Automate Your Boat with 12V Actuators

Posted on February 08, 2016 by Anna
When people think of 12V linear actuators and their applications, they tend to think of examples in dry environments on land, away from water and other potentially harmful substances. While it's true that most applications are indeed like that, there is also a substantial need for automation in aquatic environments, specifically out on the ocean in boats and other sea-based vehicles. Boats have many opportunities for automation with 12V actuators, which we will be going over in today's post. Recreational  One of the main features of automation is all about automating procedures and making the users' life more comfortable. Many people enjoy going out on the ocean in their boats in order to relax and get away from everyday life. With a motorized boat, you can make it feel like a vacation every time you get on board. Automating your boat cabin is the ideal option for something like this. You could automate your bed to be hidden and then extend from a cabinet or even from your floor with the press of a button. Do the same with television to bring your boat cabin into the future and impress all your friends. When you’re done in the cabin and the mood for relaxing out on the deck, having adjustable seating outside is another excellent opportunity for automating your boat. Doing this could allow you to adjust the seats remotely to get the perfect angle for sunbathing. luxury living room
Functional 12V actuators provide many practical uses for your sea vessel as well, specifically the exterior. One example is adding an automated ladder to your boat that can extend and retract to your liking, making it easier, safer, and faster to get in and out of the ship.
Another example would be to automate your collapsible mast to make it remote-controlled, making the procedure a much smoother experience and providing fast access for maintenance procedures or quick retraction to avoid obstacles overhead. One more example is automating your engine hatch. The engine hatch is an essential part of any boat, protecting it from potentially harmful debris/materials as well as providing easy access if adjustments are needed. However, they are usually quite heavy, some requiring multiple people to lift and open. Installing a 12V linear actuator, like our PA-04 water-resistant model, to raise and lower the hatch remotely will not only make it safer to access but also eliminate the physical strain of opening and closing it manually.motor boat

These are just some examples of ways to automate your boat, yacht, or any other sea-based vehicle. When it comes to automation, almost anything is possible, and we are always discovering and exploring new ways to make our customers' ideas a reality.

How to Install an Industrial Linear Actuator?
The actuator portion of a machine or piece of equipment is the part that is ultimately responsible for controlling the movement itself. The motors in this type of equipment are normally used to apply circular motion in the equipment it is attached to, but the use of a lead screw will limit the motion of […]
