With this Channel Slider kit from Actobotics you will be able to put your videos in motion. This slider has an overall length of 24” with a usable 19” of slide travel. It fits nicely in a carry-on bag and is very portable for those who wish to take it along to capture their active lifestyles (overall weight of only 1.1 lbs without motor). The motor mount is compatible with most 3-12V standard gearmotor and 6-12V precision gearmotors. The vast motor options allow you to tailor the slider to fit your shooting style whether it’s for real-time shots or super slow time-lapse shots. The slider kit is constructed entirely of Actobotics components which allow you to expand it incredibly easily.

Actobotics is a robotics building system based around extruded aluminum channels, gears, precision shafts, and ball bearings. Thanks to the two standardized hole patterns, nearly all Actobotics components can be intuitively connected together. The wide range of components makes building complex electromechanical prototypes or finished projects a reality.



Slider speed calculation: The following formula can be used to help select the correct speed of gearmotor.

6.3 / [(number of seconds for full travel at max speed/60]
For example, if you wish to build a slider that will move 19” in 30 seconds:
6.3 / [30/60] = 12.7 RPM motor required
