New additions to the WhisperTrak linear actuator line double force-handling capability from 2 kN to 4 kN; provide higher-speed operation at 2 kN; and offer new options for low-level switching, limit switching, and position control at both 2 kN and 4 kN operation.

The 4 kN WhisperTrak offering is rated for 4 kN (900 lbs.) with speed at 4 mm/sec (0.16 in./sec). The 2 kN version is rated for 2 kN (450 lbs.) with speed at 8 mm/s (0.31 in./sec). All models can be specified for 12- or 24-volt input with stroke lengths available between 100 and 500 mm (3.94 to 19.69 in.).
