Linear Actuators - Motorized Cylinders

.
EAC Series Linear Actuators and Cylinders

Linear Actuators - EAC Series Motorized Cylinders

The EAC Series motorized linear cylinders are quick and responsive and incorporate a ball screw design, offering high performance from low speed to high speed or with light loads or heavy loads, regardless of demanding operating conditions. Available in a straight type or reversed motor type and with a shaft guide and cover version also available, saves design time and parts. All EAC Series are available with an electromechanical brake ideal for vertical operations.

The EAC Series is equipped with the AR Series motor and driver package which means a common drive platform for many actuator type applications.

RoHSPackages include 3 m (9.8 ft.) connection cables.

Advanced Search

Compact, High Thrust Linear Actuator

Using aluminum for the rod, these motorized cylinders produce high thrust force despite their compact and lightweight body. The unique structure suppresses vibration to achieve improved acceleration characteristics and high-speed positioning operation.

Construction

Shaft Guide and Cover

There is no need to design or procure parts for the external guide. Moving parts on the cylinder main unit side are protected, improving equipment safety. This is useful for grease splash prevention in the shaft guide section and the prevention of the infiltration of foreign particles in the linear bush section.

Shaft Guide and Cover

Direction of Motor Installation

Reversed Motor types are provided for all linear actuators. This contributes to a shorter overall length and space savings. EAS Series shown.

Motor Direction

Quick & Responsive

The high response of the closed loop motor and drive system provides superior short-distance positioning.

Since the AlphaStep AR Series operates synchronously with pulse commands and generates high torque with a compact body, it offers excellent acceleration performance and response

Quick Response

Capable of a Variety of Movements

Offering the ability from low speed to high speed or with light loads or heavy loads, these linear actuators are easier to use and offer high performance regardless of demanding operating conditions.

High-speed is possible with light loads or heavy loads, or even during inching operations.

Simple Maintenance for Reversed Motor Type

Maintainability has been improved by using Oriental Motor's unique belt tension adjustment mechanism and through the standardization of maintenance parts based on the AR Series.

Thanks to Oriental Motor's unique belt tension adjustment mechanism, belt replacement is easy.

Simple Maintenance

If the screw is loosened, the belt tension is adjusted to an appropriate value by the force of the spring.
The above diagram shows a mechanism on the EAS Series reversed motor section. The mechanism for the EAC Series is the same.


Cable Outlet DirectionCable Direction

Motor cable can be changed to any direction* by simply rotating the motor. There is no need to leave space behind the motor since the cable outlet is on one side of the motor, allowing for easy connection and saving space.

*3 directions for Reversed Motor types


 

Application Example

The image below shows a three axes system using the motorized linear slide EAS Series on the X-Y axis and the motorized cylinder EAC Series on the Z axis.

Application Example

Common Motor and Driver

AlphaStep AR Series Type

The EAS Series linear actuators are equipped with the AlphaStep AR Series motor and driver package which means a common drive platform for many actuator type applications.

All products in the AR Series group have unified controllability.

AR Series stepper motor and driver

Alarm Signal Output in Case of Abnormality

If an overload is applied continuously, an alarm signal is output. When the positioning is complete, an END signal is output.

No Tuning

The AlphaStep AR Series requires no tuning to operate. Because of its construction, there is no hunting or dithering when stopped. When required, it utilizes the "Built-in Rotor Position Detection Sensor" to maintain commanded position.

Energy Saving

Power Consumption is 66% less compared to conventional Oriental Motor closed loop motors.

Power Consumption

Lower Hear Generation and Continuous Operation

The use of high-efficiency technology enables significant reduction in heat generation and allows for continuous operation.

Lower Heat

Distance Between Motor and Driver Extendable Up to 98.4 ft. (30 m)

The included cable or the optional cables (sold separately) can be used to extend the distance to a maximum of 30 m (98.4 ft.). Flexible cables are also available as an option (sold separately).

Packages include 3 m (9.8 ft.) connection cables.


 

Extended Functions

Extended Functions

The data setting software* and the optional control module enables response to parameter changes, alarm history display and a variety of monitoring to be customized to the needs of the customer.

*Cable for connection to PC required for data setting software (sold separately** - see Accessories).

**One FREE CC05IF-USB communications cable is available per customer, contact Technical Support for more information.


Data Setting Software

MEXE02 Data Setting Software

Easy to use data setting software enables data setting and verification of the actual drive by using a computer.

The data setting software can be downloaded from the website. A CD-ROM is also available.

Data Setting Software

Operating Data and Parameter Settings

Operating data and parameter settings can be easily carried out on the computer. Since data settings can be stored, when exchanging a driver, simply transfer the stored data to create the same settings.

Operating Data

Teaching and Remote Operation

Data setting software can be used to drive the motor. This can be used for teaching or test drive purposes.

Teaching

I/O Monitoring

The state of I/O wiring to the driver can be verified by computer. This can be used for post-wiring I/O checks or I/O checks during operation.

I/O Monitoring

Waveform Monitoring

The operational state of the motor (such as command speed and motor load factor), can be checked by an oscilloscope-like image. This can be used for equipment start-up and adjustment.

Waveform Monitoring

Alarm Monitoring

When any abnormality arises, the content of the abnormality and the countermeasure can be verified.

Alarm Monitoring

Control Module

OPX-2A Control Module

The data setting software and the control module can both be used together with the AR Series.
