LINAK Australia 's new LA37 linear actuators are specifically designed for use in tough applications, and for outdoor work under extreme weather conditions, making them ideal for the solar tracking market.
These actuators offer a static holding force of up to 45kN and speeds of up to 3.5mm/sec., and feature embedded electronics and feedback such as HALL pulses or MODBUS RTU.
As MODBUST RTU is a serial communication protocol, this allows several trackers to be connected by a single data line, eliminating the need for multiple signal cables.
LA37 linear actuators are also equipped with a heavy duty aluminium housing to ensure consistent performance in harsh conditions, and have been IP66 tested.
They are especially well suited to the solar tracking market as they provide a high lifting capacity and holding force, while offering a long lifetime of up to 20 years. A five year warranty is also supplied by LINAK Australia when used in solar applications.
