      Our Deluxe Linear Actuators are named this because they are very quiet, have a worm gear drive mechanism which reduces friction thus offering better duty cycle and life span, and are great for home automation projects where noise is an issue. These Actuators are fast too, at 3" per second with 100lbs force.

      Be aware that due to the drive gearing method, this actuator will back drive under higher loads with no power applied to the actuator. using a gas spring of the correct rating will alleviate the back drive.Another possibility is to use an SPDT relay to work as a back-emf brake.

      The Deluxe line of Rod Actuators were developed with demanding motion applications in mind. The Deluxe line of linear actuators come in one variation, capable of pushing and pulling up to 100 lbs of force, while still moving at up to 3 inches per second at no load. Designed with quiet and smooth operation in mind, the Deluxe Linear Actuator line features a worm drive system incorporated into the casing along with factory built-in limit-switches, high-grade materials, and clevis mounting points on each end of the actuator for flexibility. This variation of linear actuator has an IP66 rating which makes it dust-tight and resistant to powerful water jets from all directions, without immersion.

      Use either MB3 brackets or MB3U brackets for heavier duty applications.
