electric actuators

there's someone who can tell me if exist any micro electric actuators/pistons for arduino? :confused: :confused:

The simple answer to a simple question is "yes".

But, if you are really interested in a intelligent answer, ask an intelligent question.

What do you mean "for arduino"? Be more specific in what you want, and then Google can really help.

Like a microsolenoid?

Apply 5V, and the piston extends. This one needs quite a bit of current, nearly 1.1 amp, so you'd need a wallwart to source current and a decent logic level, low Rds, N-channel MOSFET to sink current thru it.
And a 1N4001 diode to dissipate current back into it when the MOSFET turns off.

The Arduino can control every single actuator ever made.

I can think of some hydraulic machines that could only be controlled by an Arduino if the Arduino was built into a human-size robot.

You also need to define the word "micro" in your context.

The one CrossRoads linked is 20x12x11mm with a 4.5mm stroke but that might count as "huge" to you.

So… my point stands?

Hi,
Welcome to the forum.

Please read the first post in any forum entitled how to use this forum.

What is the application for your actuators?

Thanks… Tom… :slight_smile:
