What Type of Manual Switch Do You Need?
We have a lots of types of manual electrical switches, so how do you know which one is best for controlling a 12V or 24V linear actuator. As you are most likely wanting to extend and retract your linear actuator, you’ll want to use a 3 position toggle switch (Double Pole Double Throw (DPDT) ON-OFF-ON switch), or manual controller with wire handle.
3 Position ON-OFF-ON Toggle Switch
3 position toggle switch will allow you to change the direction of the input voltage to the actuator, which is needed to change directions, while a double throw gives you two ON positions, and OFF position; one ON position for extension, the other ON position for retraction, and OFF position for stop. Maximum load current is 15A.
Manual Controller with Wire Handle
1) 24V Manual Controller with Wire Handle for 2000N Linear Actuator
The manual controller input voltage is AC100 ~ 240V, DC 24V output and maximum output current is 3A;The control handle has two buttons, instantaneous working mode.
2) 12V 24V 60W Electric Linear Actuator Manual Controller with Wire Handle and AC-DC power supply
The input voltage is AC100 ~ 240V, DC 12V or 24V output and maximum output current is 5A/12V or 2.5A/24V;The control handle has two buttons, instantaneous working mode.
3) Linear Actuator Wired Handheld Manual Controller
This is a handheld wired manual controller with Up and down buttons.
Suitable for manually controlling the extension and retraction of DC 12V 24V electric linear actuators.Maximum working current is 5A.
