The AU Series of Servo Cylinder linear actuators is designed for subsea and surface robotics operating in harsh marine and maritime environments. Featuring Wet-Mate electrical connectors and a fully sealed pressure-balanced and oil-filled enclosure, it can reliably operate at depths of down to 6000 metres.
The versatile actuator can be configured with a number of options, including screw, BLDC motor size, stroke length, and a choice of three controllers.
The actuator is constructed with a Type III hard anodized coating, and can be equipped with replaceable sacrificial anodes for enhanced corrosion resistance. It is ideal for a wide range of ROV, AUV and USV systems, and low-cost shallow-water versions are also available.
Contactless absolute position feedback and control electronics built-in with control options including CAN 2.0B, RS-422/RS-485 serial, RC PWM, 4-20 mA in/out, and more.
