PNEUMATIC FORCE ACTUATORS

The Air series pneumatic actuators, used in LiTeM testing machines, have an aluminium housing with chrome-plated stainless steel moving parts, special low sensor gaskets and contactless displacement sensors integrated into the rod for nominally unlimited service life. The device continuously monitors the position of the actuator’s piston with significantly higher precision than that of conventional potentiometer solutions.

Air series actuators output the displacement signal via a 4-pin male M12 connector on the rear of the housing. The air intake fittings are mounted at the opposite end of the housing.
Air series actuators are available with stroke from 50 to 2000 mm and static thrust of 1 to 7 kN, with 1 to 6 kN peak dynamic thrust.
