    Hey peeps, i need to buy a couple of these Reciprocating Linear Actuator devices, it needs to be at least 95rpm or higher, and it must have a stroke of 150mm minimum.

    I can buy one to suite these requirements, but do i buy a 12v or 24v one for use here in Aust, i figure that the power adaptor/speed controller will have a US plug on it.

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/303912361394?hash=item46c2969db2:g:kqYAAOSwZ3Ffs55L

    Any Thoughts appreciated.

    Why does it have to be reciprocating , why not just a linear one

    Because

    I need it to operate like this one does (the same as the one that i linked to)



    The non reciprocating ones i found are cheaper, and they are slow as shit, and no way is going to do what i need it to do.

    Doesn't really matter if you get a 12V or 24V one, both will do the job. But since it has a US plug on the power supply it may only be able to handle a 110V supply.

    Not a major problem, 12V and 24V power supplies are pretty inexpensive if you need to replace it.

    From looking at the video I really don't want to know what you are going to do with it.

    Thank you Symon, nice reply.

    I emailed the seller 20 minutes ago about the plug, she just replied a few minutes ago with the following reply.

    "Thanks for your email. Yes, i will send the AU plug power supply. When you receive it you can use it directly"

    I also asked which voltage i need to order for Australia, she never answered that bit.

    Well... he needs something that goes one direction and back again at 95rpm, with a stroke that's 150mm/6" or more
    the only thing I can think of is that he's sifting a large amount of flour or dirt therfore he's either a baker or a keen gardener

    230-240V is the answer you are looking for.

    And this is exactly why i ask other people about electrical related questions, so i should be asking the seller this question, as i can't find any specs on this that will tell me.

    As far as the other comments being bandied around regarding the intended use for these items, well you know that i am not going to tell you because it is not relevant to the question being asked, and secondly, your guess would actually be 100% wrong anyway, we all know that these devices can actually be used for other purposes aside from making a thrusting sex machines :tongue::rolleyes:

    One day you just might see these devices in use on a project that i am working on, they may not even work in the way that i need them to, could be a total waste of time and money, but they should go close.:thumbup: and i am not buying the remote control or the frame.

    By not telling us the use or approximately the use we can not give meaningful advice , for one thing the devices you have shown will have very little strength and any reasonable force put on the unit will bend the shaft.

    Exactly what someone making a reciprocating sex machine would say.

    Fuck me drunk, i don't have to explain the purpose of the device for you lot, i need 2 of those exact devices, and i already know their capabilities as far as the push/pull strength, and what weight it is capable of moving, so nobody needs to ask, and it's intended use has absolutely nothing to do with the question that i was asking, which was to do with the 12v/24v rating and which one i should get for use in Australia.

    So fucking simple, obviously not for some of you lot.
