Guys,

This may seem like a strange question, but does anyone If you can push AND pull
an unpowered L12 (100-100 or 100-210) actuator by hand???

Im trying to replace a HS 805 BB ...and it needs to be as strong as the 805BB but
be able to manually moved...

Not building a robot :happy:


Thanks,

Nat

You can push and pull on a linear actuator, but it will probably not move. Due to the screw type drive it can only be moved via the motor, which us usually a good thing (no power required to hold position).

Thanks mate,

The specs say there is a back drive force, just hoping someone
had played with one...:cool:
