Device Type
           
   Your choices are...         
   Rod Type       Linear actuators are used to create a controlled linear motion.  Rod type linear actuators have a rod that extends and retracts, similar to the rod in a cylinder. The load attaches to the end of the rod. 
   Rodless       Rodless linear actuators provide linear motion via a motor-driven ball screw, ACME screw, or belt drive assembly. They can also be driven by pneumatic or hydraulic drives. The actuator's load is attached to a fully supported carriage.

   AC       AC motors a very wide class of motors, including single / multiphase, universal, servo, induction, synchronous, and gearmotor types. 
   AC Servo       AC servomotors are permanent magnet synchronous motors that can have low torque-to-inertia ratios for high acceleration ratings. 
   DC       Brushed DC motors have built-in commutation, meaning that as the motor rotates, mechanical brushes automatically commutate coils on the rotor. 
   DC Brushless       Brushless DC motors use an external power drive to allow commutation of the coils on the stator.

   DC Servo       False center DC servomotors have an output shaft that can be positioned by sending a coded signal to the motor. 
   Linear Motor       Linear motors generate force only in the direction of travel. A linear motor applies thrust directly to a load, and does not require any intermediate mechanism to convert rotary motion into linear motion. Linear motors are capable of extremely high speeds, quick acceleration, and accurate positioning.
