Feedback Rod Linear Actuators

Feedback Rod Linear Actuators

Firgelli Automations



These Actuators have built in potentiometers so you can determine the position of the actuator at any point in time. The potentiometers are Bournes 10 turn Potentiometers with 10K Ohm resistance.

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. 

With the Arduino board you are able to define preset positional limits for your actuator which is ideal for many different applications. 

For all applications requiring feedback, our Bournes potentiometer equipped linear actuator line is your solution. Offering three variations in the line-up, the 35 lb dynamic force, 150 lb dynamic force, or 200 lb dynamic force linear actuators, your intelligent system for your project just got a lot more versatile. This line is constructed of high grade materials: an aluminum inner and outer tube paired with a zinc alloy housing, resulting in enhanced corrosion resistance for a long service life. As with all of our linear actuators these variations come equipped with factory built-in limit switches as well as a clevis mounting point on each end to ensure easy fitment. 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
