Rod-style Electric Actuators

Norgren ELION

Rod-style Electric Actuators

A range of ISO standard rod-style, ball screw electromechanical linear actuators available with or without servo motors, in 6 bore sizes with 2 motor mounting options.

  • Accurate and Repeatable
    Ball screw and servo motor provides accurate and repeatable positioning
  • Long Life
    Ball screw and bearing mechanisms enable high cycle life
  • Ease of Installation
    Based on ISO 15552 standard with universal mounting options
  • Performance Monitoring
    Integral sensors and external switches monitor actuator performance and enable planned maintenance
  • Energy Saving
    Electromechanical components efficiently convert electricity to mechanical power, only energised when movement is required, reducing energy consumption and the cost of ownership.
  • Safety in Service
    Servo motor with optional integrated holding brake enables actuators to self-lock when the power is isolated
  • Environment
    IP65 options for both axial and parallel mounted motors ensure actuators will continue to operate in dusty and wet environments
  • Smart Configurations
    Online configurator enables quick and easy product selection based upon customer application input
  • Flexible Service
    Customised motor interfaces allow customers to fit their own preferred motors

Application Configurator

Our intuitive, easy to use online configuration tool gives you the flexibility to specify the correct actuator for your requirements.

You are able to configure using application attributes such as distance, load and speed; and product attributes such as size, stroke length and mountings.

Quick Start Guide and Parameter Files

Our guide will explain how to install and set up your electric actuator for operation. You can also download parameter and macro file sets to enable quick drive and motor commissioning.

White Paper

Specifying the best actuation solution is often complicated for manufacturers, who need to understand both their application and the most cost effective, energy efficient solution.

Our whitepaper features a handy checklist to ensure you can confidently select the best solution, be it electric or pneumatic.

CAD Configurator

If you know the product you need, then our CAD Configurator allows you to configure using product attributes, add mountings and accessories and download your configuration in your native CAD format.

We support 60+ native CAD formats including AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Pro/Engineer, NX and Catia.
