This 12 V light-duty (LD) linear actuator with a 10:1 gear reduction can lift loads up to 25 kgf [55 lbs or 250 N] and can withstand static loads up to 250 kgf [550 lbs or 2500 N]. It has a maximum speed of 28 mm/s [1.1″/s] at no load and 23 mm/s [0.9″/s] at the maximum load. Limit switches at each end make the actuator easy to control over its full range of motion. The shaft holds its position when unpowered. This version has a 6-inch stroke (5.9″ usable) and a feedback potentiometer that lets you determine where the actuator is in its stroke.

This represents the maximum in-rush current when starting a stationary actuator. These actuators are NOT intended to be stalled, and they will not stall as long as maximum load ratings are respected.
This is a dynamic load rating. The actuator is rated to withstand 500 lbs when not moving.
Or one minute of continuous operation in four minutes.
Total dust protection, water resistant.
