Thomson Industries, Inc. has expanded its WhisperTrak actuator line that double force-handling capability from 2kN to 4kN; provide higher-speed operation at 2kN; and offer new options for low-level switching, limit switching and position control at both 2kN and 4kN operation. The 4kN WhisperTrak offering is rated for 4kN (900 lbs.) with load speed at 4 mm/sec (0.16in/sec). The 2kN version is rated for 2,000kN (450 lbs.) with load speeds of up to 8mm/s (0.31in./sec). All models can be specified for 12- or 24-volt input with stroke lengths available between 100 and 500mm (3.94 to 19.69in.). The added WhisperTrak units feature an IP67 static environmental rating and are ETL listed and conform to medical equipment safety standards AAMISTD-ES60601-1, IEC 60601-1 and CSA CERFTIFIC C22.2 60601.
