These Heavy Duty Linear Actuators come in a variety of forces from 200lbs up to 1,000lbs force and strokes from 3" to 30" or custom strokes, if requested. They are a worm gear drive mechanism which means they are very quiet and offer a high efficiency as a result.
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.
Note: 200 lbs force in only available in 3", 6" and 8" stroke
The Heavy Duty line was developed with high standards in mind. Our clients demand the best quality and performance for their money, inspiring us to come up with such a rugged design. This versatile unit features an aluminum shaft to shed weight, internal limit switches, an aluminum alloy inner tube, as well as a high performance 12 volt DC motor which is capable of producing between 200 and 1000 lbs. (90-453 kg) of force.
No matter your application, installation doesn’t need to be a hassle. Required components consist of just two brackets, one for either side, with quick release pins for easy fitment and set-up. Controlling the unit is just as easy via a 2-wire system, making this unit a ‘plug and play’ type accession unique to Firgelli Automations.
*Due to the drive gearing method, this actuator will back drive under higher loads with no power applied to the actuator. Using a gas spring of the correct rating will alleviate the back drive. Another possibility is to use a relay in SPDT to work as a back-emf brake. See this tutorial for more information
