SMC has introduced a line of actuators driven by 24VDC step motors fitted with battery-less absolute encoders. An absolute encoder offers position data upon power-on, avoiding the homing routine an incremental encoder requires. Our battery-less absolute encoder pairs orientation sensors with differently sized rotating wheels to enable position detection. This electro-mechanical design eliminates the battery and its accompanying import and disposal restrictions common to traditional absolute encoders. A battery-less solution is also free of memory retention limits from extended power-off situations.
StabiliZRTM gauges are dry gauges that come with a StabiliZRTM dampened movement that eliminates pointer flutter caused by vibration and pulsation. This makes pressure reading much easier. No more worries of fill fluid leaking and compatibility issues with the process media. Gauges can easily be serviced without the hassle of draining and then refilling the case with fill fluid
The S-series SMART Hydraulic Actuator (SHA) combines proven technologies into an innovative new actuation product. The SHA offers significant advantages compared with hydraulic cylinder actuators or high-force Electro-Mechanical ball screw / roller screw actuators including:
