New Encoder Option Available for AMETEK Haydon Kerk Pittman’s 15000 Series Actuators

15000 series with E16 encoder

Waterbury, CT (June 1, 2022) – As a world leader in compact linear and rotary motion systems, AMETEK Haydon Kerk Pittman, a business unit of AMETEK, is pleased to announce its 15000 series stepper motor linear actuator – known as the LC15/LE15 – is now available with an encoder option.

Linear actuators in the 15000 series are available in captive and linear versions, with a variety of resolutions ranging from 0.02mm to 0.10mm per step. The 15000 series can stack stepper motor linear actuators deliver force of up to 8 lbs. (35N) without compromising longevity or cost. In addition, models can be micro-stepped for finer resolution. The new encoder option offers closed-loop control, an added benefit to the actuator’s small size.

Applications for the LC15/LE15 actuators with encoders include medical automation and other automated devices requiring precise, remote-controlled linear movements in a very small package.
