These Mini linear actuator motors are designed to be used in small spaces. Offering 15 lbs force they are ideal for home and automotive automation projects. They are easy to install, run on 12v DC power, and boast a long lifespan with no maintenance. Our brackets make them very easy to install.
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.
The growing interest the average person has taken in automation has sparked a new trend of ever-smaller sizes to compliment a wide range of small scale automated applications. Firgelli Automations is the first manufacturer to produce such a unit, and has been on the leading edge of improvements for this market. The Mini Linear Actuator has uses from the aerospace industry to the at home hobbyist. Produced with high-grade aluminum and quality internal components, this little unit is capable of smoothly producing 15 lbs. (6.8 kg) of force with minimal noise.
Mounting is as easy as using two clevis-type brackets, attached via a heavy duty quick release pin, allowing for simple and efficient assembly and operation. Two wires leave the robust casing and are used to power the unit, reversing this polarity will send the shaft in the opposite direction. A system such as this can be easily controlled with our available wireless systems, timers, or rocker switches.
