Great little actuators!

" I bought four of these actuators and wired them together in parallel (red wire to red wire and black to black) so that all four of them would work in unison. I did not use the positioning sensor wires for my application. The individual actuators extend (or retract) until they reach the end of their stroke and then they stop even if the power to the wires is still available. This is GREAT for wiring several actuators together, because when you provide power to the red and black wires, all of the actuators move together, YET if one moves faster than another, it simply stops when it reaches the end of it's stroke while the others "catch up" a moment later. All four of my actuators extend and retract at (nearly) the same speed, so it is only fractions of a second difference between the moment the first actuator reaches it's limit and the moment the last actuator reaches it's limit.
The motor is a simple 12vdc motor. Power to the red wire and ground to the black wire make the actuator move in one direction. Reversing the wires (power to black and ground to red moves the motor in the opposite direction.
These units are STRONG. In static mode (not moving) they will hold a lot of force before they move. They sound a bit mechanical when they move, similar to an electric can opener. They should not be used if SILENCE is important during the extension or retraction of the ram.
I have four of these, and four of the 3.93" units of the same design. They all work GREAT! "
