CDA to Add 1/2 Frame Motor
September 5, 2012

New to the CDA lineup of modular actuators is the 1/2" motor and gear train. The 1/2" frame is a scaled down version of CDA's semi-custom modular product line and follows the same design practices used in the other seven frame sizes.

CDA's semi-custom modular design concept enables this new product to take advantage of CDA's extensive flight heritage, allowing for flight qualification by similarity of design in most space and aerospace applications.

These actuators will also take advantage of CDA’s heritage in extreme temperature and pressure environments such as those encountered in down hole Oil & Gas and cryogenic space exploration.

The 1/2" motor is initially being developed as a "long stack" in order to offer similar performance as the current 3/4" standard products. The expected nominal torque output is expected to be near 1 oz-in for the long stack but is scalable to other configurations as necessary.

Please contact us if you would like any additional information regarding this new product offering.
