LEGO Linear Actuator, Functional Test




What do you think about this video?

Alex Yuan: youve got some stall try to get the ratio higher anyway, nice work!

MONTYthePYTHON: @lotusiotus thats what i would have said, except for the fact that he's demonstrating how it can be done electrically.... think about the point of the video first. if the video was about the truck, i would have said to use pneumatics, but its not about the truck.

7249xxl: @Conchinhas your gears can get broken if you have that and the xxl electrick engine to i had that to

Marc Irwin: Lego need a way to bracket together multiple linear actuators, they have a part like that for the pneumatics.

TechnicBRICKs: Hi, no the clicking sound you hear, are the small external gears slipping at situations where torque is too high.

Marc Irwin: Lego needs a way to bracket together multiple linear actuators, they have a part like that for the pneumatics.

TechnicBRICKs: Yes I noticed, but the purpose was just to show the working principle and applicability at TechnicBRICKs. I didn't want to make it even larger for this goal. Anyway you are right if for a more definitive application. Thanks! Fernando

BloodNinja7: 2 minutes of something going up and down? Wow, fun.

SuperControlRoom: @BloodNinja7 not to be offensive, but some ofus don't know what a linear actuator was. I was looking for a sort of lego hydraulic, i s going to use syringes but this looks better

TechnicBRICKs: In this case, they could get damaged, because of excessive torque. The Linear Actuators also have an internal clutch mechanism (that also clicks) to avoid high torque situations, but in this case the limits are reached before at the external gears.

Reyven: Is that clicking the actuators clutch slipping?

legomaniac150: is that a safety feature or are you damaging the gears when it clicks?

Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
