SMAC Moving Coil Actuators has revealed the details for their dustproof and waterproof, IP65/IP67 product line. SMAC’s IP-rated products include the CBL35/CBL35C series electric cylinder, the CBL50/CBL50C series electric cylinder, the LAL95 series linear actuator, and the LCA50 series linear actuator.
All dustproof and waterproof SMAC moving coil actuators include the ability to do work and give feedback at the same time, as well as SMAC’s patented Soft-Land routine which gives extremely accurate sensing of product location or dimensions. The CBL35C includes a built-in controller and has peak force up to 22 N and a maximum stroke of 25 mm. The CBL50C includes a built-in controller and has a peak force up to 50 N and a maximum stroke of 25 mm. The LAL95 has a peak force of 195 N and a maximum stroke of 50 mm. The LCA50 has a peak force up to 110 N and a maximum stroke of 50 mm.
Actuators rated IP67 are commonly found in food- and beverage-handling equipment that requires frequent washdowns. In these cases, actuator protection requirements are particularly stringent because the equipment is often cleaned with aggressive detergents, as well as washed and rinsed with hot (180 °F), high-pressure (1,500 psi) water spray or steam.
