The PQ12 series are the smallest linear actuator that we offer. It weighs only 15g and features a stroke length of 20mm. The PQ12-P micro feedback actuators feature an internal potentiometer that can be used to provide position feedback. They do not have an internal controller or end-limit switches.
You can use your PQ12 -P as a Linear Servo using the LAC (Linear Actuator Control) board listed in the "Controllers and Switches" section here. This combination has all the same functionality as
the L12-I plus USB support, speed control, sensitivity control, position control, and adjustable end limits.
If you're looking for the smallest linear actuator that can handle a load of up to 11lbs then the PQ12 is for you.
The PQ12-P comes in 6 unique models featuring:
- Stroke length of 20mm (0.78")
- 3 gearing options for maximum forces between 18N (4lbs) and 50N (11lbs)
- Available in 6V or 12V
You can find our PQ12 micro linear actuators in a wide variety of robotics applications across several industries. OEM manufacturers trust Actuonix Motion Devices to provide high-quality micro linear actuators that they trust in their products.
For an example of the PQ12 in action, check out the YouBionic prosthetic hand in the video below, driven by five PQ12 micro linear actuators.
