Linear motion control systems and components manufacturer Nook Industries has introduced its ELZex Modular Linear Actuator series. Developed by Nook’s Precision Actuator Group, the heavy duty rodless design is belt-driven and features an anti-static high torque drive belt. The ELZex is suitable for extreme manufacturing environments, such as potentially explosive atmospheres. The design features stainless steel guide rods that work in conjunction with adjustable track rollers to maintain consistent contact with the stainless steel guide rods; thus, preventing potentially explosive electric arcing discharge. The actuators are available in a range of sizes – ELZex: 40 / 60 / 80 / 805 / 100 / 125. Stroke-lengths up to several hundred feet are available. ELZex series is certified for ATEX 95 (2G & 3D) testing which provides the technical requirements for equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
