User Advice


To change the direction of travel simply swap the polarity of the power supply to the two actuator leads.

This actuator is designed primarily for compression loads, it will typically work OK in tension but may be more susceptible to damage from overloading. Shock loads through the mounting points should be avoided if possible.

The actuator motor may be run at a higher or lower than rated voltage as with any DC motor, but be aware that the limit switch circuit is not designed for higher voltages so should be disconnected if increasing the operating voltage and expecting high operating loads.

We cannot cover operation of actuators at above nominal voltage or rated load, although we can offer repairs at cost. Replacements are dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

The GLA750 is a compact and lightweight 12V DC (direct current) linear actuator available in six different stroke lengths (travel distances) of

30mm

(1 3/16"),

50mm

(2"),

100mm

(4"),

150mm

(6"),

200mm

(8") and

300mm

(12").

Despite its small size the GLA750 is able to provide a pushing or pulling force of up to 750N (76kg, 168lbs) at the rated voltage (and as with any DC motor operation at other voltages is possible with modified operating characteristics).

Need a faster actuator? Then please take a look at our GLA200 model with a 32mm/s no-load speed. Alternatively if you need a larger actuator capable of a much greater force then the GLA4000 model may be suitable for you.

GLA750 and GLA200 actuator dimensions, click to expand

Installation length:

105mm + Stroke length (distance from front to rear mounting hole centres). For example the installation length for a 150mm stroke is 150 + 105 = 255mm.

Mounting:

Two 6mm holes. One is towards the end of the piston rod, the other on the rear of the gearbox housing

Body material:

Aluminium piston rod and main sleeve & zinc plated steel gearbox and motor housing. Rated to IP64, suitable for most outdoor use

Certification:

This is a CE and RoHS compliant product

Gearbox type:

30:1, three-stage spur gears, all-metal

Screw type:

ACME, 29° thread angle

Limit switches:

Installed at the ends of travel. Click here to see a circuit diagram

Weight:

30mm: 700g
100mm: 820g
200mm: 960g
50mm: 730g
150mm: 890g
300mm: 1100g


Leads & Connector Options


The actuator comes with a 0.8m PVC insulated lead as standard (black external sleeve with two internal cores, one red and one black) with uncovered lead ends.

An option is provided for a DC power connector to be added (2.1mm internal diameter, 5.5mm external) on a 300mm lead, bringing the total lead length to 1.1m. The connector is designed to be directly compatible with our manual switch harness and DC extension lead, as well as our female screw-terminal to DC connectors.

Please contact us if you require an extended or custom lead.


Actuator Accessories


A range of accessories for the actuator can be found here, including mounting brackets (aluminium and steel) and mains power supplies.


CAD models of this actuator are available. If you would like a copy please contact us with your preferred stroke length (actuator size) and file format (STP or IGS formats readily available, others possible on request).
