Actuonix Motion Devices pushes the limits of linear motion with our T16 series linear track actuators. Also known as a mini or micro track actuator, each device uses a mounting block instead of an extending rod. The T16 linear track actuator is well-equipped for projects with tight space restrictions. These linear track actuators are also more tolerant of side loads than standard actuators.
The T16 mini track actuator is available in three stroke lengths: 100mm (3.9"), 200mm (7.9") and 300mm (11.8"), along with three gearing options: 22:1, 64:1 or 256:1. These combinations make the T16 mini track actuator versatile and ideal for a variety of applications.
The T16 mini track actuator is offered with two different control options.
T16-P Series Linear Track Actuators
The T16-P series linear track actuators do not have a built-in controller; instead, they 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 (LAC) board, which offers on-board adjustment of speed, end limits and sensitivity and gives you the option of controlling them with:
USB (via our Configuration Utility Software)
PWM (This input is 5V tolerant, however the % duty cycle range will differ)
T16-S Series Linear Track Actuators
The T16-S series is operated by reversing polarity on the actuator's two leads. The linear track actuator comes with end-of-stroke limit switches that will shut the unit down if it runs into its end stop.
T16-S linear track actuators come in 12V input only and can be run with the following:
Brushed DC Motor Controller

Frequently Asked Questions About Linear Track Actuators
We've compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you better understand linear track actuators and how they can benefit your projects.
What stroke lengths are available for mini track actuators?
As mentioned, our T16 series comes in 100mm (3.9"), 200mm (7.9") and 300mm (11.8") stroke lengths.
How can I ensure the longevity and reliable performance of my linear track actuator?
Regular maintenance is crucial, including keeping the track and housing clear of moisture and contaminants. Always monitor for signs of wear or damage as well. Avoiding excessive load/stall conditions goes a long way toward improving the longevity and reliable performance of your linear track actuator.
For which applications do track actuators work best?
Because of their sliding motion, track actuators are best for applications that have limited space.
What is the maximum force and speed for the T16 mini track actuator?
It depends on the specs. For example, with 256:1 gearing, the T16 mini track actuator boasts an impressive maximum force of 67 lbs. With 22:1 gearing, the T16 can achieve a maximum speed of 46mm/s (1.8"/s).
