Compact actuators include SMART motors


Intelligent actuators are highly programmable, integrated actuators with a motor, encoder, amplifier, controller, USB communication, and IOs. The stages come fully pre-configured and enable true out-of-the box controls. 

The IntelLiDrives actuators are suitable for the confines and requirements of the laboratory, and the actuators are also applicable for use in manufacturing environments. 

Linear actuators are fitted with ball screws and linear bearings for accuracy and repeatability in precision applications.

The SMART ‘all-in-one’ solution includes motor, driver, controller and encoder in the single compact package.

Intelligent actuators are member of the Compact Positioning Stages family of linear, rotary, XY and vertical lift stages. 

Two or more stages can easily be mounted together in numerous combinations using adapter plates and brackets, meaning there is no need to daisy chain multiple axes, just plug USB cables into USB hub and control unlimited number of axes with a GUI.

Intelligent actuators can easily ‘talk over’ USB 2.0 interfaces and come with powerful yet easy to use software packages for system start-up and integration, like communication drivers, linkable DLL libraries, National Instruments Labview drivers and VI examples, GUI and easy-to-use DXF conversion software.
