Thomson Electrak XD linear actuator handles loads up to 25,000N and operating speeds of up to 75 mm/sec.

Thomson has introduced Electrak XD linear actuator that handles loads up to 25,000 N (5000 lbs), for a combined power output of more than 450W operating speeds of up to 75 mm/sec (3 in/sec). The actuator features shock dampening, as well as manual brake release and override, which enable backdrive under load. With a stroke length up to 1200mm, the unit also features brushless motor technology and regen capability to reduce energy consumption. Its on-board enable control and diagnostics through real-time position feedback, force feedback and control, and programmable end-of-stroke limits. It also supports the CANopen or SAE J1939 CAN bus network that simplifies synchronization of multiple actuators.
