We have prepared another step-by-step guide on how to connect and power a linear actuator, this time using a DC powered control box. You can check out our earlier post on how to connect using AC power here. For this demonstration we are going to use one of our most popular DC power sources, the PA-30.
Actuators are seeing more medical use every day, often replacing older pneumatic and hydraulic systems. Their applications are varied, and can range from the tiny (2" stroke) to the large (24" stroke). There are four main reasons that actuator usage is on the rise in the medical field:
Get your truck ready for winter with a snow plow actuator
With the arrival of the winter season comes that pesky winter weather, most notably heavy snowfall. Snow can cause a great deal of frustration and stress when it comes in large amounts, blocking off roads and driveways for people everywhere. When situations like this arise there is one piece of machinery that most of us turn to; the snowplow. And guess what powers most of those snowplows? Linear actuators.
