Rod-style actuator with reverse-parallel motor-Tolomatic

The all-in-one electric ICR SmartActuator (programmable digital drive, servomotor, and actuator) is a linear rod-style actuator with a reverse-parallel-mounted motor that delivers up to 720 lb of force for speeds to 5 ips or 150 lb of thrust at speeds to 23 ips. The ICR is stroke-configurable up to 24 in. The motor mounts on top, instead of in-line, to reduce overall actuator length. An ICR Plus version provides programmability, communication options, and other features.

The unit’s steel-reinforced HTD belt transfers force from the motor to the actuator. It can be ordered in either 1:1 or 2:1 drive ratios to deliver either high speed or high power.
Also available is a rear-clevis mount option, which lets the actuator pivot freely on its mounting, replacing existing pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders typically used in this mounting configuration.

The SmartActuator ICR operates on either 24 or 48 Vdc and accepts signals from PLCs, sensors, network communication, or an existing motion controller.
