Material of Mounting Pedestal for DG series Rotary Acuators

Postby om_tech_support_JT » Tue Oct 25, 2016 10:17 am

Q: I'm using your DG130 series hollow rotary actuators in a special environment close to food processing, and I need to know the material for the mounting pedestal MDG130A. Where can I find this information?

A: The material of the mounting pedestals for both DG and DG2 series is aluminum with anodized surfaces. Since you're considering using the actuators in an application close to food processing, here's some additional information. The motors used on the DG/DG2 series hollow rotary actuators (except for the smallest DG60 models) are rated for IP65 (excluding the motor connector) so it can withstand some washdown with water. Anodizing is an electrochemical process that improves a metal surface into a durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish so that should help as well.
