Rod Actuators


Actuonix manufactures four different types of rod actuators:


PQ12 Actuator Series:


Servo actuator


The PQ12 series micro linear actuators are ideal for applications requiring precise positioning and compact size. The PQ12 is available with end of stroke limit switches or with linear feedback along the full length of stroke. A complete closed loop system can be realized with the addition of an LAC board. The PQ12 comes with a stroke length of 20mm (0.8") and three force/speed combinations of 30:1, 63:1 or 100:1. The PQ12 comes in 3 types:

PQ12-R - RC servo for RC or Arduino - 6 volt only
PQ12-P - With analog feedback - 6 volt or 12 volt
PQ12-S - With end of stroke limit switches - 6 volt or 12 volt


L12 Actuator Series:
electric linear actuator
The L12 series is an axial design that utilizes a powerful PMDC motor and a rectangular cross-section for increased strength. By far the most attractive feature of this actuator however, is the broad spectrum of configurations available. Actuonix Motion Devices L12 is available in four stroke lengths: 10mm (0.4", available in "S" and "P" only), 30mm (1.2"), 50mm (2") or 100mm (3.9") along with three force/speed combinations of 50:1, 100:1 or 210:1 gearing.
The L12 comes in 4 types:

L12-R - RC servo for RC or Arduino - 6 volt only
L12-P - With analog feedback - 6 volt or 12 volt
L12-S - With end of stroke limit switches - 6 volt or 12 volt
L12-I - With self configuring internal controller - 6 volt or 12 volt


L16 Actuator Series:

Micro Linear Actuator

The L16 series is slightly larger version of the L12 series. It has an axial design that utilizes a powerful PMDC motor and a rectangular cross section for increased strength. But by far the most attractive feature of this actuator is the broad spectrum of configurations available. Actuonix Motion Devices L16 series is available in four stroke lengths: 30mm (1.2", available in "S" series only), 50mm (2"), 100mm (3.9") or 140mm (5.5") along with three force/speed combinations of 35:1, 63:1 or 150:1 gearing.
The L16 comes in 3 types:

L16-R - RC servo for RC or Arduino - 6 volt only
L16-P - With analog feedback - 12 volt only
L16-S - With end of stroke limit switches - 12 volt only


P16 Actuator Series:

miniature linear actuator

The P16 is the next generation of actuator from Actuonix Motion Devices. Featuring a compact side by side design with a planetary gearbox, these units offer higher speeds, higher forces and longer life than our other units. The P16 also offers 4 stroke lengths - 50mm (2"), 100mm (3.9"), 150mm (5.9") and 200mm (7.9") and 3 gearing options of 22:1, 63:1 and 256:1
with end of stroke limit switches or with linear feedback along the full length of stroke.
The P16 comes in 2 types:

P16-P - With analog feedback - 12 volt only
P16-S - With end of stroke limit switches - 12 volt only
