      Feedback actuator control using Arduino
      Spec Sheet


      These Actuators are equipped with a built-in Bourns potentiometers so you can determine the position of the actuator at any point in time.

      To connect the Feedback Actuators to a feedback reading device we recommend using an Arduino board. Click here for more information about how to use an Arduino board with our actuators.

      The potentiometer feedback runs on a 10K ohm 3-wire system, and the linear actuator is controlled by a two wire system where reversing the polarity will retract the actuator; this system is easily wired to circuit boards for intelligent control, as well as relays, switches, and more. The Feedback Rod Actuator Line uses the MB1 Mounting Brackets and/or the MB6 Brackets

      CAD models of this actuator can be found under Resources/3D Files. For further information review the specifications and technical drawings down below or visit our tutorials page for instructions on how to use this actuator with switches, remotes, speed controllers, and Arduino.
