All-in-One 3D sensor


Gocator 1300 The Gocator 1300 series of smart laser displacement sensors are the next generation of high speed (32kHz) distance measuring devices. Ideal for non-contact measurement, Gocators are simple to network and integrate. These sensors are ruggedly designed to handle industrial applications and are ready to use for your most demanding on-line inspection applications, right out of the box. Gocator's small footprint make it ideal for fitting into tight spaces and mounting onto robotic arms.

  • 32 kHz scan rate 
  • Measure at high resolution over ranges from 40 mm to 2 m
  • Easily scalable to multi-sensor system
  • Gigabit Ethernet data delivery
  • Industrial IP67 rated housing 
Animatics Moog logo Harsh Environment Rated SmartMotor     

Bringing integrated SmartMotor benefits to wet environments


Animatics' new harsh environment-rated SmartMotor™ servo offers IP65 ratings with the convenience of a smaller frame size, NEMA23 and NEMA34, for compact applications.


The sturdy design and thicker motor casing provides protection and durability, and therefore any factory process using wash-down techniques or wet processing environments can benefit from the easily programmable SmartMotor and its unique features such as Combitronic communication protocol and stand alone linear interpolation.

SmartMotor for wet environments


  • Mil-style connectors
  • IP65 rating (with option to upgrdae to IP67)
  • Sturdy design and thicker motor casing
  • 10 points of 24V I/O
  • DeviceNet or CANopen
  • Brake Option Available
Tolomatic Logo ERD Low Cost Electric Cylinders     

Alternative to pneumatic cylinders


ERD solutions The ERD electric cylinders are low-cost electric actuators that provide an alternative to pneumatic cylinders and an option for automating manual processes.  The ERD electric cylinders are compatible with many NEMA and Metric standard stepper and servo motors to create low-cost electric actuator solutions.


The Tolomatic ERD20 Rod Actuator is the newest addition to the Electric Rod product line providing higher force capability, up to 500 lbs, and stroke lengths up to 24 inches at very economical prices.


ACS stepper drive & controller is an extremely easy-to-use stepper drive and controller developed specifically to be used with ERD electric actuators offering EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP connectivity.
