Throttle Actuators Simplify Industrial Vehicle Design

Promising to ease industrial-vehicle design while improving performance, Thomson Electrak’s Throttle Actuator sports a rugged, space-saving design that enables ergonomic placement of engine controls to improve operator safety and productivity. This also provides quicker installation and near-zero maintenance. Electronic options can automatically control engine RPM to minimize the vehicle’s environmental impact by reducing fuel consumption, noise, and emissions. Models are available in numerous user-selectable configurations including 12- or 24-Vdc supply voltage, flying leads or connector installation, straight or right angle cable exit, and a variety of electronic options such as potentiometer feedback, end-of-stroke electronic limit switches, and CANBUS communication. Other standard features include integrated mounting holes, worm screw drive system with stainless steel extension tube, and an IP69K-rated, E-coated aluminum housing. Standard Electrak throttle actuator models are available in two dynamic/static load performance ranges of 45/90 N (10/20 lbf) or 130/260 N (30/60 lbf) maximum, with corresponding no load/full load speed performance of 96/83 mm/s (3.7/3.3 in/s) or 48/37 mm/s (1.9/1.5 in/s) respectively. All models provide a 50% duty cycle at max load. Operating temperature range is -40 to 85°C (-40 to 185°F with an extended high temp range option to 125°C (257°F).
