Thomson has recently released the new Warner Linear H-Track electric actuator with self-contained hydraulic actuation to meet the demand for reliable, rugged actuators. H-Track actuators incorporate a patented fluid power design, which provides high load capability for extreme duty use, a more compact pin to pin than other actuators of the same load capability, excellent ingress protection and corrosion resistance. These actuators can be used in a variety of industrial applications, including e.g. sprayer booms, snow plow blades, patient lifts and mower deck lifts. The H-Track is completely sealed, contaminant-free and maintenance-free for the life of the actuator.
This innovative actuator provides the performance of hydraulics without the space requirements and expense of a full-size hydraulic system. The H-Track uses an external gear pump connected to a reservoir and actuator, yielding the most impact resistant Warner actuator. The H-Track pump is burnished, cleaned, flushed and vacuum filled with degassed hydraulic fluid. Units resist drifting and hold a load stationary without power during load reversals, allowing the H-Track to hold position in high wind environments, high shock-loading applications and bouncing loads.
