Microactuator

New Scale Technologies (Victor, NY) has added a smaller, lower-power module to its SQL-M line of SQUIGGLE(R) micro-actuators. The SQL-M-1.8 micro-actuator module measures 13.5 × 4.3 × 4.2 mm – 35 percent smaller than the company’s original SQL-M-3.4 model - and consumes 300 mW when moving. It also has greater power efficiency, higher speed, and longer lifetime (more than 500,000 cycles). The module is less than half the size of solenoids or stepper motors, draws less power, and offers longer stroke with comparable force.
