Deluxe Rod Actuators

Deluxe Rod Actuators


Spec Sheet


These Actuators have a worm gear drive mechanism which reduces friction thus offering better duty cycle and life span and are great home automation projects where low noise is a requirement. At 3” per second with 100lbs of force, these actuators are great for projects that require fast movement for heavier loads.

*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 an SPDT relay to work as a back-emf brake.
