that info can be found on page 13 (the 4th page in the PDF) here. the actuator draws 25A and I assume much more because the actuator is rated @ 3000lbs but chart max's out at 600lbs/25A.Can you explain the overall goal of what you are trying to do?
You are talking about up/down/moving, but have one actuator, which we don't know the power rating for. Did it come with a sheet stating how many amps at 12V or 24V it needs?
Ok I made a mistake, they are rated for 10A, not .1A. This still doesn't cut it, but might be able to work. do this; go back to your original page (http://na.suzohapp.com/joysticks/ultimate_joy.htm) and click on "Mounting & Exploded Views" - you see the microswitch P/N is 95-0733-01. then go here and see it is rated for 10A. Now go here and see that your actuator hits 10A when lifting either 85lbs (K2VLG05) or 120lbs (K2VLG10) or 275lbs (K2VLG20). So, theoretically you could run the power through the joystick as long as you don't try to lift anybody with the bucket and as long as you don't stick the bucket in the ground and then try to lift it. It is always recommended to use a switch that is rated well above the max current it is possible to draw.http://www.lizardlick.com/assets/images/happ/joysticks/happ_compstick_black.jpg
A fellow internet friend that told me about these joysticks has been using it for close to 3 years with no relays or issues don't know why. does it matter I going to run this on a 12v system. And the risk of being deleated this is for a power lift on a garden tractor snowblower.
oh, wait! before you do that, I should mention one crucial thing I forgot to draw in the drawing - a fuse. you need a 10A fuse in line with the red wire coming out of the battery + terminal (see changed drawing - attached). If you don't put the fuse there, what's going to happen is, as soon as your motor draws more than 10A (which I'm pretty sure it will), the switch contacts in your joystick will weld together and the actuator will continue moving even after you take your hand off the stick. Once the runaway actuator reaches the end of its stroke, it will start drawing mega amps and your joystick will catch on fire, your wires will melt, you actuator will burn up, and your battery migh explode.Cool thanks for that will give it a try.
