Leading linear motion control systems and turnkey components manufacturer Nook Industries (Cleveland, OH) has recently introduced its NIA ACME and Ball Screw Series Linear Actuators that offers compact size configuration and enhanced IP65 protection options against solid (dust, airborne particles, etc.) and liquid (rain, water spray, etc.) elements. This cost-efficient series is designed for light-duty indoor/outdoor applications such as agriculture/aggregate (dampers in rock quarries, packaging, etc.), amongst others.
NIA Series Design Configuration:
The NIA Series offers a standard 110/115/230 VAC single phase split capacitive motor that delivers a 25% duty cycle. There is no need to purchase an external capacitor because it is supplied. Other standard performance characteristics for both ACME & Ball Screw versions include; dynamic load capacity of 1,500 lbs. and less, stroke lengths from 4″-to-24″, working temp. of -26°C to +65°C, self-locking, and overload protection by clutch. Optional potentiometer feedback and adjustable limit switches are also available to extend added-value for unique applications on both versions.
All of the NIA Series Linear Actuators are designed to deliver IP (International Protection) rating against levels of dust/water intrusion as a standard IP54 and optional enhanced IP65 protection class. Design elements contributing to these high IP ratings include; steel extension tube, powder metallurgy gears, and aluminum alloy housing.
