This is our heavy-duty, 18-inch, 2-inch tube QARL SuperJack Linear Actuator used to move your c band dish so that it can track multiple satellites.
It is powered by a 36V positioner (sold separately)
A conventional installation on most C band dish mounts will allow you to track the satellite arc from SAT40W to SAT139W. However, with our custom actuator plate and the 18-inch stroke length of this actuator, you will be able to track the satellite arc from SAT15W to SAT139W!

Wiring The Actuator (wires not included with actuator):
- The actuator line is comprised of five stranded copper wires.
- Two 12 or 14 gauge stranded wires are used to power the motor and
- Two color-coded 18 or 22 gauge shielded wires connect to the sensor.
- These actuator wires should be connected to the appropriate terminals on the back of the receiver (or a separate actuator power supply).
- Like the servo motor wires, the Two shielded motor sensor wires provide pulse, and ground. The vast majority of actuator motors do not require power to be hooked to the sensor. Look inside the actuator housing. If there are only two wires connected to the sensor, then hook up pulse and ground to their respective terminals. IF there are three wires connected to the sensor, and pulse and ground interchangeably to the other two sensor wires, then use 3 wires.
- The two large stranded wires connect to the large wire terminals at the actuator motor and to the motor wire “M1” and “M2” terminals on the back of the receiver or actuator controller. Now try to move the dish to the east or west; if the dish moves in the direction opposite to the on intended, reverse the wires connected to the motor wire “M1” and “M2” terminals.
