Exlar Corp. reports it will provide linear actuators for the U.S. Navy’s Advanced Gun System (AGS) Program.
- More than 40 Exlar GSX20 and GSX30 linear actuators are used for each gun and magazine in AGS; provide linear actuation as part of fully automated ammunition supply magazine
Actuator combines a brushless servo motor, an inverted roller screw and encoder/resolver feedback source into single assembly
- Brushless servo design allows them to be used in closed loop servo systems where electronic control of positioning and velocity is required
- Inverted roller screw mechanism convert the rotary motion of the brushless motor into high speed, high thrust linear motion
