New Strong LINAK Solar Actuator For Large Solar Applications LINAK has now developed a new strong actuator for solar applications. The LA37 is so powerful that it can hold surfaces up to 45 KN - larger surface per tracker ultimately means lower price per produced kWh and thus, better return on investment. Guderup (I- Newswire) March 20, 2012 - LINAK is a specialist in linear movement and has supplied electric linear actuators to solar tracking OEMs for several years and provides specially designed solutions ready to take up the challenges in the solar tracking market. The latest addition to the range of LINAK solar actuators is the LA37 designed for solar applications where there is a need for high lifting capacity and holding force. The LA37 is a solid actuator with a static holding force up to 45 KN and embedded electronics and feed- back like e.g. HALL pulses or MODBUS RTU, which is a serial communication protocol enabling several trackers to be connected by a single data line, eliminating the need for many signal cables. The LA37 actuator is equipped with heavy- duty aluminium housing for harsh conditions. It has a speed of up to 3.5 mm/ sec., an integrated brake and high self- locking ability. The LA37 actuator has been IP 66 tested. The strength of the LA37 and the long lifetime of up to 20 years make this actuator ideal for tough applications. Furthermore, LINAK grants a 5- year warranty on the LA37 actuator for solar applications. The LA37 is available with iFLEX technology. iFLEX is the new sub brand under which every TECHLINE actuator with built- in intelligence is unified e.g. MODBUS. For more information on the LA37 actuator, please visit the LINAK website or www.solar- tracking.com where it is also possible to watch a video about LINAK's own solar park and download the latest technical information about LINAKs solar product range. LINAK is a world leader in designing and manufacturing electric actuators and electronic controls for a variety of applications such as hospital beds, patient lifts, office desks, leisure beds, harvesters, solar tracking systems and many other applications in the industry. LINAK is a global company with subsidiaries all over the world and production facilities in Denmark, the USA, Slovakia and China.
