T16 Series 12V Linear Track Actuators
Actuonix's Motion Devices is again pushing the limits of linear motion with our all-new T16 series linear track actuators. These devices use a mount travelling along a track rather than an extending rod; this means that the T16 can be used in projects with even tighter space restrictions than our standard actuators. By design, linear track actuators are also much more tolerant of side loads, thus making these ideal for projects where a side load is present.
Our T16 linear track actuators are available in 3 stroke lengths: 100mm, 200mm and 300mm, along with 3 gearing options of 22:1, 64:1 or 256:1. With 256:1 gearing, the T16 boasts an impressive maximum force of 67lbs! In addition, we offer two series of this model, allowing you to choose how you control your device.
“P” Series: The “P” series linear track actuators do not have a built in controller; they do however, provide an analog position feedback signal that can be input to an external controller. The “P” series can be used with our Linear Actuator Control Board (LAC) which gives you the option of controlling them with USB (via our Configuration Utility Software), 0-5v, 4-20mA, RC Servo or PWM. The LAC board also offers on-board adjustment of speed, end limits and sensitivity.
“S” Series: The T16-S series is operated by reversing polarity on the actuator's two leads. It comes with end of stroke limit switches that will shut the unit down if it runs into it's end stop. These can be run with a DPDT switch, relay or brushed DC motor controller. T16 series actuators come in 12V input only.
All of our actuators come with a hardware kit for easy mounting.
