      Based on our popular P-Series Linear Actuator models, we gave this model a Boost in Motor size to be able to offer more Force - Now up to 400 lbs. These units still retain all the same compact and versatile body shape while incorporating a larger upgraded DC Motor are the beginning of most home and product automation enterprises.

      The High Force P-series model is capable of 400 lbs dynamic force and 800 lbs static force. These units come equipped with built-in limit switches, are manufactured with high-grade aluminum outer and inner tubes, and come in various stroke lengths.

      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. 

      Features and Benefits

      • Internal limit switches automatically shut off the unit at the end of the stroke - This protects you and your equipment from possible damage. For adjustable limit-switch linear actuators try our new Adjustable limit switch Actuators
      • Huge range of stroke options as standard:  2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24, and 30 inches are available - Gives you more flexibility.
