Simplifying Motion Control

A-LAR-E Series: Closed-loop motorized electric cylinders with built-in stepper motors, motor encoders, and controllers

  • 200 or 300 mm travel
  • 540 N peak thrust
  • Up to 40 mm/s speed
  • Lead screw driven
  • Inline and parallel drive configurations
  • Encoder position feedback with slip/stall detection and automatic recovery
  • Built-in controller; daisy-chains with other A-Series and T-Series products

Zaber's A-LAR-E Series products are computer-controlled, lead screw driven, motorized electric cylinders with integrated motor encoders. They are stand-alone units requiring only a standard 48 V power supply. Each device is available in either an inline or parallel drive configuration. A built-in motor encoder allows closed-loop operation and slip/stall recovery features. An indexed knob provides convenient manual control for versatile operation even without a computer.

These actuators connect to the RS-232 port of any computer and can be chained with up to 254 units per chain. They can also be chained with any other A-Series or T-Series products. Convenient 6-pin mini din cables on the unit allow for direct interconnection between units in close proximity. For longer distances, standard cable extension can be used.

Zaber's positioners with built-in controllers, stand-alone controllers, and joysticks are divided into three series: the T-Series, the A-Series, and the X-Series. Please refer to our Series Reference Table for more information.
