This Warner K2xG05-12v-08 B-Track linear actuator has an 8" stroke and a 5:1 gear ratio for use in rugged duty applications such as scissor and dump box lifts. This K2x series unit is capable of moving loads up to 600 pounds at a rate of 2 inches per second. The linear actuator uses a ball bearing screw nut for transferring the load, and has double-ended ball bearing motors and hardened gears for rugged duty use. Its protective coatings and O-ring seals provide an Ingress Protection (IP) 65 rating for protection against dust and liquids, and the unit is permanently lubricated. The 12VDC motor has thermal overload protection and has an operating voltage range of 10 to 16VDC. This linear motion actuator is suitable for use in applications such as paving equipment, deck and implement lifts for tractors, and agricultural spray booms.

Linear motion actuators are independent units that, when combined with a switch and power source, push or pull loads in a straight line. Actuator types (mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, piezoelectric, electro-mechanical, and telescoping) vary and their application is determined by the power source available, as well as the load and space requirements. Linear motion actuators are used in a variety of applications, such as computer disk drives, deck and implement lifts for tractors, wheelchair lifts on a vehicle, and flow control mechanisms, such as flood gates on a dam.
Warner Linear manufactures electromechanical actuators and controls. The company, founded in 1927, is headquartered in Belvidere, IL.
