INDUSTRY CHALLENGES

  • Constant exposure to water and salt spray increases maintenance time and reduces actuator life.
  • Long-term underwater operations require high dynamic IP ratings.

Our Solution

  • We have engineered permanently submersible actuators with salt-spray coatings to prevent corrosion.
  • Safety features are a critical addition to mitigate power loss in maritime systems, which we have implemented into all our marine actuators.

Popular Applications

Outstanding actuator protection that doesn’t compromise on performance. Maintenance-free linear motion that just keeps on going.

Hatches & Doors

Our range includes boat hatch actuators with long stroke lengths to accommodate any size. Key safety features and quick release abilities ensure your critical systems are still accessible in the event of a power loss. Each device boasts a sleek design to complement any environment.

Antenna & Radar Systems

For the most accurate positioning and highest data through puts, marine linear actuators adjust and move per your exact requirements. Micrometer precision and high IP ratings will allow your device to with stand demanding maritime weather conditions without compromising on performance. 

Engine & Thruster Positioning

Keep your actuator permanently submerged with an IP68Mdynamic rating. High static force and our industry-leading actuator ingress protection means you never have to second guess installation into outboards and blades, or underwater thruster adjustments. 

Cabins & Interior

Ultimate reliability and low noise ensure any movement is smooth and silent, resulting in optimum customer satisfaction. Our range includes complete column solutions with advanced controls and true sync. Experience the convenience of automated linear motion.

Boat Storage & Lifts

Outstanding actuator protection doesn’t forego capabilities; high force capacity means our boat actuators can work with heavy-duty mechanisms such as cantilevers or vertical lifts. Our premium technologies offer wireless and app-based control for ultimate customer convenience.

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.

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.
