Jul. 22, 2016 – Schunk says its ELP electric linear module is the most user-friendly electric linear module on the market.
The ELP can be adjusted in two steps, it says, and its end positions can be mechanically adjusted with a screw and the speed of extension and retraction is adjusted using rotary switches on the side of the unit. According to Schunk, speed can be automatically adjusted, depending on extension weight. As well, no shock absorber adjustment is necessary, because the drive automatically regulates the brake process, it notes. The control and power electronics are directly integrated into the module, and can be controlled by a fieldbus distributor or through digital signals.
