    Parker's I-Force 310 Ironless Linear Motors offer high forces and rapid accelerations in a compact package. With continuous forces ranging from 49 N (11.0 lbf) to 262 N (58.9 lbf) and peak forces ranging from 218.9 N (49.2 lbf) up to 1170 N (263.2 lbf), the I-Force family offers a superior combination of performance and size. The I-Force patented I-beam shape with its overlapping windings allows for a higher power density in a smaller motor, improved heat removal, and added structural stiffness. In addition, the ironless (or air core) linear motor design has no attractive force toward the magnets. This allows for easy installation and zero cogging during motion. Ultra high-flex cables come standard with I-Force motors. In addition, Parker offers modular magnet tracks for unrestricted travel length. Incredibly smooth motion, high precision and high force density make the I-Force linear motors an ideal solution for your demanding positioning requirements.

    No attractive force toward the magnets:
    • Easier/Safer assembly and handling, smoother travel (no cogging)

    Overlapping windings:
    • Increased force density
    • Improved heat dissipation
    • Lower temperature rise
    • Smaller, less expensive motor

    Uses thermally conductive epoxy together with the windings:
    • Patented ironless motors design (RE34674) provides better heat dissipation

    Vacuum encapsulation process:
    • Allows motors to be used in high-vacuum environments
    • Rated at 10-6 torr, currently used in 10-7 torr applications

    Modular magnet track:
    • Precision ground 3-piece track
    • Unrestricted travel length
    • Two lengths of modular magnet tracks allow unlimited length of travel

    Embedded overtemp thermostat or optional thermistor:
    • Protects windings against overheating
    • Prealigned imbedded digital

    Hall effect devices:
    • lnternal thermal cutout switch protects coil

    Ultra high-flex cables:
    • Longer cable life, good for millions of cycles

    I-Force Patented I-Beam Design:
    Ironless motors consist of a forcer (windings), which rides between dual magnet rails. The forcer does not have any iron laminations in the coil – hence the name ironless. Instead, the copper windings are encapsulated and located in the air gap between the two rows of magnets. Because the motors are ironless, there are no attractive forces or cogging forces between the forcer and the magnet track. The ironless forcers have lower mass than their ironcore counterparts resulting in extremely high accelerations and overall dynamic performance. The ironless design has zero cogging and the lack of attractive force allows for extended bearing life and, in some applications, the ability to use smaller bearings.
