Linear Drive BGR 010

The compact and robust linear drive

The linear drives of the 010 series are at the forefront of the digitalization of machines. They were originally developed for electrically controlled throttle adjustments on diesel engines. Today, they can be found wherever fixture components, buildings or machines must be moved by remote control.

Two features are responsible for the electric cylinder BGR 010's success: These drives have been specially designed for confined spaces and harsh operating conditions; thus, they are compact and robust.

The advantages of linear drive BGR 010:

  • Compact: Specially built for confined spaces.
  • Robust: Impact-resistant aluminium housing with protection class IP54 (static)
  • Durable: High-quality, maintenance-free drives
  • Safe: Reliable end position limiting and overcurrent protection
  • Durable: Above-average duty cycle of up to 40%


Position feedback can be flexibly configured

To ensure that the electric cylinder can be optimally integrated into your system, the position feedback signals can be flexibly configured.

End position feedback signals are available potential-free or potential-linked (non-isolated) as well as (for types LH10, LH11 and LH950) a high-precision potentiometer.

Easy installation thanks to the customized adaptation options

The wide range of options means you can tailor these linear drives exactly to your needs:

  • Stroke length: The stroke length can be easily adjusted from the outside. Special customized stroke lengths or installation lengths are also available on request.
  • Gearing: Choose between three versions with different combinations of power and speed.
  • Hanging mechanisms can be selected as needed. We can also customize the adapters and couplings individually to fit your requirements. Just ask us!
  • Operating voltage: Choose between linear drives 12V and 24V.
  • Cable length and plug: The cable length and connections / plugs can be customized on request.


Typical applications for the linear drive BGR010

In addition to the original application – for gas adjustment in diesel engines – the BGR 010 linear drives are used in many other areas, including:

Agricultural machinery:

  • Adjusting grain sieves
  • Folding down straw choppers
  • Positioning chaff spreaders

Mobile and off-highway:

  • Format adjustment for conveyor belts
  • Locking security doors

Offshore and marine technology:

  • Tilting GPS antenna

Industrial and logistics:

  • Moving ventilation flaps
  • Adjusting machine parts
