The PSA56 combines Nanotec’s external hybrid linear actuator LSA56 and the smart controllers of our PD4-E series

This extremely compact drive unit is especially designed for challenging applications that require high repetition accuracy. The integrated magnetic single-turn absolute encoder has a resolution of 1024 cpr and supports field-oriented control via CANopen.

Offering the full range of motion control, I/O and communication options, the PSA56 actuator is highly configurable. 

The lead screw has a 3/8’’ ACME thread and can be matched with Nanotec’s standard or anti-backlash threaded nuts. Its protective coating is made of carbon material and improves the friction characteristics and thereby the service life of the nuts.

  • Fully programmable
  • Robust design, rated IP65 
  • Reduced installation costs and cabling effort
  • Other screws, fieldbuses or motor lengths on request
  • Operating voltage: 12 – 48 V
