Brochure Explores Smart Linear Actuation Benefits, Applications



Thomson Industries, Inc. has published a new brochure that educates industrial automation users on the emerging role of smart actuators in meeting their demands for greater connectivity, application flexibility and cost efficiency.

"The brochure explores, with help from 10 pages of detailed 3-D application renderings, the unique values to machine builders to be gained from smart actuators, their use in off-highway vehicles, factory automation and material handling," said a company spokesperson. Also included are highlights of the Thomson Electrak HD, Electrak Throttle and WhisperTrak smart actuation products designed to deliver these benefits.

Titled Thomson Electrak Smart Linear Actuators (Electromechanical Solutions for Intermittent Duty Cycle Automation), the illustrated 28-page brochure delves into the defining competencies of smart actuation. These include the ability to perform traditionally external control functions such as switching, position feedback and system diagnostics directly within the actuator housing, and support for J1939 network connectivity.

Almost half of the document is devoted to how smart actuators deliver value to a widening range of industries, such as factory and structural automation, domestic, office and hospital equipment, material handling and construction and agricultural equipment.

The brochure also examines those Thomson actuators that meet the "smart" definition:

  • Electrak HD linear actuators for conversion from hydraulic to smart electric applications.
  • Electrak throttle linear actuators optimized for easy-to-install and ergonomic engine speed control, based on the state of the vehicle.
  • WhisperTrak linear actuators are quiet, small-footprint solutions ideal for medical, personal mobility, material handling, marine and structural automation applications.
