These Actuators are equipped with built-in Bourns potentiometers so you can determine the absolute position of the actuator rod at any 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. The linear actuator motor 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. The MB10 Rod-End bracket will also fit this unit.
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.
