L16-S micro linear actuators are a big brother to the L12-S line.. The L16-S comes with end-limit switches that will turn off power to the motor when the device reaches 1mm of the end of stroke. Internal diodes allow the actuator to reverse away from the limit switch. The limit switches are set at the factory and are not adjustable. If you need a custom stroke length actuator please see this article.
Our S series are our simplest micro linear actuators. Apply voltage to the device and it will extend, reverse the polarity and it will retract. This can be accomplished manually with a DPDT (Double-Pole Double-Throw) switch, wirelessly using our wireless linear actuator controller or using an H Bridge circuit. Our "S" series actuators can not be used with the LAC control board.
The L16-S is is very compact and weighs in at 56g-84g, depending on the stroke length that you choose. It's size makes it an ideal device for robotics applications as well as other projects with tight space and weight requirements.
Some industries where the L16-S actuator is in use:
The L12-S line includes 24 unique models featuring:
Optional stroke lengths of 50mm, 100mm and 140mm
3 gearing options for maximum forces between 50N (11lbs) and175N (39lbs) and speeds between 8mm/s and 32mm/s
