      The FIRGELLI® Micro Pen Linear Actuator is only 16mm in dia yet packs a punch and also offers overload protection all in this tiny package. This model offers two force options: 20N (4.5-lbs) and 100N (22-lbs) with stroke lengths of 20mm 40mm 60mm 80mm and 100mm. These Micro Actuators are inline which is why the form factor of only 16m dia at its largest point is so small, giving you the ability to fit them into the smallest spaces for the ultimate in hidden motion control capabilities.

      Mounting Points

      Mounting these Micro Actuators is simple. Each end of the Actuator has 2 clevis holes that are 3mm dia (0.118" dia) so that a 2-3mm screw can be used to secure them. In addition, the moving end shaft of the Micro Actuator is able to rotate up to 180 degrees so that the holes do not need to line-up with the motor end of the Actuator body. 

      Mounting the Body of the Actuator is also an option, you can mount to the durable plastic motor body or the aluminum shaft if desired. The benefit of using the 2 round clevis holes of the Actuator is that the Actuator is able to rotate and swivel as its moves which is likely for a lot of applications. 

      Control Options:

      These Micro Actuators are a simple 2 wire configuration, this means that you simply supply a 12v DC power source to make the Actuator move, and reversing polarity will change its direction. Most people use a Rocker-Switch to perform this action, or perhaps a remote control system that has 2 buttons (Up and Down) 

      These Micro Actuators are well suited for RC model toys, Robotics, consumer electronics, hidden flaps & panels etc.
