Compact Linear VCA Meets Enters Medical Arenas

The BEI Kimco LAH08-15-000A voice coil actuator (VCA) addresses the size and weight requirements of mobile medical devices. The VCA measures 0.75-inches in diameter and weighs 2.3 ounces.  Delivering a peak force of nearly 1.81 pounds and an operating stroke of ±0.2mm (total 0.4 stroke), it also features low hysteresis, zero cogging, high acceleration, and long life cycle.  In addition to ventilator applications, the new VCA provides the accurate linear motion control needed for anesthesia machines and other medical instruments in an extremely small size.  For more information, visit http://www.sensata.com
