SCANDVIK LINEAR ACTUATORS

We produce and supply a wide range of electrically powered struts to suit many different applications in addition to lifting engine covers and hatches. Our struts are being used to lift tables and steer consoles, to slide open roofs, as well as to hide barbecues and TV's after use. You can see them converting beds at the touch of a switch and even sliding security bars into position behind exposed windows! No limit to the imagination... Different solutions are available to get the most appropriate device for the specific job, with thrusts from 120 to 2,200 lbs, strokes from 2” to 9-1/2 ft., speed from 0.1 to 1.4 inches/sec on either 12 or 24 Volt DC supply. Both "push only" and "push/pull" versions are available, with or without encoder. But what all our struts have in common is having been designed and built to work in the marine environment with an IP65 rating: their structure of anodized light alloy protects the motor and the mechanical components from spray and salt. Replacement parts and repair service available at Scandvik!

To select the appropriate strut suitable for your needs, you have to consider several factors. For instance, if the purpose is to raise a hatch that is the only access to the compartment, we would advise using the “push-only” versions as these permit manual opening in the event of power breakdown. Otherwise an emergency access will have to be provided in order to, at least, unbolt the strut. Other factors to be considered are the point and the angle of thrust that significantly affect the effort required. Moreover, if the lift reaches the tipping point, you must use a “push/pull” version that allows for the opening and closing by the strut. For more details please request our instructions. The installation of a pair of struts to work together without encoder is possible only if both the struts required the same effort, otherwise it is necessary to choose the synchronized version with encoder. The pairs must be ordered as such: it is not possible to couple struts supplied as singles.

Cylinder, piston and brackets in anodized Aluminum.

HIGH SPEED VERSIONS: Ideal for handling structures with long stroke due to their high travel speed, not suitable for lifting. It is essential that long struts are properly supported if positioned horizontally to prevent flex.

Magnetic End of Stroke: Adjustable magnetic pick-up sensors can be placed at the appropriate locations along the cylinder to stop the movement of the piston in both directions.

Encoder: Struts for installation in pairs, equipped with encoded electronics and control unit to obtain a perfect synchronization, even when subject to different loads. It is possible to store up to four different and independent end positions, pre-set by the user at the time of installation, selectable with just a short press of a single button. Can also be used individually when such a precise movement is required, defining a different points of start and end of stroke. Comes with backlit push button control and programming control box.

  • Push-Pull Versions allows the same power in both directions (in and out).
  • Push-Only Versions allows to lift the struts by hand in case of lack of power or breakdown.
  • Available as a pair.
  • Supplied with an electronic control box for each strut to control and protect against overloads.
  • It's necessary to add a 3 positions switch with automatic return to the OFF state.
  • Available for 12 or 24VDC power.
  • Available with strokes ranging between 4" and 114".
