MAX STRONG ARM

HEAVY DUTY LINEAR ACTUATOR FOR RESIDENTIAL/ COMMERCIAL USE

DSP motion control for smooth operation, plus, separate closing speeds for dual gate installations.

The Max Strong Arm is a long throw linear actuator that will move up to 1000 lbs gates. The smooth motion control and separate closing speeds for dual gate installations truly sets this machine apart from it’s competition. The 15 gauge gold zinc, powder coated metal control box with standard loop rack and toroid power supply protects the many user friendly features of the DSP Arm Controller board. A window display for instant diagnostics, opening and closing emergency reversal controls, and easy logical control of gate motion and safety parameters are just a few aspects of many that makes Maximum Controls’ residential/commercial linear actuator a gate operator you should consider.
