Build Machines that Work Smarter, Not Harder, with Thomson Smart Actuation Solutions
Smart actuation starts with advanced level onboard electronics, which allows for advanced functionality, formerly conducted superficially, be put right into the actuator. These functions include position feedback, switching and system diagnostics. Thomson’s smart actuators are designed to utilize microprocessor-based printed circuit boards, with added software to enhance contact within networks that run remotely.
This level of technology may benefit the following markets:
• Factory Automation: Fork Lifts – Machine Operation and Safety – Assembly / Control Stations and Fixtures – Logistic Trains and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV)
• Construction and Agricultural Equipment: Combines – Skid Steer Excavators – Public Transportation
• Structural Automation: Garbage Compactors and Recycle Stations
• Material Handling
Why Thomson Smart Actuators?
Thomson Smart Actuators enhance diagnostic capabilities and controllability, using fewer components, less cabling and hardware. This results in decreased development time, weight and software costs, with increased functionality and machine performance.
