NEW: Micro Linear Actuators with Built-in Controllers and Motor Encoders

Zaber's X-NA-E Series devices are computer-controlled, motorized linear actuators with high thrust and speed capabilities and a compact size. They are stand-alone units requiring only a standard 24 V or 48 V power supply. The built-in motor encoder allows closed-loop operation and slip/stall recovery features. An optional indexed knob provides convenient manual control for versatile operation even without a computer.

These actuators connect to the RS-232 port or USB port of any computer, and they can be daisy-chained with any other Zaber products. The daisy-chain also shares power, making it possible for multiple X-Series products to share a single power supply. Convenient locking, 4-pin, M8 connectors on the unit allow for secure connection between units. At only 20 mm high, these miniature actuators are excellent for applications where a small profile is required. Like all of Zaber's products, the X-NA-E Series is designed to be 'plug and play' and very easy to set up and operate.
