The rotational energy, produced by the electric motor, will be converted
into a linear movement by the ACME or Ball Screw installed within the
thrust unit. ACME screws are typically self-locking. Based on a low lead
selection and the resulting large surface area between the nut and the
screw provides a robust power transfer assembly and a high
capability for shock loading. Static loads, which can always be higher than the nominal
thrust, can be safely maintained in all positions. Different leads for
the screw can be easily produced to influence the behavior of power
transfer between the motor and the thrust rod which will change the rod
speed, thrust capability and efficiency.
Higher leads, however, do not have the self-locking feature, so the
actuator will be equipped with an electro-magnetic brake to maintain
Inherent to the Ball Screw design, the contact between the ball nut and the ball screw are point to point connections provided by a number of re-circulating high precession balls. The rolling friction of the balls is extremely low compared to the sliding friction of the ACME screw. Therefore the power transfer between the rotating shaft of the electrical motor and the linear thrust at the ball nut has an efficiency higher then 95%. The benefits include: a higher duty cycle, longer lifetime, extended ambient temperature range, smaller drive motor, starter and infrastructure due to the high efficiency, and an extremely high position accuracy and repeatability. In combination with a spring package, counter weight or other means which would provide a source of stored energy, a defined failsafe position can be obtained in case of a electrical power loss or other mechanical interruption or failure.
RACO offers a wide variety of drive motors for different operating conditions. The enclosure offers an ideal solution for every industrial application. Because of the flexibility of RACO's Compact Systems, choosing an industrial motor is a simple process. These motors are the perfect compliment to the wide variety of RACO industrial motor solutions.
A wide variety of RACO product control equipment is available for the Compact Series Actuators. Control availability include the following products: limit switches and starters, including relays, potentiometers, and inductive transmitters. Special items like non-contact position speed sensors, and controllers are available. Position control and feedback devices are designed with an emphasis on industry standard reliability. Both analog and digital feedback devices are provided for reliable feedback of your application. The adjustable limit switches are fully enclosed in a sealed and protected compartment. This compartment is integrated into the RACO actuators for long life and durability.
