Duff-Norton’s most advanced linear actuator, the SPA with Intelli-Motion™ technology, is designed to provide reliable operation and simplify applications, especially those that can benefit from automation technology. As the latest product to join our family of automation-focused solutions, this intelligent actuator offers ease of installation, quick configuration, and simple operation to ensure your system can get up and running quickly. The Intelli-Motion platform combines robust actuators from Duff-Norton with modern variable frequency drive (VFD) technology to bring plug-and-play control to industrial material handling applications.
Getting the most from a motion system means finding the right linear actuator, one that works efficiently, is durable, moves the load safely, and operates at the desired speed. The SPA with Intelli-Motion can do all of that and more. It’s robust enough to handle high duty cycle applications while providing precise, repeatable motions. By incorporating VFD control, the SPA linear actuator with Intelli-Motion gives operators the ability to program specific movement patterns with variable speeds, expanding the range of production applications it can be applied to, including balancing loads on automated guided vehicles (AGVs), synchronizing lifting tables, timing critical steps in a manufacturing process, and more.
