These Actuators have built in potentiometers inside them so you can determine the position of the actuators at any point in time. The potentiometers are a Bournes 10 turn potentiometer with 10K Ohm resistance
A good way to connect the Feedback actuators to a feedback reading device we recommend using an Arduino board.
Using the Arduino board you would be able to define pre-set positional limits for your actuator which can be ideal for certain applications.
For all applications requiring feedback, our Bournes potentiometer equipped linear actuator line is your solution. Offering two variations in the line-up, the 35 lb dynamic force or 150 lb dynamic force linear actuator, your intelligent system for your project just got a lot more versatile. This line is constructed of high grade materials: an aluminum inner and outer tube paired with a zinc alloy housing, resulting in enhanced corrosion resistance for a long service life. As with all of our linear actuators these variations both come equipped with factory built-in limit switches as well as a clevis mounting point on each end to ensure easy fitment. The potentiometer feedback runs on a 10K ohm 3-wire system, and the linear actuator is controlled by a two wire system where reversing the polarity will retract the actuator; this system is easily wired to circuit boards for intelligent control, as well as relays, switches, and more.
