This Warner M1-D024-0100-A04 linear actuator has a 4" stroke and is suitable for use in light duty applications such as valve and vent adjustments. This M1 series unit is capable of moving loads up to 100 pounds at a rate of 0.45 inch per second. The linear actuator uses a Delrin screw nut for transferring the load, and internal limit switches automatically shut off the unit at end of stroke. The aluminum zinc alloy housing resists corrosion and provides protection from dirt, dust and humidity, and the unit is permanently lubricated. The 24VDC 3 amp motor has thermal overload protection. This linear motion actuator is suitable for use in applications such as light weight tilt or lift positioning and vise and clamp operations.
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.
