New LINAK I/O interface expands functionality and control options

New LINAK The I/O Actuator is the very definition of flexibility. With its range of motion and choice of data input and output control, the I/O Actuator offers endless modifications to give you full control over the exact functionality you need. Input options let you tune and control the electric actuator, while output data gives valuable insight into application performance.

“With this new interface, our ambition is to push the limits of what is possible in terms of actuator customization. We want to give our customers more control over the actuator, so they can build even better products. This new interaction with an actuator will inspire our customers and help them think outside the box when designing future applications. Markus Hofmann, Product Manager, SBU TECHLINE®, explains.

Customize your motion solution
Find exactly the features you need and take control of your linear motion. With LINAK I/O, you can make data-driven decisions and use data for monitoring, diagnostics, or continuous improvement. The software allows you to customize the actuators providing the exact functionality required while giving you full control of linear motion.

“The revolutionary flexibility of a LINAK Universal I/O interface, which brings innovative actuator ideas to life, is simpler and more agile. Comprehensive I/O functionality gives you the ability to configure and test further and again your software settings, without having to request a new prototype each time.

Melanie Grohnheit, Product Manager, SBU TECHLINE®, explains.

A showroom of advanced features for your application
Take control, configure settings and monitor behavior of the actuator via Actuator Connect™ after installing the configurator on your PC. The configurator allows you to customize the actuators providing the exact functionality required while giving you full control over their linear motion.

Your choice of actuator: same quality, different levels
LINAK knows that not all projects require the full range of I/O options. Therefore, you have the choice between three levels of functionality: Basic, Full and Custom.

With I/O Basic you get all the benefits of IC with the integrated H-bridge. When you choose I/O Full, you can test and learn while exploring all I/O features. With I/O Customized, you make your decisions based on what you learn. Here, functionality and design are pre-configured to meet your needs.

If you want to access all the features, it is possible to upgrade to the full version directly from the LINAK Actuator Connect™ Configurator.
