Power Arm Linear Actuator
The Model PL Power Arm Actuator is a self-contained, electromechanical, linear actuator for use in remotely controlled manual or fully automatic control systems.
The Model PL Power Arm Actuator is a self-contained, electromechanical, linear actuator for use in remotely controlled manual or fully automatic control systems. This unit may be started, stopped or instantly reversed at any point within the stroke without damage, over heating or loss of power. The Power Arm Actuator has a solid performance history earned by years of continuous operation in thou ands of unattended boiler room combustion installations.
Operation: In response to a SPDT control switch with a neutral position, a reversible gear motor (A) rotates an Acme threaded lead screw (B) to drive a travelling nut (C) and extend or retract the actuator ram (D). Sealed, snap action switches (E) are opened by ram mounted cams (I & J) to stop the motor and positively limit ram travel. The standard actuator includes two normally open auxiliary switches (F) that trip immediately prior to the full open or closed ram position.
Installation: Stationary or pivot mounting is available. Stationary mounting uses base (G) and stabilizing bracket (H). Attached to the ram eye (K) is a clevis that pivots as the ram extends and retracts. Pivot mounting uses only base (G). The ram eye and clevis are re placed by a length of ½" pipe threaded into the ram end. As the ram ex tends and re tracts, the actuator is free to pivot on the base. Pivot mounting permits the use of straight line, push-pull link age that reduces ram friction with result ant pro longed ram and bearing life.
