LOW-COST IRONLESS LINEAR POSITIONER
Parker’s Electromechanical Automation Division has announced additions to its series of Trilogy I-Force positioners. Built around the 110 model of Trilogy’s I-Force ironless motors, the T1D and T1S are said to include everything needed for motion except the drive and controller.
The positioners have selectable single- or dual-square rail bearings to match the performance and cost requirements for each application. In addition, units are designed to connect together using transition plates for XY or multi-axis configurations. Options include a variety of cable management systems, optical or magnetic encoders and drive connectorization. The positioners can be used with Parker Compax3, Aries, Gemini and ViX drives and are also compatible with most third-party drives (except Yaskawa).
