Explosion proof linear actuator
The EL Series of linear actuators is engineered to provide reliable and precise operation over thousands of hours, handling heavy loads.
The EL120 linear actuator meets ATEX requirements for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and are in conformity with the EU ATEX Directive 94/9/EC as well as the IECEx Scheme. Additionally, it is rated for Class I, Div 1, Groups B, C, D, and T4 hazardous environments.
The EL Series of linear actuators integrate a planetary roller screw mechanism with a high torque servomotor in a single self-contained package. This design is engineered to provide reliable and precise operation over thousands of hours, handling heavy loads—even under arduous conditions.
Exlar servo-electromechanical systems offer a simple and cost effective replacement for hydraulic actuation and longer life alternative to pneumatic actuation.
