Integrated Actuator For Simple All-In-One Motion Solution

14 March 2013

Olsen Engineering has launched the new Exlar Tritex II DC TDM/X integrated actuator in the UK.

Already available in AC rotary and linear versions, the new Tritex II can operate from 12, 24, 48 and 60V DC supplies in five different motion modes. It features an integrated energy efficient PM motor, high resolution position controller and amplifier as standard.

The Exlar Tritex II’s built in non-volatile memory stores programmed functions for motion requirements for linear and rotary motion control applications, product configurations and motion parameters. The specially designed, free of charge ‘Expert’ software allows very fast commissioning of actuator applications, configuring position or force control using a 0-10V or 4- 20mA control signal or digital inputs or now even with the new EtherNet IP fieldbus options, amongst others. An Onboard RS/485 interface as standard provides control, programming and monitoring of all aspects of the motor or actuator.

Exlar Tritex II actuators have Class I Division 2 explosion proof rating for hazardous areas, with ATEX certification planned for next year. Ingress protection to IP54 or IP65 is available – in fact Tritex II even passes IP67 tests. Furthermore, subsea variations which can operate to 10,000 feet below sea level are also available.
