Analog ATEX-Certified Rotary Encoders for use in Explosive Atmospheres
Encoders for Hazardous Locations
POSITAL analog ATEX-certified absolute encoder is designed to operate safely in atmospheres where there are potentially dangerous levels of explosive gases or dust. These devices are part of the IXARC family of magnetic rotary sensors and are available in single- or multiturn versions. Rugged, reliable and highly accurate, these devices can be ordered with a wide range of mounting and coupling options that ensure that they can be installed in zones 1 and 21 (as defined from the ATEX directive).Learn More

New Torque Motor Family from Tecnotion
Tecnotion adds QTR Frameless Torque Motors to its direct drive product offering. With low axial height and high torque density, the QTR bridges the size-performance gap.
Direct Drive Motors, also known as Torque Motors, are permanent-magnet direct drive motors that rotate along an axis. They can be used wherever a rotary movement is required and offer numerous advantages over conventional servo drives.Learn More
Introducing Akribis Systems’ Voice Coil Motors & Voice Coil Position Actuators
A "voice coil" is a generalized term that refers to any galvanometer-like mechanism that uses a solenoid to move an object back-and-forth within a magnetic field.
Voice coil actuators, or non-commutated DC linear actuators, consist of a permanent magnetic field assembly (permanent magnets and ferrous steel) and a coil assembly. The current flowing through the coil assembly interacts with the permanent magnetic field and generates a force vector perpendicular to the direction of the current. The force vector can be reversed by changing the polarity of current flowing through the coil.Learn More
Hollow-shaft frameless motor technology with the ease of installation of a full-frame motor
This direct drive motor from Kollmorgen is the first in the industry to blend the space-saving and performance benefits of a frameless DDR system with the ease of installation of a full-frame motor.
Consisting of a rotor, stator, and factory-aligned high-resolution feedback device, the Cartridge Motor uses the machine's bearings to support the rotor, saving space and design time and simplifying the overall system.
NEW online configurable DC servo motors and gearheads
Maxon Motor AG announces the release of their new DCX series, a family of online configurable DC servo motors and gearheads. These brushed DC motors feature high power density and low vibration. Motors, gearheads and encoders may be selected and ordered online.
After only 11 working days, even complex motor configurations are ready to be shipped. Detailed product data can be viewed online and 3D data for a user-specified configuration is available for immediate downloading.
New HPF Hollow Shaft Planetary Gear from Harmonic Drive®
The HPF Precision Hollow Shaft Planetary Gear features a large coaxial hollow shaft allows cables, shafts, ball screws or lasers to pass directly through the axis of rotation. The HPF also incorporates a large output flange for mounting the driven load.
The precision HPF planetary gear is also available in our SHA Series Hollow Shaft Brushless Actuators as a standard product. The low ratio planetary gear allows the SHA actuator to achieve higher speeds yet still deliver precise positioning.
Integrated ROBO Cylinder® From Intelligent Actuator Inc.
The Robo Cylinder ® is a flexible, intelligent, and economical, ballscrew linear. Economical and easy to use, the Robo Cylinder® is specifically designed to accomplish the simple tasks usually assigned to air cylinders, but with greater flexibility and control.
Offering custom control over position, speed, acceleration, deceleration, and torque, allowing for mid-move velocity changes, and control from a PLC, the Robo Cylinder® is a versatile and easy-to-use alternative to pneumatic cylinders.
