New option for the LA36 actuator with IC

LINAK now introduces SAE J1939 CAN bus control for the LA36 actuator as an all-in-one package solution.

With this well-known bus standard, you can use linear actuator movement in your CAN bus system without having to customize electronics.

Actuators with built-in CAN bus control are easy to install and adjust to fit a wide range of heavy-duty machinery within, e.g., agriculture and construction. Increased connectivity and live data make it easy for a control system and actuators with CAN bus to communicate directly to each other.

The CAN bus J1939 allows you to check the position of the actuators, monitor their diagnostic feedback, such as voltage, temperature and other conditions, or coordinate the movement of several actuators in the system.

LINAK actuators with integrated CAN bus control will give you a less complex system with simple wiring, which is easy to integrate with your machine. It provides high control with live data, and increased flexibility for adapting the same actuator to fit various types of applications.

CAN bus is available as a new bus option on the LA36 Integrated Controller (IC) platform.
