    Hay there,

    I found these Firgelli linear actuators:

    Did anyone tried these actuators instead of the SNC5/6?

    The speed looks okay, also the stroke, but I am in doubt concerning the duty cycle.(Duty cycle 20% (2min on/8min off)

    What do you guys think?

    they would work, but you need a feedback system on them for actual accurate motion, not just up and down.
    Motors might wear out with the abuse we give them as well. Duty cycle.
