In today's how to post we will be going over the steps necessary to combine our linear actuator control systems together. Now in order to combine controls systems you must prevent short circuiting as this can damage your components. Since the control boxes connect actuators to ground when not activated we cannot use them for direct control in parallel. Continue reading
Just recently here at Progressive Automations we have unveiled a new section in our selection of control systems, PLC controls. We've partnered with Arduino in order to bring you the highest quality PLCs on the market and so you can have more control options than you ever thought possible with linear actuators. So what exactly is a PLC? Continue reading
In our last How-To we showed how to connect our AC-24 external limit switch to one of our AC control boxes, the PA-20. That process was made simple thanks to the 4-pin connector on the AC-24 and the PA-20, but what if you aren't using the PA-20 and need to connect the limit switch without using it's 4-pin connector? Continue reading
Here is our step by step guide on how to connect an external limit switch, AC-24, with one of our PA-20 control boxes.
First we need all the necessary equipment. We’ll be using a PA-20 Control Box, a PA-18 Track Linear Actuator, and of course an AC-24 Limit Switch. Let’s make sure we have all the equipment. Continue reading
Installing can be a simple, easy, pain-free process for anyone. If you find you require some additional help with installation, this guide should be able to set you on the right path. This guide is aimed at helping those with simple automation projects, such as home automation projects, get the best installation possible.
