Hi,

I have bought a Manhattan 18 inch linear actuator second hand with no manual and I am looking to test it out with a short piece of 4 core cable to my Vbox, however I'm not sure of the wiring.

Can anyone help using the picture below as to which terminals on the left hand side should go be wired to the Motor Red/Black and Sensor Red/Black on the back of the Primesat PR1200?

I've looked online for a manual but haven't managed to find one and there is nothing on the back of the cap

Thanks

Swap the motor wires around if the actuator moves in the wrong direction.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

The motor drive are the two connections nearest the cable input.

Motor is red grey, (sensor purple/black) unless I've gone colourblind.

That is a very small actuator.

Thanks guys. Once the baby goes to bed later I'll give it a go.
