Wiring The Actuator (wires not included with
The actuator line is comprised of five stranded copper wires.
Two 12 or 14 gauge stranded wires are used to
power the motor and
Two color-coded 18 or 22 gauge shielded wires
connect to the sensor.
These actuator wires should be connected to the
appropriate terminals on the back of the receiver (or a separate
actuator power supply).
Like the servo motor wires, the Two shielded motor sensor wires
provide pulse, and ground. The vast majority of actuator motors do
not require power to be hooked to the sensor. Look inside the
actuator housing. If there are only two wires connected to the
sensor, then hook up pulse and ground to their respective terminals.
IF there are three wires connected to the sensor, and pulse and
ground interchangeably to the other two sensor wires, then use 3
The two large stranded wires connect to the large wire terminals at
the actuator motor and to the motor wire "M1" and "M2" terminals on
the back of the receiver or
actuator controller. Now try to move the dish to the east or
west; if the dish moves in the direction opposite to the on
intended, reverse the wires connected to the motor wire "M1" and
