Iris Dynamics Ltd, a leader in fully integrated linear electric motors, is pleased to introduce the Orca-6 LITE as the latest addition to its Orca Series lineup. The Orca-6 LITE offers a competitively priced lower force option while maintaining the same sensitivity, silence, and high-speed precision performance as the rest of Iris’s force-controlled linear actuator lineup.
Located in Victoria, British Columbia, Iris Dynamics specializes in advanced linear electric motors/actuators utilized across industries such as aerospace, mining, robotics, manufacturing, and VR/AR training. The Orca Series motors are recognized for their fully back-drivable force-controlled/sensing design, emphasizing efficiency, precision, and durability. Unlike traditional force sensing linear actuators that rely on external load cells (force sensors), the Orca Series linear motors employ a novel motor driver technology that includes an integrated feed-forward force controller. This means they are fully compliant/back-drivable with zero torque ripple, eliminating the need for delicate and expensive external equipment.
Through a fully integrated, and encapsulated (waterproof) four-phase electronics package, the Orca Series motors apply the Lorentz force to permanent magnets. This results in a solid state single-moving-part design that requires minimal maintenance. These motors offer extremely low latency precision movements with integrated force sensing & control. They rank among the fastest linear actuators in their size class, are waterproof (IP68), and are some of the quietest linear actuators available today with <20dBA noise levels.
Orca-6 LITE broadens the Orca Series lineup by offering both lower force and cost options, while still adhering to Iris Dynamics' rigorous sensitivity and performance standards. This expansion increases the range of applications benefiting from the unique capabilities of the Orca Series.
By consistently leading in technological advancements, Iris Dynamics continually redefines the linear motor industry, serving the diverse needs of various sectors.
