New guide explores clean energy applications

Thomson Industries Inc. introduces the 2010 Guide to Motion Solutions for Clean Energy Applications, which reviews some of the most significant considerations that design engineers should take into account to maximize the reliability, accuracy, and efficiency of their solar panel and wind energy machines. Specific information is featured on the benefits that linear actuators and screw jacks can bring to these challenging applications.

Thomson's industrial linear actuators are engineered to deliver reliable operation in the wide-ranging outdoor conditions a clean energy facility is likely to experience. These linear actuators feature proven weather protection (ranging from IP56 to 67) to provide a maintenance-free, 20-year life based on one complete cycle per day. The company's power drive units can hold static loads to 4,000 lb and provide superior resistance to back driving in high wind conditions. Temperature ratings cover significantly varied conditions, from -40° to 185° F.

The Thomson screw jack product line provides reliability and versatility in a variety of clean energy applications. Technically mature and with an easy-to-mount rectangular housing, they are easily extended to form wide-area jack systems with the aid of a wide range of accessories.
