Linear Actuator Project #2 How does this look?

Aside from my other discussed project, this one is a little different. I just want to control the linear actuator which will only move in a repeated pattern. This is my first attempt and I’m in the learning stages so can anyone tell me if this will work aside from the code which is another topic. I also wanted to know if I could test it using the servo sweep example?

List of components:

-Arduino Uno

-Pololu Linear Actuator with feedback

-Pololu Motor Controller

Arduino is powered via USB, the Pololu via a wall wart.

Looks like it correctly matches the directions for the linear actuator:

Yes that was the easy part, what about the Uno connections?

Oh. Perhaps you should have said that you were only questioning about the Arduino connections. That would have saved me some research.

Yes, they look fine. RX on Arduino to TX on controller (and vice-versa) along with common Ground.

Hey!

Can you please let us know, how you connected it to ardunio? Mabye a simple sample code how to control the actuator?

Thank you so much!
