Installation Instructions

Precision linear actuators can be quickly and easily mounted using any of the available mounting and adapter options. However, there are some things to consider when mounting the actuator. When using the clevis type of mounting, solid mounting pins should be used (avoid using roll- or spring-type mounting pins). The mounting pins (or trunnions) should be parallel to each other as shown below. It is also recommended to attach the load so that the force acts along the axis of the actuator. Any actuator using side-angle brackets, tapped holes or mounting feet should be mounted so that the cover or extension tube does not bend or is subjected to bending forces during standstill or operation.
