Plug & Work: EleCylinder with Built-in Controller
EleCylinder is the latest generation of electric actuators for simple, fast and cost-effective transition to pneumatic-free manufacturing. With only two end positions, these offer the same scope of performance as the pneumatic actuators.
Thanks to the built-in controller, these actuators can be programmed very easily and also perform slow uniform speeds over the entire travel path. Even soft starting or braking are no longer a problem here.
Efficiency from 60% to 90% higher than pneumatic cylinders
Various scientific studies have already provided evidence that a savings potential of up to 90 percent can be realized when replacing pneumatic positioning systems with electromechanical ones. The generation and distribution of compressed air is associated with very high losses, which can only be optimised to a limited extent due to technological limitations.
The new EleCylinder actuators operate quietly, are almost maintenance-free and offer increased production reliability, as the function cannot be changed by unauthorised third parties.
Fast and easy programming
With integrated controllers EleCylinder actuators are very easy to program and depending on the application, process-speeds, acceleration and braking cycles are specified as well as the actual positions.
Like all electrical actuators, the new EleCylinders can effortlessly maintain slow, unfluctuating speeds throughout the entire stroke.
Radial Cylinder - for radial and eccentric loads
The radial cylinder is equipped with a built-in ball circulating type linear guide in the rod body. No external guide is required, as both radial loads and eccentric loads can be applied.
Since it has a built-in linear guide and the rod is supported by the guide, there is no runout to the tip. It can be used even in narrow spaces to save overall space because there is no need for an external guide.
Wireless communication via touch panel
In combination with the EleCylinder series the touch panel "TB-03" can communicate wirelessly with the new electrical actuators. The user benefits from the ability to easily reprogram actuators which are concealed behind fixed covers externally at any time.
