XLA Miniature Linear Actuator
(open-loop and closed-loop)

Meet the XLA Series, the world's smallest high-speed actuator with integrated encoder

The XLA is a piezo-driven linear actuator that comes in two versions:
- Open-loop version: integrated controller, end-to-end motion (using limit switches). Very compact and small.
- Closed-loop version: external controller (XD-A) + integrated position sensor (= go to any position)

Compact & light mini actuator

The Xeryon ultrasonic mini linear actuator is a precise and very fast micro actuator driven by our Crossfixx noiseless ultrasonic piezo motor. This allows fast positioning with nanometre accuracy in the version with integrated encoder or fast point-to-point motion using limit switches in our open-loop model. The self-locking piezo motor holds the position of the actuator when it is not powered. As a result, energy consumption and heat generation are considerably reduced. The XLA is one of the smallest closed loop actuators available on the market today! Not small enough? We also design custom actuators for your specific product!
