With the PA-04 and PA-04-HS holding an IP rating of IP-66, these actuators are quite durable. This rating is designed to withstand dust ingress and protect against water exposure.
The key definition of these standard electric actuators is that they are multi-purpose. With a range of dynamic force between 100 lbs and 600 lbs in our standard models, optional feedback and hall effect sensors in others, and low noise operation, they truly are a versatile range.
Relative to our other types of actuators and given the capabilities of our standard linear actuators, they are quite cost effective. If cost is a significant factor these actuators may be your best solution without compromising on quality!
As our standard electric actuators are so multi-purpose, implementing them into domestic applications has significantly broadened. They can be seen in automated windows, doors, trap doors, bookshelves, beds and in many more areas of varying requirements. Cost-effectiveness is a key factor in their smart home popularity, allowing DIY enthusiasts to install them without feeling the burden of a high cost.
Standard linear actuators are integrated within various furniture types in order to either optimize space by hiding or retracting, or to make items easier to navigate. Our standard actuators are utilized in areas such as hidden TV cabinets, shelf lifts, kitchen appliances and other items of furniture that require significant force to motion.
Particularly regarding the PA-04 and PA-04-HS, they are a solid solution for outdoor use. We have seen past customers utilize our standard electric actuators in automated chicken coops, for example, where the IP66 protection rating comes into play.
Our standard linear actuators are just as described: the most multi-purpose devices in our catalog that can be implemented into wide variety of applications. These actuators are extremely versatile and the most fundamental actuators in our line-up, with a compact design and strong performance. With certain models featuring an IP66 protection rating, they also hold the ability to withstand certain elements in harsh environments, furthering the list of compatible applications. These actuators are the most cost-effective type of actuator in our catalog when analyzing the relativeness between capabilities and cost. Low noise is also an advantage of these actuators at <45 dBA, ideal for projects that require little sound when operating.
