‘Smart’ Rotary Actuator
The RTLA-30-100-SMART rotary stages provide accurate
positioning performance in a low profile and compact footprint. They are perfect for the confines and requirements of
the laboratory and are also applicable for use in manufacturing
environments. These stages are ideal for optics, measurement,
alignment and other demanding applications. The RTLA-30-
100-SMART rotary stages incorporate a precision worm-gear drive mechanism and bearing components
for accurate positioning performance over the lifetime of the product. They are motorized with SMART
motor/encoder combination and can be controlled in closed position mode offering high resolution and
multi-axes daisy-chain operation, with increased speed and high-speed torque.
Motion Card Integrates High Performance
Amps with Full Motion Control
Performance Motion Devices has announced a
new family of Prodigy motion cards that combines
a full featured four axis motion card with high
performance on-card amplifiers. The Prodigy/CME
Machine Controller Card utilizes PMD’s ATLAS Digital
Amplifiers to eliminate the need for external amplifi-
ers, allowing new levels of convenience, integration,
and cost savings for applications in life sciences
equipment, scientific automation, robotics, and general purpose automation. Machine Controller cards
are offered in 1, 2, 3, and 4-axis configurations, and control the torque, velocity, and position of DC
Brush, Brushless DC, and Step motors. They measure just 7. 8” x 4.88” ( 19. 8 cm x 12. 4 cm), providing
a small form factor for space constrained designs. Communications to the card include 10/100 MBPS
Ethernet with UDP and TCP protocols, serial RS232, serial RS485, and CANbus.

Thomson Industries has introduced the new line of Thomson Whisper Trak Electric Linear Actuators.
Through quiet (<45 dBa), maintenance-free operation in a compact one-piece housing, the Thomson
Whisper Trak linear actuator maximizes design flexibility and improves performance and user comfort in
personal mobility, rehabilitation, and medical equipment applications where reliability, small size and
low noise are primary design
considerations. These attributes
also make the Thomson Whisper Trak actuator an ideal solution
in office and domestic-use
equipment. Thomson Whisper-Trak actuators comply with all
relevant certificates and are built
in accordance with ISO 9000.
