Miniature Linear Actuator, 28 mm travel, RS-232 control, vacuum compatible
Specification Charts and Notes
- When powering multiple units from an unregulated power supply such as our
the voltage and thus the available thrust will be reduced. To achieve
the thrust specified above, each unit should have its own power supply.
- The suffix "S"
designates a short unit. Manual control and LED indicators have been sacrificed
on these units in favour of reduced length. All other specifications are
identical to the standard unit.
T-LA actuators don't require hold current to maintain their position.
- Thrust is a function of speed. The values given are typical maximums. See performance curves
below for more details.
- The T-LA is more delicate and has a limited lifetime compared to the T-NA08. See the image below for a lifetime vs thrust comparison.
Note that the failure mode of T-LA devices is grease
contamination by wear particles which effectively clog the lead nut, although the
leadscrew and leadnut remain in healthy condition. Extending the leadscrew,
cleaning it, and regreasing it with a silicon based grease effectively solves
the problem; however, this may not be feasible in all applications.

Manual and/or the Technical Notes.
