My application needs to have a rail like sliding system but also needs few other properties
- Vertical Slider
- Range Lock
- Range Lock should be adjustable
I've sketched the requirements for better understanding.
Locked state 1
Slider should not go below minimum lock position
Locked state 2
Slider should not go above maximum lock position
Maximum and minimum lock positions should be adjustable
Specifics about use case
- The force will be from the top and not more than 25 kgs
- The slide up and down motion will be used 20 times a day
- The slide range adjustment will be used 5 times a day
- Maximum height lock need not support weight from above, although additional support is a plus
- Minimum height in normal state is 28 inches
- Maximum height in lifted state should be upto 46 inches i.e 18 inches taller
I'm not familiar with different types of slides or hardware for the job.
What are the types of hardware required to accomplish the task efficiently.
