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 sizes and two control types:
- Open-loop version: integrated controller, analog/PWM speed and direction control (and limit switches). Very compact and small. A break-out board is available for testing.
- Closed-loop version: external controller (XD-A) + integrated position sensor (= go to any position)

XLA closed-loop example
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 for high speed motion and precise positioning. The open-loop model has (adjustable) magnetic limit-switches. 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 the fastest actuator of this size in the world! The XLA is a real OEM product but a break-out board is available for test setups.
Not small enough? We also design custom actuators for your specific product! Contact us to talk about a custom actuator design!
