e-Actuator E-MY2 / Rodless actuator

The e-actuator represents a new and impressively simple actuator concept. It combines the favourable properties of rodless compressed air cylinders with those of electric actuators. The learning ability of the control circuitry translates into programme-free operation. You can choose between 6, 5 and 3 positions. With the stroke-study function the actuator learns to stop at the desired intermediate points. Using the rotating switch settings (10 stages) you can easily select the desired speed and acceleration independent of the direction. That’s what the “e” stands for, “e” for easy. The matte metal surfaces, the control unit with rounded operating elements and the black stepper motor fulfil the highest aesthetic criteria.
