FIRGELLI® Automotive Blogs

Here is a selection of Articles written with Automotive applications in mind. FIRGELLI products are perfect for automating many features in all vehicles. Program the rooftop solar panels on an RV to track how much power you're generating, or use it as a backup during those cloudy days when plugging into shorepower isn't an option!

We're not just talking about a little automation here. Actuators can be used to automate your entire vehicle from start to finish! With options like rooftop solar panels and an automated door that opens on command, there's no limit in what you can do with our great selection of Actuators.
