WATERBURY, CT – Quiet, energy-efficient linear stepper actuators from Haydon Kerk™ Motion Solutions are excellent replacements for loud and power-hungry solenoid valves for such critical applications as Security Door Actuation systems.
With the use of a properly modified Haydon Kerk Hybrid Linear Stepper Actuator, several problems commonly associated with solenoids in security door actuation systems are virtually eliminated. These include loud actuation and buzzing during operation, spike in inrush current, lack of power and excess heat generated by the solenoids.
With over 200 thread designs and four motor frames sizes below 43mm available, Haydon Kerk can custom design and build compact linear actuators to an end user’s specific force and speed requirements for a wide range of highly demanding and critical-functioning applications.
The modular nature of Haydon Kerk’s hybrid linear actuator design allows for easy customization of the actuator to accommodate custom-mounting configurations, wire egress point, stroke length and winding configuration to name just a few common modifications. Haydon Kerk engineers also are available to help end users define and customize the ideal linear actuator for a specific application.
