The L12-S is a micro-sized linear actuator, meaning it provides linear motion in a small form factor. It is designed to move loads with different stroke lengths, making it suitable for applications that require precise and limited movement.
This actuator is equipped with built-in limit switches, which serve as end-stop sensors. These switches detect the physical limits of the actuator's travel and provide feedback signals to the controlling system, preventing any potential damage caused by overextension or over-retraction.
The L12-S features a reduction gear ratio, which allows for higher torque output and smoother operation, enabling the actuator to handle moderate loads effectively.
The actuator operates using a 12-volt power supply, which is a common power source available in many electronic systems. It is compatible with Arduino boards and can be easily integrated into Arduino-based projects.
The actuator is built with high-quality materials to ensure durability and reliability. It consists of a compact brushed DC motor, a precision lead screw mechanism, and an aluminum alloy housing. The actuator's small size and lightweight design make it suitable for applications with limited space or weight constraints.
The L12-S actuator finds applications in various fields, including robotics, automation, mechatronics, and DIY projects. It can be used for tasks such as precision positioning, linear motion control, gripping mechanisms, camera focus control, and more.
