Any gadget that requires movement uses electric linear actuators. Each robot in the proposed Tesla Bot, for example, is expected to have 40 electro-mechanical actuators.
For the past 20 years, FIRGELLI® has been producing linear actuators, and this latest breakthrough allows users to perform things they’ve never been able to do before. Without having to open up the actuator or using any expensive electronics or software, it is now possible to alter the built-in stopping position. The FIRGELLI® Adjustable Limit Switch Linear Actuators feature a patent-pending mechanical limit switch device, providing end-users with unprecedented flexibility.
FIRST EVER – FIRGELLI® Patent Pending – Externally Adjustable limit switch Linear Actuator. FIRGELLI® has invented and developed the world’s first-ever externally adjustable limit switch Linear Actuator. This patent-pending design allows the user to finely adjust the final one inch of stroke on the Actuator to allow for easier installation and integration of the Linear Actuator into any application.
Electro-mechanical linear actuators typically have built-in non-adjustable limit switches that stop the actuator when it reaches either its fully extended or fully retracted position. So, for example, a linear actuator with a 6″ (inch) stroke will automatically stop once the rod has extended the full 6″ (inches). The issue is that not all applications will require the exact stroke length that is factory-set.
Users can modify the final 1″ (inch) of travel on the new FIRGELLI® Adjustable Limit Switch Linear Actuator to produce a bespoke stroke length that properly matches their application, making final fit and installation considerably easier. Furthermore, the stroke can be modified over time to correct for any external conditions that may require changes over time, such as material expansion and contraction, and application wear and tear.
This patent-pending technology has been included in FIRGELLI®’s Premium Line of Linear Actuators, which are used in a range of industries and projects such as robotics, home automation, recreational vehicles, and even entertainment. Even Better the new Technology does not impact the Actuators IP Rating at all, meaning that FIRGELLI® did not have to reduce the Linear Actuators IP Rating just to accommodate this new feature, allowing customers to get all the benefits of having Adjustability options without losing any of the great benefits that come standard in FIRGELLI’s® Premium line of Actuators.
FIRGELLI was established in 2002. The brand name was invented by the founder, Robbie Dickson, who designed and manufactured the first linear actuators ever sold online and made available to the general public. Firgelli is now recognized worldwide as being a global provider for TV Lifts, linear actuators, and many other products designed to support a huge range of industries and applications.
“FIRGELLI is a dependable source for trusted names such as NASA, SpaceX, General Motors, Tesla Motors, General Atomics, and many more. The applications of our products extend from TV lifts and automated furniture to armored vehicles, all the way to advanced air-brake spoilers for supercars” said Robbie Dickson, CEO.
