Nook Industries (www.nookindustries.com) is proud to introduce the new NIA ACME and Ball Screw Series Linear Actuators that provide compact size configuration and improved IP65 protection options against solid (airborne, dust particles, etc.) and liquid (water spray, rain, etc.) elements. The product is a cost-efficient series designed for light-duty outdoor/indoor applications, including aggregate/agriculture (packaging, dampers in rock quarries, etc.), amongst others.
All of the series are designed to deliver International Protection (IP) rating against levels of water/dust intrusion as an optional enhanced IP65 and standard IP54 protection class. The high-IP ratings were achieved through the use of several design elements, which include powder metallurgy gears, steel extension tube and aluminum alloy housing.
The new series features a standard 110/115/230 VAC single-phase split capacitive motor, delivering a 25-percent duty cycle, as well as an external capacitor. Other standard performance characteristics for ACME and Ball Screw versions include stroke lengths from 4in to 24in, working temperature of -26°C to +65°C, dynamic load capacity of 1,500lbs and less, overload protection by clutch, and self-locking. Adjustable limit switches and optional potentiometer feedback are also available to extend the added-value for unique applications on the two versions.
Nook Industries also offers its ND8 Ball Screw Series as a 12/24V DC Motor option that can deliver similar key design variables with the addition of stroke length of 100mm to 600mm and 65mm/sec maximum speed, with no back driving.
