Tubular motors

In the tubular motor category, we offer two distinct product families:

- Green Drive: For large forces and for 230Vac or 400Vac
- NL Series: For smaller forces and for 24Vdc or 48Vdc

In the following, you can find more detailed information about both families.

Green drive tubular motors for high forces

Most important features:

  • DC-link voltages up to 560Vdc
  • Peak force up to 1,160N
  • Strokes up to 600mm
  • Optional anti-rotation device
  • Feedback: Quad A/B, Analog Sin/Cos 1Vpp, BiSS

The Green Drive tubular linear motor is a direct drive actuator. The linear motion is generated without ballscrews, belts and or gears. The Green Drive is composed of two parts: the stainless steel slider with holes for payload fixing and the IP65 motor body that contains the coils and the feedback electronics. The slider is guided by high performance sliding bearings. The electronics contains position sensors, temperature sensors, interpolation electronics and motor parameters as an electronic data sheet (EDS). The Green Drive standard version is available in different sizes up to reach 1,160 N of peak force. All models are available with different strokes and feedback options. Additionally, special models for hygienic applications are available on request.

Feedback options: Analog SIN/COS 1Vpp, Quad A/B, BiSS-C.

DC-link voltage: 320Vdc or 560Vdc (same winding).


NL series: miniature tubular motors

The most important features of this family are:

  • Motor with optional integrated drive electronics
  • Flange dimensions beginning from 15x34mm till 35x63mm
  • Force range starts from 0,6 N up to 20 N of continuous force
  • Voltage 24 VDC to 48 VDC
  • Encoder SIN/COS 1 Vpp

Our miniature linear motors are a complete solution for the pharmaceutical and medical industry and for all kind of automatic machines in general. One of the advantages of the standard NL series is its compactness with flange dimensions beginning from 15x34mm till 35x63mm. The linear motor is composed of a high performance three phase winding, an integrated encoder SIN/COS 1Vpp and a rod in AISI 304 stainless steel. The NL series, composed of 6 different types, has an excellent performance and dimension ratio. The force range starts from 0,6 N up to 20 N of continuous force with peak forces 6 times these values. The standard power supply of the drive is 24/48 VDC.

Linear motors with integrated drive electronics

The miniature linear motors NLI have the same outside dimensions of the standard NL series, including a high-performance servo drive with positioning features and CANopen fieldbus control. The power supply of these motors has a wide range from 24 Vdc up to 48 Vdc. The miniature linear motors NLI with integrated drive electronics are particularly suitable for the replacement of pneumatic actuators, using the same control logic.
