Orders placed between Wednesday, June 9th and Friday, June 11th may be delayed due to AndyMark's annual inventory count.
This kit is designed to be used with the 12" DART (am-3072a) or 6" DART (am-3076a) linear actuator. Both bracket lengths are included.
Be sure to position the sensors at a location so that the DART lead screw does not travel as far to bottom out the brass nut at the end of stroke.
It is recommended to run this actuator with hall effect and/or current protection as it is possible to stall or "stick" the lead screws when stalled against a hard stop at both ends of travel. It's recommended to use the the hall effect switches to limit travel of the actuator from the end stops. When using faster ratios it may be possible to overrun the limits slightly and programming methods may require ease into stroke ends. If you are not able to program these functions we recommend using a Talon SRX (am-2854) which has on-board switch monitoring and current protection.
Be sure to assemble the DART so that the magnet on the Back Bearing is located under the location that the hall effect sensor is mounted.
- Mounting: 0.136 diameter (4) in each corner with a 0.50" center to center distance
- Size: 0.75" x 0.75" square
It took awhile to figure out the orientation of the mounting bracket but once we did these sensors work great! They’re a must have if you are using the DART actuator

good delivery time
Delivery time has been excellent. But considering it's build season, it's really been incredible. Almost on par with McMaster, but with much better and more robo-centric parts! Keep it up, Andy!
