The staple diet of any automated application project is Firgelli Automations’ light duty line-up of actuators. Ranging from 35 – 200 lbs. (15 – 91 kg) of force, shipped with built in limit switches, manufactured with high grade aluminum, and coming in various stroke lengths, this is the beginning of most home automation and product automation enterprises.

Keeping with our promise of peace of mind and ease of use, we carry heavy-duty, clevis-type brackets which fit via quick release pin on either side of the units; alternatively we also offer brackets which will attach to the body of the actuator, giving you more flexibility in the placement of the unit while reducing the amount of custom fabrication that you may require to have all your components of an assembly work in cohesion. MB1 Mounting Brackets are used with these models.

All of our units are CE and ROHS certified, and come with a 12 month mechanical warranty to keep your units serving you best. Our company values revolve around providing quick and friendly customer service that will follow your experience with our products and staff.
