actuator can be used to create custom systems for many types of motion.
