The 2010 Guide to Motion Solutions for Clean Energy Applications reviews a few most significant considerations to maximize the reliability, accuracy, and efficiency of their solar panel and wind energy machines, with information on the benefits of linear actuators, precision linear actuators, and screw jacks.
“These durable linear actuators are easy-to-apply ‘green’ alternatives to hydraulic or manual actuation,” says Thomson’s Rob Gallagher. “Users benefit from a wide range of actuator platforms, with flexible design and envelope possibilities to meet the requirements for solar-tracking systems, and the key operating components of wind power. This guide helps them quickly and easily start to navigate the options.
Thomson industrial linear actuators feature weather protection (ranging from IP56-67) to maintenance free, 20-year life based on one complete cycle per day. Power drive units can hold static loads of up to 4,000 lbs and resist back-driving in high winds. Temperature ratings cover significantly varied conditions and range from -40 to +185°F.
