The International Society of Automation (ISA) announces the Building Automation Systems Division, for professionals who design, build, install, troubleshoot, operate and manage building automation systems, and who seek to adhere to best practices to ensure optimum system operation and performance. The division was formed to aid these professionals as they apply available standards and technology to building control systems.


Technical divisions are ISA membership groups that offer networking and educational activities to members around the world who work in the same industries or who have similar technical interests. Networking can be done via email discussions lists, in person at events and via newsletters. Technical division members are encouraged to write, review, and present technical papers at ISA symposia and ISA Automation Week; and to publish technical papers. Division members also plan and conduct ISA's annual symposia. ISA has 16 other Technical Divisions that are divided between two departments, the Automation and Technology Department and the Industries and Sciences Department.

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

The PQ12-R series of linear servos are the smallest affordable linear servo on the market today. Small enough to fit inside a tic tac box, it's very powerful with a maximum force of over 11lbs. It operates as a direct plug-and-play replacement for standard rotary servos, using the same standard 3 wire connector. Regardless of how you drive your servos, be it with an RC receiver, an Arduino board, or a VEX micro-controller, the PQ12-R servo will function in place of a regular servo, but with the added benefit of providing linear motion. They're available in a 20mm stroke coupled with gear ratio options of 30:1, 63:1 and 100:1 cover a large variety of applications. Our PQ12 is popular used in a variety of robotics applications, medical devices, radio control and 3D printable bionic hands. Our PQ12 is proudly designed in Canada by our in-house team of engineers and thoroughly tested before leaving our facility.
