The LES electric actuator combines a motor and ball screw drive, worktable, and linear guide in compact body. The formed sheet metal table allows a lower mounting surface height, lighter weight, and greater vertical work load than the LESH slide table. Body orientations include basic, symmetrical, and inline mounted motor. This version includes a 24VDC motor with a battery-less absolute encoder. This encoder allows the actuator to be powered down without losing its positional awareness. The machine's PLC can access the controller's operational and positional step data through several fieldbus protocols, IO-Link, or parallel I/O.
