Cost-effective performance
Less downtime, less maintenance, faster setup, clever control and more accuracy means better use of your application.

Ready for the future
In our terminology, to be ready for the future means having the most convenient, up-to-date and clever features for performing best in regard to control, accuracy and speed.

Competitive edge
Cost-effective performance and innovative technology for your application will help you enhance your competitive edge and Move for the Future.

Part of the solution – actuators with an integrated controller
Actuator solutions with integrated controllers (IC) give you a means to keep a competitive edge for your application. Installation and control have never been easier, and the options for customisation are many.

IC is the range of integrated control options for TECHLINE® actuators. These options provide everything from easy maintenance, control and installation, to a wide range of customisable settings and feedback that will help tailor the movement solution to your specific needs and application. 

Our range of actuators with IC options
A number of IC actuators are already available – and more are on the way. The options currently available can be divided into the following: 

IC Basic – the Plug & Play™ option
This straightforward actuator solution comes pre-configured to meet your exact requirements. We can customise stroke, speed, current limit and feedback of the actuator, as well as a number of other details.

IC Basic

IC Advanced – the customisable option
Choosing actuators with the IC Advanced option gives you a number of easily configurable options for adjusting speed, stroke and current limits via a user-friendly configuration tool.

IC Advanced

IC Parallel
This self-configurable option allows parallel drive of up to eight actuators. A master actuator with an integrated H-bridge controller controls up to 7 slaves. No control boxes or complicated cabling are required.


IC BUS – The BUS communication option
This option gives you unlimited customisation and enhanced monitoring - all with the added benefit of BUS communication. We can supply IC actuators with either CAN bus SAE J1939, LIN bus or Modbus RTU RS485 according to your preference.
