Actuonix P-series feedback actuators feature an internal potentiometer for position feedback. They are ideally suited to automatically controlled positioning systems, but they can also be driven manually. The –P actuators have no built in controller, but do provide an analog position feedback signal that can be input to an external controller.
The “P” series lineup can be used as a linear servo by connecting the actuator to an external controller such as the LAC board offered by Actuonix. This control board reads the position signal from the “P” series actuators, compares it with your input control signal then commands the actuator to move via an onboard H-bridge circuit. The LAC allows any one of the following control inputs: Analog 0-3.3V or 4-20mA, or Digital 0-5V PWM, 1-2ms Standard RC, or USB. The RC input effectively transforms your L16 into a linear servo, which is a direct replacement for any common hobby servo used in RC toys and robotics.
