The L16 series is slightly larger version of the L12 series. It has an axial design that utilizes a powerful PMDC motor and a rectangular cross section for increased strength. But by far the most attractive feature of this actuator is the broad spectrum of configurations available.
Actuonix L16 series is available in three stroke lengths: 50mm 100mm or 140mm along with three force/speed combinations of 35:1, 63:1 or 150:1 gearing.
The “R” sereis use a standard hobby-type remote-control digital servo interface (CMOS logic), and are plug n’ play compatible with most RC receivers. The L16-R is 6v unit only.
These units are operated by reversing polarity on the actuator’s two leads. The “S” series has end of stroke limit switches to that will turn off the unit if it runs into its end stop.These can be run with a DPDT switch, relay and are perfect for home or vehicular automation projects.The L16-S is 12v only.
The “P” series actuators offer no built-in controller, but do provide an analog position feedback signal that can be input to an external controller. The “P” series can be used with our Linear Actuator Control Board (LAC) to give the “P” series the ability to be controlled with USB (via our Configuration Utility Software), 0-5v, 4-20mA, RC Servo or PWM. On board adjustment of speed, sensitivity and stroke limits are available via the LAC. The L16-P is 12v only.
