Voice Coil Actuators with integrated position sensor
BEI Kimco introduces its housed voice coil actuator (VCA) with an integrated position sensor. A smart voice coil actuator integrates a position feedback sensor for servo positioning or velocity control. It can be mounted into hand-held wands and used in reciprocal medical applications like skin-abrasion and tissue stimulation.
This servo-ready device is compatible with several controllers. Users can control velocity, position, force, reciprocation, and acceleration in applications such as valve control, beam steering, clamping, and servo-control of the X, Y, and Z axis.
This compact actuator measures 2.5", has a stroke of 0.2", and exerts 17 oz. of force. It offers the following advantages:
- Direct Drive
- Zero Cogging
- Zero Hysteresis
- Infinite Set-ability (limited only by the accuracy of the sensor)
In applications where high speed, high reliability, extreme accuracy, and superior performance are vital, this new actuator and its integrated sensor may be the right match.
Our capabilities include expertise in the integration of complementing components (encoders, resolvers, drives and brakes) into rotary and linear assemblies or motion control systems with proprietary hall-based feedback that brings optimal performance and the realization of lower ownership costs. Quick turn prototyping and 3D software design capabilities are available to enable customers to quickly evaluate BEI Kimco Magnetics' quality and competitive advantage.
