Abstract : This invention is concerned with a cylindrical linear actuator suitable for installation in a confined area and capable of infinite stroke adjustment over its scheduled travel and lockable at any position of its designated stroke includes overlapping and combining rod and stroke adjustments to minimize actuator legnth. Electrical feedback is precalibrated to give a known signal proportional to the actuator stroke and to the position of the load clevis thereby always giving the correct position of the load.
