Looks like the right forum for my question
So i am building a 1:1 scale car on remote control. I already have alot of stuff worked out / and functioning.
But I am concerend with the (DUTY CYCLE) of 10%
(I use the actuators only at max 30 to 40 % of there maxium capability of what they can really pull-or push) the other way around is no load at all)
My question…what is the max limited time to use a actuator? So if you use it for continues 2 minutes / 18 minutes cooldown…etc. But could I also use the actuator for 30 to 60 minutes and then cooldown for couple hours? So whats the max use for the actuator.
I use this one by the way: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=321133755182&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123
And are there other actuators with longer duty cycle (without breaking the bank :P) Dont want to use PWM because that will make the actuators to slow.
