I am working on a school project which requires me to control a linear actuator with an Arduino Uno Rev3. I need to program a specific time for the actuator to extend/retract. I have tried to follow some of Progressive Automations tutorials but have had no luck.
I am using an Actuonix L16-R 6V linear actuator with direct power supply and use the RC signal cable to Pin13 in my Arduino.
I have basically copied and pasted the code provided by Progressive Automations.
They use an H-Bridge, but I do not think I need one, as I am using a 6V power supply and 6V motor.
I need help coding because I have basically no experience programming Arduino and do not really know how to begin. I have provided pictures of my setup and “circuit diagram” below.
