Very Fast Linear Actuator with potentiometer?
October 4, 2011
I'm trying to create controllable agile linear motion.
The idea was to use a low force high speed linear actuator with a potentiometer in combination with an H-Bridge and a picaxe to control to linear distance via a laptop. The problem seems to be finding the right linear actuator.
Most of the actuators I'm finding that have built in lineat pots are very slow...anyone know where I can find actuator to fit my needs...or potentially another mechanical solution that might satisfy my requirements.
Max Linear Resistance: 10-15lbs
Ideal Stroke Speed: 20+inches per second.
