    Hi everyone, I am a complete novice when it comes to electronics (and forums ). Can anyone help me out. I have 3 linear actuators, with clutch and pots. Is it possible to control all three actuators simultaneously by remote control? But also being able to stop the actuators at three or four preset positions. Any advice would be great. Thank, Mark.

    You could set up an RC controller if needed, they are relatively cheap.
    Linear actuators usually have a fwd/rev limit built in on the extreme limits, if any intermediate position is needed, you would need to set up your own and position detection, possibly use a RC controller switch channel to by pass a L.S. switch if needed to proceed to a next position.
