Tritex II Series Operation & Application

The Tritex II Series actuators can operate in one of five different motion-producing modes. These modes solve an endless variety of applications in:

  • Industrial automation
  • Medical equipment
  • Fastening and joining
  • Blow molding
  • Injection molding
  • Testing
  • Food processing

Rotary actuator: Applications & Power

Tritex II rotary motors and gear motors provide a high response and precise control of a rotatable shaft, similar to that found in any electric motor. The difference is that with Tritex II, you can program (via your PC) the rotational speed and position of the output shaft in response to external commands.

For example, the motor can be commanded to rotate at a controlled velocity and  precisely stop at a preprogrammed position. You can also program the unit to run at a preset velocity until a switch input is received or a preprogrammed torque level is produced against a load. Alternatively, the rotary Tritex II actuators can be set up to follow an analog signal - either voltage or current - representing your choice of torque, velocity, or position.

Signals for initiating the preprogram-med velocity and position commands come from optically isolated inputs or directly via network communications. Likewise, isolated output commands of the status and events enable precise coordination with your system controls or machine operator. 

How do you select an actuator system?

When selecting an actuator system, it is necessary to determine the required motor torque to perform the given application. These calculations can then be compared to the torque ratings of the given amplifier and motor combination used to control the actuator’s velocity and position.

What software is needed to control a rotary actuator?

The Tritex II user interface software provides you with a simple way to select all aspects of configuration and control required to set up and operate a Tritex II actuator.

Motion setup, homing, teach mode, tuning parameters, jogging, I/O configurations, and local control are all accomplished with ease using Expert software.
