BTA - Brushless Torque Actuator

Extreme Speeds with the BTA Series

Johnson Electric’s BTA or Brushless Torque Actuator platform offers high-speed controllability in rotary stroke applications needed in material handling, valve control, high-speed shutter control, among others.

With a single-phase coil, stator bases, and a matching rotor pole, the design allows for a stroke of up to 45 degrees.

Since BTA technology does not require full stroke actuation, this product provides a much quieter operation due to the soft, shock-free cycling, eliminating the noise associated with end-of-stroke mechanical stops. With proper controls and application damping, it is possible to achieve exceptionally low dB levels.

The BTA product family is ideal for high-speed, high throughput diverting and sorting applications that require low noise and zero downtime for maintenance.

With the BTA series running at extremely high speeds, it works best in applications that require millisecond actuation speeds.
