  • Harmonic Drive LLC Introduces 480V Actuator with IP65 protection

    Ideal for machine tool, packaging, and wash-down applications 

    Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control introduces FHA-C-H series actuators. Available in four sizes, these new super-flat actuators feature IP65 protection. With IP65 and 480V, the FHA actuator is well suited for machine tool, packaging, and wash-down applications. The new product will be on display at Fabtech in Chicago booth A1338!

     FHA-C-H rotary servo actuators utilize Harmonic Drive® precision gears combined with a performance matched brushless servo motor. Encoder options now include EnDat® & HIPERFACE®. The FHA series is designed to operate with a wide range of third-party servo drives including Bosch, Mitsubishi, Siemens, and Kollmorgen.

    The FHA has a low-profile form factor and features a hollow-output shaft. This hollow shaft feature may be used to pass cables, tubing or lasers through the axis of rotation.

    Gear Ratios of 50:1, 100:1, and 160:1 are available in each of the four sizes, offering the machine designer a wide selection of speed and torque specifications.  Like all Harmonic Drive® actuators, the FHA-C-H actuators are highly reliable and maintain zero backlash for the life of the gear.

    New FHA-C-H Features:

    • IP65 Rating
    • 480VAC
    • EnDat® & HIPERFACE® Encoder Protocols
    • DESINA style flex rated cables
