    Hello All,
    Im using the C-Build Linear Actuator. A video of the setup can be found here.

    The linear actuator is being powered by a small DC motor. 12 volts. I know a stepper motor would work better here however I need to control the motor with a small PLC. Using a relay - the PLC controls the movement of the motor just fine however I would like some torque control of the motor. I'm hoping there is a motor controller that could be turned on with a digital signal from the PLC and has some POT or something that can control the current and torque of the motor.
    Any help is appreciated.....
    Tim
