Electric Actuators Controllers & Drivers
Controllers and drivers needed for our electric actuator family. You will find step motor, servo motor and card motor controllers as well as 24VDC Fieldbus gateway units and AC servo drivers.
Electric linear actuators can push, pull or transfer workloads in a distinctly different way from pneumatic actuators. Pneumatic actuators rely on relatively crude devices such as rubber cushions or shock absorbers, pressure regulators, and flow restricting fittings at the port to control their motion. By contrast, an electric actuator employs an electronically controlled motor and ballscrew to deliver a precise motion profile through acceleration, speed and deceleration. Further, the controller is capable of integrating multiple ‘stop’ positions along the actuator's stroke with high precision and repeatability.
Fittings and Flow Control Equipment

Needle cartridges can be replaced quickly to reduce down time. The IZS bar style Ionizer is available in various lengths to meet the specific needs of your work area.
IZT Bar Ionizer, Separate Controller and Power Supply Module
The IZT bar ionizer is an industrial static control solution. Bar ionizers generate a curtain of static eliminating ions effective for a distance up to 2000mm/6.5 ft. The IZT's low profile is also ideal for tight clearance installations. Compared to SMC's IZS4 bar ionizers, the power supply and control modules have been separated from the bar, resulting in a reduction in bar height. IZT bars can be placed closer to static-carriying materials in more confined adjacent spaces. The separate controller can be mounted in a workstation for easier access and observation during operation. Models include the standard IZT40, the IZT41 which adds auto-balance, emitter maintenance detection, and I/O signals, and the IZT42 with low amplitude ion generation for sensitive electronics. Extending the value of IZT, one controller can manage a maximum of 4 ionizing bars. Needle cartridges are easily removed, without tools, for cleaning or end-of-life replacement, futher extending this ionizer's value.
IZN Nozzle Ionizers
SMC offers two industrial static control options for compact or confined target treatment areas. The IZN Nozzle Ionizer is a palm-sized, self-contained static control device with a cable for PLC I/O and power supply connections. The IZT43 pairs a smaller ionizing head with separate power supply and control modules, for even more confined applications up to 3m from the operator's workstation.
IZF Fan Ionizers
Unlike bar or nozzle types, this fan ionizer does not require a pneumatic air supply. The fan draws in ambient air, then ionizes the air with four electrodes located around the perimeter of the discharge grill. The fan can be wired into a 24VDC machine power supply, or use the optional 120V AC adapter. The small form factor adapts well to enclosure mounting, or select the benchtop mounting bracket for free positioning.
IZG10, Ionizer Gun
The IZG10 Ionizer Gun combines the functions of a triggered, compressed air blow gun and a high frequency AC ionizer. This device allows a user to easily clean dust-contaminated workpieces, or separate clinging films or sheets of paper or carboard during manual operations. Once the target materials are cleaned, additional operations can be performed such as assembly, printing or labeling, surface treatment, or packaging. Ergonomic features such as a low 200g weight, easy to hold grip, and trigger settings improve comfort and reduce user fatigue. Energy savings result from selecting a pulse blowing mode, an OFF timer, or setting on the flow adjustment valve. High visibility LEDs indicate power, ion generation, maintenance requirement, or function errors. A removable nozzle allows emitter cleaning and eventual replacement at its end of life. Finally, a bright LED at the front illuminates the target area for detailed work. Includes 3m power supply cable.
