“Electric” refers to the type of Actuators used to operate certain devices and these can be broken down into different voltages.
12 volt, 24 volt and 240 volt are the three main types of linear actuators used for window automation purposes.
With 12 and 24 volts being a favorite for the Agricultural, Automotive and Marine markets.
Each type will require a different input voltage and control card.
The 12 and 24 volt units having a huge amount of different speeds, forces, waterproof ratings and sizes to give a multitude of options for a particular application.
The 240 volt versions are also a very good option where the actuators are a long way from the switch control where voltage drop will be an issue due to the long power cables being required.
But the 240 volt versions must be installed by a licenced electrician.
