WhisperTrak linear actuator line expansion

13 April 2017

Virginia-based Thomson Industries Inc., a manufacturer of mechanical motion control solutions, has expanded its WhisperTrak actuator line to offer motion system designers greater ability to extend quiet, compact actuation to more demanding applications.

Thomson states that the new additions to the WhisperTrak linear actuator line double force-handling capability from 2 kN to 4 kN; provide higher-speed operation at 2 kN; and offer new options for low-level switching, limit switching and position control at both 2 kN and 4 kN operation.

The new offerings are designed to have the same ruggedness as original Thomson actuators. This includes an IP67 static environmental rating in order to operate in harsh conditions, in which they are exposed to washdown, rain and dust, without the use of an additional cover.
