ROBUST AND RELIABLE
In each application, the actuator is just one component of many, but at TECHLINE™ we fully appreciate that it is of utmost importance to you and your customers. Not a single actuator leaves LINAK until it has undergone a 100% function test.
Depending on the actuator type, various tests have been carried through. Please consult your local LINAK office or take a look at the actuator data sheet in question to get a thorough test overview.
This is your guarantee that a solution based on LINAK TECHLINE™ electric actuator systems is a solution that will work reliably for years and years.
In the climatic test the actuators are tested to operate in extreme temperatures as well as to endure rapid changes in temperature. In some tests, the actuator has to withstand going from a 212°F (+100°C) environment to -86°F (-30°C) repeatedly and still maintain full functionality.
In the weather protection test the resistance to both dust and water is tested. Furthermore, the TECHLINE range includes a number of electric actuators that are tested to withstand high-pressure cleaning.
Salt spray test
In the salt spray test, the actuator undergoes up to 500 hours of alternating periods of salt spraying and humidity storage.
The ability to handle relevant chemicals is tested by exposing the actuator to for instance diesel, hydraulic oil, urea nitrogen, fertilizers, liquid lime, etc.
All electrical parts are tested: power supply, power and signals cables, control signals, etc. Electrical immunity is tested according to industrial standards such as for radio noise, electrical discharge and burst.
Vibration – The actuator must withstand continuous vibration in three directions.
Shock – The shock test puts the actuator through 3 shocks of up to 100 G in each of 6 directions.
Bump – The actuator receives bumps of up to 40 G in each of six directions several hundred times.
