COMPONENT DESCRIPTION   INSTALLATION

AV Series Hatch Lifters

• no 1 AV actuator for single installation (Fig.1)
• no 2 AV actuators for dual installation (Fig.2)
• External diameter: 1.9” (48 mm)
• Length at closed position: 14.8” (377 mm)+ stroke
• Maximum oscillation range: 125°


ULYSSES Series actuators
• no 1 Ulysses actuator (Fig.1)
no dual installation
• External diameter: 1.3” (34 mm)
• Length at closed position: 12.1” (308 mm)+ stroke
• Maximum oscillation range: 180°


Power supply cable:
AV and ULYSSES actuators are supplied
with 5 ft (1,5 m) of electrical cable
• Warning: in case of longer cable length required, do not substitute the existing harness, but make a junction following the instructions supplied with the product.


Two way push-button with central off position (optional)


Fuse (not supplied)

 

Battery (not supplied)

  

• The following equation will help you to calculate the maximum strength (Fmax) required from the hatch lifter to open your hatch, knowing the dimensions and weight of the hatch and the position of the mounting brackets.


Fmax= P/2 x L/b x X/a x K*


P = weight of the hatch in Newton
c, a, b = dimensions in metres indicated in Fig. 3 and Fig. 4
L = hatch lifter length when in closed position


Maximum load (Fmax):

AV Series actuators:
1200 N (120 kg - 265 lbs) single installation, pushing only
2400 N (240 kg - 530 lbs) dual installation pushing only


Note: when the load exceeds 2400 N (240 kg - 530 lbs), it is possible to install more then two AV actuators


ULYSSES actuators:
650 N (65 kg - 144 lbs) single installation only, both pull and push
