Actuators for TV
« on: July 29, 2018, 02:38:26 PM »
I's like to add a 42" TV in a bedroom but there is no available wall space. Ceiling can work though, but I don't want a parallel mount.
One option is mounting with actuators that can have it either parallel when not in use, or tilt by approx. 60degrees when needed. Question is just whether these are easily obtainable in SA, and more or less the cost?

What about the motors that are used to move solar PV panels?
Even duct tape can’t fix stupid… but it can muffle the sound

You get them but expensive, think about 10k.

Saw one model that seems OK for not a bad price.. may perhaps just get one. Interesting that it can move with such a small DC PSU.
