Follow The Easy Guideline And Choose A Proper Linear Actuator
With so many different manufacturers, models and options, selecting the right electro mechanical linear actuator for your application can be overwhelming. This article will walk you through the selection process step by step and help you narrow down your choice. There are numerous diverse models, manufacturers, and options available; so finding the correct electro mechanical linear actuator is very difficult for your system. Here is a checklist that can help in selecting right linear actuators.
It is important that electric actuator must be able to generate adequate force. So you should first identify how much force is required for your work. Any linear actuator which is not able to generate sufficient force must be discarded. Decide how fast you need to move. Not only can you rule out any actuators that are too fast or too slow, the speed combined with the force from step one will give you an idea of the mechanical power required and generally how powerful the motor must be. Next it must be analyze, how distant actuator desires to travel, which is commonly called as stroke length. It is good to follow standard catalog options like two inch increments.
ou must not forget to verify the duty cycle rating of your other options. There are chances that many electric actuators do not work continuously without being overheating except for high end servo units. Now look for power supply options requirement. A battery power-driven system will perhaps need a DC motor rated similar as the battery voltage. But, AC power-driven system need not necessarily require an AC motor as AC is so easily transformed to any DC voltage.
Extreme temperatures and outdoor environment are the other important factor to be considered as most of electric actuator can work good in indoor conditions but perform poor in outdoor environment. Many times it is simpler to provide a modest external protection to the unit rather to search one that has accurate ingress protection rating which can fall on your additional requirements. It is also requires to be flexible while selecting options like built-in limit switches/position feedback devices like potentiometers, encoders, etc.
When you are evaluating linear actuators from several of manufacturers, normalizing the life ratings will show the distinction in finding product selection. Every manufacture with good reputation can provide you linear actuator life travel ratings when subjected to maximum loads. Asking above questions can help you to find good a reliable product.
