Torrance, CA – October 05, 2021

Oriental Motor is pleased to announce the latest addition to the expanded line-up of our popular AZ Series with the expanded line-up of the DR Series compact linear actuator.

The DR Series compact linear actuator is a high precision ball screw actuator fitted with our AZ Series stepper motor with absolute mechanical encoder.  The absolute encoder is a mechanical multi-turn absolute sensor, so an external sensor or battery is not required. The compact body of the DR Series houses the entire linear motion mechanism. This conserves space, reduces installation time and eliminates or reduces wiring and design costs while providing a compact and lightweight design element to the equipment.

The new expanded line-up consists of the DR Series Table Type and Rod Type, which now includes 20mm and 28mm (rolled ball screw) frame sizes. The Guide Rod Type now includes 28 mm rolled ball screw frame size.

The actuator is available with or without a guide, electromechanical brake, and rolled or precision ground ball screws. Many DC input driver types are also available, Built-in
