What force can a liteECO® actuator apply statically and dynamically?
can be applied statically (60 kg vertical load). The nominal force for dynamic processes is 33 % (poor thermal connection) to 50 % (good thermal connection) of the maximum force. For dynamic loads, the maximum load capacity must not be exceeded. Contact us to calculate your individual motion profiles.
With which motion controller can the liteECO® actuators be operated?
The liteECO® actuators are tested with motion controller from the following manufacturers:
Contact us for questions about control via different bus systems. We will be happy to assist you in selecting the appropriate control system and check compatibility with your system components.
What are the benefits of switching to an all-electric infrastructure?
The use of electromechanical actuators instead of pneumatic systems leads to a significantly simplification of the system infrastructure and an associated faster commissioning. The reduced component use leads to a more advantageous ecological footprint of the systems.
Whereas the SMELA liteECO® actuators only require a motion controller, a pneumatic cylinder requires a complete compressed air infrastructure consisting of a compressor, pressure vessels, leaky hoses, valves, valve actuators as well as a power supply.
The maintenance effort of these compressed air systems, with continuous lubrication and cleaning as well as filter changes and leakage repairs, represents a non-negligible personnel expense with additional material costs.
Can the movement processes be parameterized?
This means that, in addition to setpoint specification via a bus system (e.g. CAN, EtherCAT, Profinet or Profibus), digital or analog inputs can also be easily evaluated and used in programmed state machines.
This can be useful and helpful for small systems/automats without higher-level control or for quick commissioning by mechanics without programming knowledge.
The adjacent video shows a simple switch function for picking and logistics systems. The desired positions can easily be programmed by hand, without PC or bus connection. The control in the machine can be done via digital inputs (pushbuttons), binary signals or bus systems.

Where are liteECO® actuators used?
The liteECO® linear actuators are ideal for applications that require short linear movements: e.g. in production lines, machine tools or packaging systems. For simple and complex movements: for fixing, adjusting, locking or traversing any motion profiles.
