Miniature linear positioner for lab automation
The Parker LCR has been designed for OEM instrument manufacturers and laboratory instrument applications.
The fine lead screw offers higher resolution and higher thrust with lower motor torque.
It also provides users with a higher speed solution and screw drive positioning capabilities.
As an alternative to the screw driven options there is the LCR belt drive which is perfect for high speed motion or long travel (up to 1m) applications.
Pairing these drive technologies with the different bearing designs (square rail or glider bushing), the LCR offers a complete miniature linear positioner with a sealed body design.
The major features of the LCR are: 22, 30, and 45mm frame sizes, stepper or servo motor options, an integrated drive option, rugged square rail design or economical slider bushing design.
There is also an encoder feedback option, direct inline or parallel motor mounting options, cables connectors fitted for ease of installation and they are RoHS compliant (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive).
The positioners are ideal for OEM instrument manufacturers looking for significant ROI from an off-the-shelf yet tailor-made solution. This is a complete package which includes amplifier/drive (integrated drive option), motor, actuator, bearings, seals and limit sensors.
For example the Ion Series stepper drive is an OEM-friendly miniature motion drive capable of up to 2 amps in a 25 x 25 x 85mm square package.
The run current is adjustable via a potentiometer, it has auto standby adjustable current to reduce heat generation and power consumption and the stepper resolution is available to 3200 steps per rev.
It is DIN rail mountable or mounts directly to the LCR Series linear positioners and RoHS compliant.
The Motornet DC is a compact brushless servomotor for flexible and modular mechatronic solutions.
Using the ARM11 processor, the MC405 provides up to 4 axes of servomotor plus a master encoder.
Micromech has launched an ultra compact, robust 0.45Nm brushless servomotor for complex operations.
The series of ETH electro-thrust cylinders delivers up to 5 times the force and 10 times the life of the previous ET.
Micromech is now offering the Parker’s Compax3 servo drives with EtherCAT which is an open motion-bus network.
