New Product: Ultra Motion Power Supply Unit

The Ultra Motion Power Supply Unit is an unregulated AC to DC supply designed specifically for DC motion control applications, including ServoCylinder, and is perfectly suited to most 36V DC motor applications. A Power Supply Unit (PSU) used in DC motion control applications must be sufficiently robust to provide the large bursts of current typical of motor acceleration, while also being capable of tolerating large voltage spikes generated by the motor during deceleration.

What is Phase Index?

Phase Index is Ultra Motion’s innovative new position sensor technology for electromechanical actuators. The Phase Index position sensor is a digital, high-speed, high-resolution, non-contacting actuator position sensor that works over a wide temperature range and is resistant to vibration, shock, particulate debris, and condensing moisture. The sensor is self-calibrating, and does not need backup power to retain absolute position when power is off. The absolute position of an actuator is available immediately upon power-up and with full accuracy. No power-up homing routine is needed to establish an accurate absolute position.

Ultra Motion B2 Linear Actuators Used in Test Flight for Mars Landing Technology

Small, High Power Density Linear Actuator

Our series B1 actuators are 50% smaller than our standard B2 series parallel mount linear actuators, and can be configured to forces up to 500 lbf and speeds to 20 in/s. Due to the B1’s extremely high power density these actuators are being used in demanding applications where size and weight are critical factors such as control surfaces, unmanned vehicles, and robotics. The B1 series is available with both high performance brushed and brushless dc motors.

Ultra Motion B1 Actuators are popular in aerospace applications and have met DO-160 requirements.

Custom Underwater Linear Actuator

Ultra Motion has used its long history in underwater linear motion control to develop a high performance, ruggedized, subsea linear actuator. Currently available as custom units only, these submersible actuators provide long life in demanding underwater applications up to depths of 20,000 feet (10,000 psi). Features include:

  • Type III hard coat anodized aluminum case
  • Stainless 316 Shaft
  • Sacrificial anodes for maximum corrosion protection
  • Pressure balanced, oil-filled (PBOF) connectors
  • Enhanced thermal dissipation due to internal motion of oil, allowing for very high power density actuators
