The e-MOVEKIT helps manufacturers of mobile machinery simplify the specification, assembly and testing of electric linear actuation systems. The kit was developed in response to the trend towards electrification of motion systems in mobile and off-highway equipment—in particular, replacement of hydraulic devices with electric actuators that offer high power density, greater force capacity, energy efficiency, safety and reliability. The kit is ideal for both prototype development projects as well as full-scale equipment builds.
The kit is a complete system with all the components needed to drive and control linear motion in mobile machinery fitted with a 24-volt power source, with either analog or CAN-bus standard controls. At the heart of each kit is an advanced, modular electric actuator. The actuator is designed to be used with a wide range of high-performance motors, gearboxes and end attachments, all of which are supplied in the kit. Each kit also includes all the connectors, cables and mounting attachments needed for installation.
Ewellix electric actuators offer a range of benefits. For example, regenerative braking can be initiated when each actuator is being driven under load. Safety features—such as a descent speed limiter, back-up nut and electromechanical motor braking—can easily be incorporated.
