Auto return linear actuator


First post so be gentle! Apologies if this question has been answered before but I couldn’t find an answer.

I’d classify myself as a novice. I can hookup basic circuits and such.

I’m looking to create an auto return linear actuator with variable speed controller.

So power to the actuator extends it fully, when it achieves this it automatically returns and repeats.

The only input from me is to adjust the speed at which it completes a full cycle.

I’d greatly appreciate if someone could advise how I could achieve a solution and what parts I’d need to buy at the shop!

Thank you in advance.

I’ve answered my own question. It’s a reciprocating linear actuator I need!

Hey @Khalid87,

If you have more questions, feel free to ask :slight_smile:

Where would you find one of those I either 12 v or 24 v short travel.
