SPV for Vertical Operation?

Postby om_tech_support_JT » Wed Feb 15, 2012 2:51 pm

Q: Is it OK for me to use the SPV series belt-driven actuators for vertical loads?

A: Unfortunately, we do not recommend using the SPV series to transport vertical loads. The belt may break under load therefore decreasing the expected longevity of our actuators. We also do not offer an electromagnetic brake option to provide holding torque for the vertical load if the system power fails. For vertical load operation, I would suggest looking at our EZS II series motorized slide systems or other linear motion products.
