I am trying to repair a bike smart trainer, it has a broken linear actuator labeled FB5106M. I cannot find the exact model online for sale, does anyone know what model would be a drop in replacement?
Hi @caff and welcome to our forum.
It seems that RobotShop also doesn’t have that exact model.
Can you send us a datasheet of that actuator?
With datasheet, we could try and find comparable replacement.
I don’t have the datasheet for it hence my difficulty trying to figure out how to replace it.
It is hard to find exact replacement without datasheet.
Did you maybe try to contact manufacturer of your bike smart trainer?
Theoretically, you could measure the stroke of the actuator, measure the voltage, and then assume speed and force and based on that, search for a good replacement.
