      Motorize your ideas with the FIRGELLI Classic Rod linear actuator. Lift, slide, push, or rotate another object as the piston extends and retracts to exert the force needed for your automation project. 


      These classic linear actuators come in nine different stroke lengths: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 24-inch strokes are available, letting you select the right size for any build. Classic Rod Linear Actuators also have maximum load capacities options of 35-, 150-, and 200 lbs. for each stroke length. Neither weight nor distance will be too great for your device. All models are compatible with 12V input sources (or 24V where available). 

      Compact and versatile, the Classic Rod Linear Actuator is available in various strokes with forces ranging from 35 – 200 lbs.  Manufactured with high-grade aluminum and built-in limit switches this actuator provides consistent, reliable performance with zero maintenance for all your automation projects.


      Manufactured with longevity in mind, our classic linear actuators are built to last. All structural components are made from aerospace-grade aluminum for lightweight yet rugged performance, and the IP54 rating lets you trust that your unit will be dust and splash-resistant enough to withstand the elements. For more on IP ratings and what they mean, we have an in-depth article.  For added safety, internal limit switches deactivate the unit once the arm has reached maximum extension/retraction, protecting the device and your build. 

      3D CAD models of this actuator can be found under the 3D model tab or 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 these actuators with switches, remotes, speed controllers, and Arduino or other Micro-controllers. 

      Features and Benefits

      • Internal limit switches automatically shut off the unit at the end of the stroke - This protects you and your equipment from possible damage.
      • Huge range of stoke options as standard:  1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 24 inches are available - Giving you more flexibility.
      • Delivering multiple force options from 35 to 200 lbs - Giving you even more flexibility 
      • IP54 rated – dust and splash-proof - Because it never hurts to have more protection than you actually need 
      • Maintenance-free - Gives you more free time to do more important things
      • CE and RoHS certified - for extra comfort knowing they are certified for safe use. 


      Precision-engineered for consistent, accurate performance, FIRGELLI's Classic Rod Linear Actuators are designed with the user in mind. Varying stroke length,  force limit, and voltage compatibility let you choose the best configuration for your automation project, and the toughness and simplicity of each component make for a reliable subsystem that can meet the demands placed upon it. Why choose anything else?
