Rod & Guided Rod
The rod type electric actuator has a familiar rod cylinder form suitable for push, pull, lift and press applications. The guide rod type includes rods to counter rotational forces instead of the drive and motor, and also resist shock and sustained lateral loads.
The LEY rod type electric actuator is available in two specifications for improved ingress protection. The X5 option is IP65 dust and drip proof. The X7 option improves to IP67 dust-tight and water jet proof. The X8 option includes IP67 protection as well as a battery-less absolute encoder. For DC motor models, the specs are achieved by enclosing the motor in a sealed aluminum cover with a special cable connector, and pairing the rod with a scraper and lub-retainer. Additionally, the body extrusion includes a vent hole and fitting to balance internal pressure so that dust and water are not drawn in.
