Thank you for the assistance. I noticed that Firgelli also offers controllers that can be used with LabVIEW so that's great. Are the included brackets used to attach to the hole at the base of the actuator (in the blue area), or elsewhere? Because I noticed in the 3-D CAD of the actuator on the Firgelli website (http://www.firgelli.com/Uploads/PQ-12_IGES.zip
) there is a small bracket already attached about mid-way up the actuator. Regarding attaching the end of the actuator to the object that needs to be moved, is there a standard pin to be used in the actuator hole or would I need to get that custom?
