When you need to know exact positioning of your actuators, the Optical Feedback series is what you need. This powerful, reliable actuator comes with a built in optical sensor that provides feedback when you need it. The Optical Feedback have no built-in controller, but do provide single phase pulses as position feedback signal that can be input to an external controller such as an Arduino.
They are equipped with a 10 hole optical encoder disk that with the gearing to the actuator output shaft will send 50 pulses/inch of stroke for the 35lbf unit and 100 pulses/inch of stroke for the 200lbf and 400lbf units. ( +/- 5 pulses)
There are three force options available ranging from 35 to 400 lbs. These units come equipped with built-in limit switches, are manufactured with high-grade aluminum outer and inner tubes, and come in various stroke lengths from 1" - 30".
