I am looking into something that would allow me to move my screen up and down when/if needed.
Something motorized. I want to hide it when not in use.
Anyone have any idea on what I should search for?
What do you call these things?
Thanks for the reply. As I have never done anything like this part of it, any pointers?
Anything I should be looking for?
how would one of these work? I know what I am trying to do, just no idea how it all works. LOL
How much room should I allow to use one of these "linear actuator"
should I be looking as Gas or elec?
Sorry for asking so many questions, just never done this before
I'm not the expert, but I think i can help with some general stuff.
That would depend on the dimensions of the actuator. They make micro actuators that are only a couple inches long, others that are long enough to open a trunk lid or door and others that can raise a dump truck bed.How much room should I allow to use one of these "linear actuator"
Electric. Gas actuators are those that slow up the raising/lowering of your hatchback lid.should I be looking as Gas or elec?
Heh. neither have I. Realistically, though, mp3car.com isn't going to be your best resource for something like this. I suggest using http://the12volt.com as a starting point.Sorry for asking so many questions, just never done this before
Now, if you want to have PC control of an actuator, there's lots of information about how to control triggering of relays and whatnot.
