Tolomatic, Hamel, MN, has introduced the ICR Basic rodstyle actuator, an all-in-one linear actuator integrating servomotor, drive, controller, and actuator. Requiring only a DC power source and motion inputs from the host PLC, the actuator can directly replace pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders in packaging, material handling, machine tool, and general industrial automation applications. Force and speed control are adjustable via potentiometer.

The actuator operates on either 24 or 48Vdc. It is stroke configurable and provides 100 percent duty cycle durability for low-to-medium force applications. Maximum stroke length is 24in. Two screws can be selected, providing up to 80 pounds continuous force for speeds up to 9in./sec.
