Product name: APES23 Stepper Linear Actuator, part of the ElectroCraft Motors AxialPower Enhanced Series.
What is it? ElectroCraft’s APES23 is a 56mm/NEMA 23 frame, hybrid stepper-based linear actuator. The APES23 is available in standard or custom designs as a linear actuator (non-captive), leadscrew motor (external linear), or guided linear actuator (captive). Several resolutions are offered, ranging from 0.0127 to 0.0635 mm per step, with an output force of up to 1779 N (400 lbs.) ElectroCraft’s unique motor, shaft and insert designs offer output force per frame size while providing superior precision, speed and efficiency.
ElectroCraft enhanced series linear actuators have been available in a NEMA11 frame size for several years, but are now being offered in both NEMA17 and NEMA23 frames for greatly enhanced performance capabilities. In addition to multiple frame sizes, motors can be configured in different lengths and winding options to produce the needed motor torque and speed output. While the enhanced series offers 50% more output force than similar sized offerings, they also realize similar benefits in total life of product and ultra-long-term reliability.
