Integrated Linear Actuators: ICR Series SmartActuator

ICR SmartActuator: an integrated electric Actuator combining servomotor, digital drive, controller and actuator into a single unit
ICR SmartActuator: an integrated electric Actuator combining servomotor, digital drive, controller and actuator into a single unit

The innovative ICR series SmartActuators is an easy-to-use, "all-in-one" (servomotor, drive, controller and actuator integrated into a single unit) integrated electric rod-style actuator, which is designed to simplify linear motion control for industrial applications.

There are two versions available- an "ICR Basic" package, which mimics pneumatic actuators and requires no programming, and an "ICR Plus" package, which allows for full programmability.

Both ICR Basic and ICR Plus electric SmartActuators offer:

  • 100% duty cycle for continuous operation
  • Maximum continuous force up to 1720N (387 lbs-force) and 3200N (720 lbs-force) at peak
  • Stroke configurable up to 610mm (or 24 inches)
  • 24 Vdc opto-isolated inputs, NPN or PNP
  • Two ball screw selections
  • IP65 option for protection against water and dust ingress

The ICR SmartActuator series actuators can be used in a wide variety of low- to medium-force applications such as packaging, material handling, machine tooling and general industrial automation.

ICR Basic Package

The ICR Basic is a perfect pneumatic or hydraulic cylinder replacement for low to medium thrust applications. Easy-to-use setup requires no software, tuning or programming. It features 2-position extend/retract capability, mid-stroke positioning with sensors, and force control.
  • Mid-stroke positioning with sensors
  • Force control / limiting
  • Digital encoder for closed loop control
  • Digital drive:
    • operated via digital I/O to extend / retract
    • no software, programming or tuning
  • Independent extend / retract speed control
  • Interface controls:
    • speed and force controls;
    • simple interface that minics pneumatic valve control
  • 4 inputs: Enable, E-Stop, Fwd., Rev.
  • 2 outputs: 24V line driver; fault, in-position
ICR Plus package

The ICR Plus package has all features of ICR Basic version plus a powerful, flexible integrated digital drive. It offers programmability, infinite positioning and advanced network communication options including indexing, network communication, stand-alone operation, stepper and analogue position modes.
  • Stand-alone operation
  • Stepper mode (Pulse / direction)
  • Analogue position mode
  • Digital encoder for closed loop control
  • Infinite positioning
  • Digital drive:
    • advanced indexer programming environment for maximum flexibility to solve the most demanding applications;
    • full suite of software for setup, diagnostics and debug
  • Network communication
    • CANopen communications allow daisy chaining up to 127 units (CANopen device profile DSP-402)
    • DevicesNet- daisy chain up to 63 actuators;
    • RS-232 to CANopen
    • Two ports for easy daisy chain wiring
  • 8 inputs
  • 2 outputs, opto-isolated sinking / sourcing
