FORCE Control lineup

Product Overview

New product lineup not only for position control, but also for dynamic force and speed control
Built-in drive circuit, position sensor, DC motor and gear box
Suitable for customers who need both force and speed control as well as position control
12mm diameter coreless motor lineup, 17mm diameter coreless motor or BLDC motor lineup
17mm diameter DC motor version will be released later. Generally, large motor diameter provides stronger force and better durability.
The lifespan of BLDC motors is better than that of Coreless motors.
27/40/53/90mm stroke option
Rated Load of 12N ~ 100N according to gear ratio for each stroke
Speed ​​is inversely proportional to Rated Load, so the stronger the Rated Load, the slower the speed.
Support RS-485 or TTL / PWM communication
TTL / PWM communication version operates by automatically recognizing the input TTL / PWM signal.
When using PWM communication, only the position command is available while feedback data cannot be received.

Standard Accessories

Hinge : Hinge is rotatable by 90degree according to the mounting condition.
Without hinge, actuator can be mounted using IR-MB02 (for 27mm stroke version) or IR-MB03(for 41/56/96mm stroke version) Metal brackets.
Also, IR-EB01 Rod end bearing is also one of mounting option. Please refer to the mounting manual for each accessory.
Socket head bolts are not included in 27mm stroke version. (they are for 41/56/96mm stroke versions.)
IR-MB03 metal bracket or IR-EB01 Rod end bearing can be another mounting option.
Rod-end tip and Socket-set screw can be used according to user’s need.
Or, user may apply their own rod-end tip(M3 standard). Make sure to put M3 nut before applying rod-end tip.
The M3 nut is a double nut concept for angle adjustment of rod-end tip mounting.
When mounting rod-end tip, make sure to fix the M3 nut and the rod-end tip by the tool(such as long nose) to set angle and to prevent the rod from turning together. (If not, it may cause damage to the product. The rod should not be turned all the time.)
