Linear Actuators - EZ LIMO Motorized Cylinders (Guide Type)

.
EZA Series

Motorized Cylinders - EZA Series

The EZA Series, with a built-in LM Guide®, is a motorized cylinder offering improved performance and greater ease of use while maintaining a compact size. Simply install a load directly onto the rod, and this motorized cylinder will perform the push-motion and transfer operations. The EZA Series employs an AlphaStep stepper motor and controller system for tuning-free, closed loop operation.

 

Safety MarksAdvanced Search


High Thrust Force

These models are ideal for applications where the load is pushed (pressured) directly or with a pressure jig such as a die set used on a press machine.

High Thrust Force

Large Transportable Mass

The load can be transported directly without using an external guide.

Large Transportable Mass

Space Saving

The shape of the motor cable outlet was changed to eliminate dead space. The total length of the cylinder is shorter for every stoke or model, which enables space-saving design of your equipment.

Built-in LM Guide®

The LM Guide® is housed within the motorized cylinder and as a result the EZA Series achieves a compact size and provides greater ease of use.

Construction

No External Guide Required

There is no need for a guide mechanism such as an external guide. This cylinder provides a direct way to perform transferring of a load and a push-motion (pressurized) operation.

No Guide

Stroke Lengths

A desired stroke can be selected in 50 mm increments.

Supporting Sudden Load Fluctuation and Rapid Acceleration

Rotor Detection Sensor

Adopting a closed loop AlphaStep stepper motor designed to maintain synchronism, the EZA Series actuator eliminates the need for tuning to prevent hunting upon sudden load fluctuation or rapid acceleration.

A built-in rotor position detection sensor constantly monitors the motor speed and position. If synchronism is about to be lost, closed-loop control is implemented immediately. With the EZA Series you can also enjoy greater reliability because the positioning completion signal and position detection function can be used to check the actuator condition.

Stable operation can be achieved without adjustment, even when your equipment is subject to load fluctuation.

Electromagnetic Brake Available

The EZA Series has an electromagnetic brake option, pre-assembled to the back of the motor. The electromechanical brake option is ideal for vertical applications. A separate circuit to control the brake is not required. The electromagnetic brake is released (OFF) when the motor start input is activated and applied (ON) when the motion is stopped.

 

Common Controller

Common Controller

The controller is capable of controlling a linear slide or cylinder, without tuning.

It lets you use high-performance functions through simple operations. Your controller can also be used as a driver for pulse signal controls.

Up to 63 Points of Positioning Data can be set with Ease

Positioning data can be set in one of three methods, as specified below (when the controller is used in Controller Mode)

1. Enter the desired travel amount (mm) directly.

Set data

2. Direct teaching

Move the table or the rod to the target position manually and store the achieved position as positioning data.

Direct teaching

3. Remote teaching

Move the table or the rod to the target position using a teaching pendant or data editing software and store the achieved position as positioning data.

Remote teaching

Choice of Incremental or Absolute Option

The controller can be used as an absolute system by connecting an optional battery set (sold separately).

Choose the absolute option if you want to start operation from the current position rather than the home position, when the power is turned on, or in the event of a power failure.

Incremental / Absolute Option

Controller Key

A removable controller key is used to store the parameters for the various models. This means that the same controller can be used with the EZS II Series, SPV Series, EZC II Series, EZA Series and PWA II Series.

Controllerr Key

Two Positioning Data Settings

You can set positioning data in the absolute mode or incremental mode, depending on your preferred movement of the equipment.

Absolute Mode (Absolute-position specification):

Each position is set as the absolute position with respect to the reference point. This is suitable when you want to move the work directly from an arbitrary position to a specified position.

Absolute Mode

Incremental Mode (Relative-position specification):

Each position is relative, being set as an amount of travel from the current position or another target position for the work.

This is done is a regular feed or other operation where the same pattern is used repeatedly

Incremental Mode

Two Data Execution Modes

Selective Positioning Mode

The set data can be selected at random

Selective Positioning

Sequential Positioning Mode

Positioning operation is performed sequentially from the desire data.

Sequential Positioning

Push-Motion Function

The rod can be held in a state of being pushed against the load or similar object, as with an air cylinder. the force used to push the load (push force) can be changed.

Push Motion

Area Output Function

A signal is output when the linear slide table or the cylinder rod enters a set area arbitrarily set along the stroke. One set area can be set.

Area Output Function

Linked Operation

Up to four operation data can be linked, thereby allowing the actuator to change speeds without stopping.

Linked Operation

*Data with the same operation direction can be linked.

Choice of Two Return to Home Methods

Sensorless Return to Home (only for EZS II / EZC II / EZA Series)

Return to home is performed without the use of home sensors. The home position and return to home speed (maximum of 100 mm/s) can be adjusted and the direction of return to home can also be changed.

Return to Home Using Sensors

Return to home is performed using home sensors. With SPV Series, sensors are included with the product.

Output of Current Position and Error Code

The current position, error code and other data can be output to an external device.

Error Code

Acceleration / Deceleration

Four patterns of acceleration/deceleration settings are possible according to your operating conditions. Acceleration and deceleration can be set separately.

Acceleration / Deceleration

Operation / Data Setting

You can easily perform all tasks from operation to data setting by using our teaching pendant or data editing software.

Operation Using External Pulse Input

The EZ Limo can be combined with your existing controller to serve as a driver controlling the linear slide by pulse input.

External Input

Normal System Configuration - Controller Mode

The linear slide is controlled by selecting positioning data preset in the linear motion controller.

Controller Mode

When Combined with the Customer's Controller - Driver Mode

The linear slide is controlled by inputting pulse signals

Driver Mode

Speed Filter

Use this filter to suppress disturbances during starting and stopping or to reduce vibration during low-speed operation. With the speed filter function you can control the motor to minimize speed fluctuations even switching the speed rapidly between operation commands.

The set value can be adjusted digitally (over a range of 1 to 100). Increasing the set value makes the movement smoother while decreasing the synchronism with the command.

Speed Filter

Stored Program Controller Available

AS Plus ControllerOriental Motor offers a Stored Program Controller with RS-232C communications. For more information about the Stored Program Controller option please contact Tech Support at 1-800-GO-VEXTA or click here to submit an inquiry.
