looking for the unicorn of linear actuators …

Throw greater than 18″ ( 45cm ). Faster than 2″/sec (5cm/sec). And with both limit switches and a bidirectional rotary encoder.

Firgelli has almost the perfect one. But the encoder is not directional. I could retrofit the Firgelli model but I need 60 of them and multiplicity gets expensive.

Does anyone know of a linear encoder that matches these specs?

[ and force TBD ]
