Unrivaled Power Density

High Force Electrocylinder and Small Frame Sizes
The Parker ETH electrocylinder closes the gap between pneumatic and hydraulic drives.  It is suitable to replace those in many aplications and simultaneously increase the reliability of the production process.  Taking the costs for air and oil into consideration, you will fiind that in most cases an electromechanical system such as the ETH elctrocylinder offers the most economical solution.
ETH Electrocylinder
  • Strokes up to 2000 mm  
  • High traction/thrust force up to 56 000 N   
  • Repeatability up to �0.03 mm    
  • Speeds up to 1.7 m/s
  • Frame sizes ETH032, ETH050, ETH080, ETH100

Gocator 2300 3D Smart Sensor
All-in-One 3D Megapixel Smart Sensor 

The Gocator 2300 family of 3D Megapixel smart sensors reduce the cost of factory automation by making product validation easy to implement and maintain.  Simple to integrate and industrially designed for the rugged needs of the factory floor, Gocator 3D smart sensors are packed with built-in tools that can have a big impact on your bottom line. Gocator 2300  
  • Pre-calibrated to scan micron-level details
  • High speed & low latency
  • Setup & control via Web browser
  • Built-in tools, no programming
  • Single sensors require no additional controllers, amplifiers or PCs

This new capability enables the Gocator smart sensor to interface to a PLC through EtherNet/IP protocol.  EtherNet/IP is an industrial protocol that allows bidirectional data transfer with PLCs and the Gocator 2300 family.

SmartMotor Numeric Control 

Make Your SmartMotor a CNC Solution


SMNC™, Moog Animatics' G-Code based servo motion control software, uses numeric control to deliver multi-axis contouring for your Moog Animatics SmartMotor™ applications.  SMNC provides a set of features that are comparable to any CNC system, including a user interface that is similar in appearance to a traditional CNC system.


With SMNC you can define up to 30 inputs to perform SMNC functions, such as Start, Reset, and Feed Hold or as interlocks as well as define up to 10 different tools.


SMNC standard features include:

  • Linear and circular motion control of multiple axes
  • Configures SmartMotors across multiple serial ports
  • Displays source code during execution
  • Large numerical display
  • Duplication of axis motion for gantry systems
  • Converts CAD-DXF files into motion control G & M Codes
  • Smooth control of acceleration and deceleration for sensitive curvilinear motion
  • User-definable M-Codes for digital output
