Projects, How-to's, and Articles
One of our customers wanted to replace their air ram actuators with our Electric Linear Actuators to lift the roof up on their truck. In this application the Actuators are used slightly differently to how most other people use them
Check out these 4 videos. The customer here used a Track Actuator with 30" stroke to drop a TV from the ceiling
New home buyers at some point or another need to make a hard decision: make the TV the focal point of the room, or keep the fireplace or mantel piece the main attraction. For Mike, an avid handyman and IT professional, compromise was not an option either way.
What you will need for allowing remote control adjustment of your snow plow blade:
If you're just getting into Arduino, you may not be aware that you can't just connect a big motor to the pins of the board and start moving it. You have to use some switching mechanism to carry the high current load. You can use a motor driver or H-bridge, but the simplest, fastest way is to use a couple relays or a relay board. You have two options when using an Arduino with a linear actuator.
In this project we wanted to use a Linear Actuator Column lift to lift up out of a cabinet counter top a drawer that in this case holds an expensive bottle of wine and glasses but it really could be anything such as a safe, or anything.
Home Automation can be as simple as installing a TV Lift, a Pop Down TV or a programmable thermostat. Either way the aim is to simplify your life and help you live comfortably by automating everyday tasks and giving you access to your home when you're away or whilst your home via remotes and smartphones
Do you want to impress your guests with Drop down TV lifts? Then you are at the right place. You will not only save space but you can also maintain a beautiful view without covering it with television.
Firgelli Automations is proud to have such a varied and loyal client base. The following is an article which was sent to us which features a truck that was modified using two of our light duty rod actuators.
Over the past twelve years, Firgelli Automations has had the opportunity to supply a few thousand clients with linear actuators for applications including boat hatches, steering controls, anchors, and many more marine uses.
Are you new to actuators? Have you just learned what an actuator is? You're not alone, and we're happy to help! This page is for you, and we will try to include all the information we can that you need to make an educated decision when selecting what actuator is right for you. Also, we will be sure to update this article regularly with any information we think will be helpful.
The selfless and noble mission undertaken by the loving family of an equally loving and upbeat young man with cerebral palsy. They helped improve his quality of life by the combination of a power wheels truck, an actuator, and some real engineering skill.
At Firgelli Automations, we understand that most people aren't used to wiring motors or other electronics besides plugging a charger into a wall outlet. The following video was created to prove just how easy it is to install and operate a linear actuator.
Standing nearly 20ft tall, the flowers had to be as strong as they were beautiful. When buffeted with up to 60mp/h winds the folded structure of the flower buds held up impressively. The arid climate of the desert did not interfere with any of the mechanical workings of the masterpiece, and the linear actuators supplied by Firgelli Automations were not compromised by the wind or heat of the extreme environment.
