Technical Note:
Motorized Linear Actuator Compatibility Guide

Many Newport manual positioning products can be motorized by using Newport motorized precision actuators. Once the manual positioner is chosen for an application, use the tables below to select the appropriate motorized actuator. Scroll down the tables grouped as Manual Linear Stages section, Manual Rotation Stages section, and Manual Mirror Mounts section, locating your choice of a manual positioner. Then go across the rows to see compatible motorized actuator(s). To see the complete array of Newport motorized actuators, please refer to Motorized Linear Actuator Selection Guide.

Compatibility Key

  Fully compatible1
  Compatible but may require standard interface adaptor and/or include small performance limitation
  Call your local sales office or contact us online (877-835-9620 in the U.S.).2
  Not compatible or recommended3
  1. In some cases, one must limit the travel range of actuators and these are specified in the note when the green dot is clicked.
  2. 'Yellow' may require custom interface adaptor or may include significant performance limitations in terms of travel length, load capacity and etc.
  3. For TRA Series Actuators (TRA6, TRA12, TRA25), only one TRA model is chosen as "Green" in most cases due to the travel length requirement. (eg. TRA6 or TRA25 can still be compatible with 460A-X but not recommended as TRA12 is an ideal choice with its 12mm travel range)
