The Voice Coil Technology

With this technology, unlike in standard electromagnets, it is the coil which moves independently from the axis. The current flowing in the coil reacts with the magnetic field of the permanent magnet. A mechanical force is thus created and transmitted to the mobile frame.


The advantages are many:


- bi-directional and proportional

- very lightweight (ideal for embedded systems)

- very durable (100 million operations)

- ultra fast (response time in micro seconds)

- extremely accurate positioning

- electronic controlling is possible

- long strokes are possible
