Start Electrifying with Linear Motion

Connected vehicles both on and off the highway pose new challenges for manufacturers, with increased diversity and performance capabilities required. Find your ideal solution for your vehicle in our specialized automotive actuator range.

Let's Talk

Industry Challenges

  • Matching the power density of onboard pneumatics and hydraulics for leak free operation has been a considerable challenge.
  • Vehicle actuators face high temperature fluctuations and a corrosive environment, reducing their lifespan and increasing required maintenance.

Our Solution

  • We have developed fully sealed, washdown rated hydraulic equivalents in compact sizes, mitigating the risk of leaks.
  • Specialized actuators have been designed to withstand harsh environments, with anti-corrosive coatings tested for salt spray, and protection against dirt or water ingress.

Popular Applications

Equip your product to deliver and outperform. Never compromise on quality or capability with powerful linear motion.

On-Highway Speciality

Emergency vehicles, sweepers, snow ploughs, performance vehicles and other equipment rely on efficient and dependable linear motion. Enable variable exhaust systems with low profile and low noise actuators. To prepare for any environment, our automotive actuators have an IP69K washdown rating, making sure your machines are ready anytime: no matter the weather conditions. 

Agricultural Vehicles

Many of our agricultural electric linear actuators are designed specifically for vibration, dirt, and rugged environments. Electric motion eliminates the threat of leaks, enhancing your application’s reliability, safety, and efficiency; all while reducing costs and complexity. Ample feedback options are also available, giving you more control and insight into maximizing your efficiency. 

Accessible Vehicles

Accessible vehicles make travelling possible for those who cannot depend on conventional vehicles. Linear actuators are key to simplifying this process, giving those with physical challenges the convenience they need. Specialized actuators with long strokes, high forces, reliable adjustments, and fully integrated controls can run off a standard 12/24V DC vehicle power. 

Recreational Vehicles

Our specialty actuators can be found in the interior or exterior of recreational vehicles with quick release available for emergencies. When implemented within interior furniture, quiet, smooth operation is ensured. For exterior operations, rugged and highly protected devices are used for awnings and slide-outs. Reliable, clean, and cost-effective linear motion.

All-Terrain Vehicles

Experience unlimited possibilities with fully sealed automotive linear actuators. Don’t compromise on efficiency with enhanced braking systems and attachments or opt for automatic windshields powered by salt-spray rated electric motion. High protection ratings ensure long-life and durability, with the ability to withstand the harshest environments. Designed for OEMs and replacements.

Our Customization Capabilities

Positional Feedback

Analog or digital, we offer a variety of feedback options such as hall effect sensors, potentiometers, reed switches and limit switch feedback. Some of our actuators are available with onboard RS-485 or TTL/PWM communications protocol.

Stroke Length

Exact stroke lengths can be customized down to the millimeter or inch, with maximum strokes of over 1500 millimeter or 60 inches. With hundreds of options in stock at all times, you don’t have to wait around for a perfect fit.

Force

From a few Newtons to over 65kN, we have options for applications of all sizes. Flexibly trade off force for speed, or vice versa, and get the ideal combination to fit your needs.

Connectors

The connectors that come with each actuator are changeable based on your requirements. Our actuators generally come with either tinned wires or Mini Fit Jr Molex Connectors pre-installed, but the choice is yours.

Motor or Stroke Mounting Ends

We have multiple customization options available to suit your actuator’s mounting requirements. Fisheye, mounting holes, any clevis type, trunnions, or custom designed solutions are available.

Voltage

You can increase or decrease the voltage of your actuator to suit your application. From 7.4V DC to 48V DC, we have a wide range to fit your needs. You can also avail of plug and play solutions if AC power is required.

IP Rating

Do you need that extra bit of protection for your actuator? Salt-spray and anti-corrosive coatings may be the way to go. Upgrade your unit today with IP69K ingress protection for peace of mind and long unit life.
