Electric Actuators – Rod & Guided Rod
The rod type electric actuator has a familiar rod cylinder form suitable for push, pull, lift and press applications. The guide rod type includes rods to counter rotational forces instead of the drive and motor, and also resist shock and sustained lateral loads.
The LEY rod type electric actuator has a familiar rod cylinder form suitable for push, pull, lift and press applications. The 24VDC motor can be reverse mounted for compact length, or inline mounted for compact height. The LEY series offers a wide variety of actuator mounting options as well, including numerous direct and bracket styles.
IP65 IP67 Protection Class
The LEY rod type electric actuator is available in two specifications for improved ingress protection. The X5 option is IP65 dust and drip proof. The X7 option improves to IP67 dust-tight and water jet proof. The X8 option includes IP67 protection as well as a battery-less absolute encoder. For DC motor models, the specs are achieved by enclosing the motor in a sealed aluminum cover with a special cable connector, and pairing the rod with a scraper and lub-retainer. Additionally, the body extrusion includes a vent hole and fitting to balance internal pressure so that dust and water are not drawn in.
The LEYG guided rod electric actuator pairs an LEY actuator with a bolt-on bearing block with double guide rods. The guide rods counter rotational forces instead of the drive and motor, and also resist shock and sustained lateral loads. Guide blocks can be fitted with either slide or ball bushing bearings.
The LEPY is a rod type electric actuator with a miniature form factor, small enough to fit in the palm of your hand! The series includes two body sizes with inline mounted motors. Maximum stroke is 75mm, and maximum work load is 2 kg, or 50N pushing force depending on the application.
