Application Spotlight: Solar Panel Actuation
Linear motion in this satellite dish application is provided by a Nook Double Clevis Jack. Double clevis jacks are used when it is necessary to move a load through an arc, such as tracking antennas, hinged doors, solar trackers or air dampers. Machine Screw and Ball Screw Jacks from 1 ton to 15 ton capacities can be supplied with double clevis mounts. One clevis is mounted on the end of the lift shaft and the other clevis is welded to a heavy duty stem cover, which is welded to the housing. Double clevis designs are available with optional accessories such as boots, motor mounts, right-angle reducers, motors, encoders and rotary limit switches.
