C16

The Airex C16 Ironless Linear Motor offers precision and high performance within a thin 13 mm (0.5”) profile. The magnet track is supplied with counterbored through holes while the motor coil has provision for either side or top mount. A high flex 5-conductor shielded cable includes connections for both a delta or wye connected three-phase motor coil and optional positive temperature coefficient thermistor.

This motor is available with four different coil lengths, each with a different force rating. When operated as a linear motor, the net travel of a C16 system is equal to the length of the magnet track minus the length of the coil assembly. For use as a single-phase voice coil, the maximum recommended travel is approximately 80% of the width of the rare earth magnets on the track or 13 mm (0.5”).
