Newport Corp. (Irvine, CA) has introduced the TRB motorized actuator series that provides motorized linear motion with up to 25 mm travel in a lightweight package. The actuators are designed as a direct replacement to the micrometers found in manual positioners or other applications requiring a linear pushing motion like deformable mirrors, inserters, or delay lines. The actuators are available in stepper and closed-loop DC servomotor versions. They include fixed integrated optical limit switches to prevent component or motor damage. They also provide a base for repeatable referencing and homing. The actuators include test results and are available with 6-, 12-, and 25-mm linear travel.
