Find the Electric Actuator for You in Australia: TecHome Serves the Sydney, Mebourne and Adelaide Areas

Published: 24 Nov 2013

Looking for an electric actuator in Australia, but not sure which one is right for you? Let TecHome help you! Actuators can be a bit of a challenge for first time buyer, simply because there are a lot of questions to ask before you make your purchase. For which purpose or application do you require an actuator? How much weight do you need to lift? What sort of electric current is demanded by your chosen application? And questions and questions and questions!

If you have never purchased an electric actuator before, the above questions might read a bit like gibberish to you. Applications? Weights? Electric currents? How can you hope to answer these questions without help?!

Luckily, you don’t have to! At TecHome, we have been working for five years to help customers to pick out the perfect electric actuators in Sydney, Melbourne or Adelaide. We know that the process can be a bit overwhelming, but we also know how to help you answer the questions that need to be answered before you make a purchase.

The Differences in Electric Actuators

In essence, deciding which actuator you need to purchase comes down to understanding what these machines do and recognising the differences between certain actuators. In essence, an electric actuator is just a kind of motor that is used to automate linear motion. These motors can be used to slide doors open, lift heavy objects or perform other simple tasks. Electric actuators use a specific voltage of electric current, and then convert that energy into a pushing, pulling or lifting motion. Just like that, you’ve automated the movement of a door, a TV or whatever other heavy item needs to be moved frequently.

TecHome offers a range of different electric actuators. We carry 12 volt and 24 volt actuators, for instance; we also have a few different tiers of motors, depending on your chosen application. ‘General Purpose’ actuators, for instance, are for less demanding applications. These motors are less expensive than others, but can also not lift as much: they top out at about 250 kilograms. Industrial/Commercial actuators, meanwhile, are heavier duty motors that can handle weights of up to 1,000 kilograms.

Use TecHome’s Expertise to Pick out the Right Electric Actuator in Australia

If you are shopping for an electric actuator in Adelaide, Melbourne or Sydney, the information above can help you to determine, in general, what type of motor you need. If you need an actuator for some big application like opening a roof, you will expect to fit into the industrial/commercial tier. If you just need a motor for a single automatic door, on the other hand, a ‘General Purpose’ actuator may suit you better!

If you aren’t sure which motor is right for you, though, feel free to give us a call at TecHome. Whether you are shopping for an electric actuator in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide or some other city in Australia, we can provide you with the tips and guidance you need to choose the right actuator for your purposes. So give us a call today: we can’t wait to help you with your automation project!
