Does anybody sell an inexpensive rack and pinion assembly with integrated motor and stops? If not, is there a motor with end stops that can be easily attached to a dual track rack/pinion? I want to do a motorized art cover for wall mounted tv.

Thanks

I'd look into the motoroized drapery hardware. You can get it for drapery as well as the more common shades.

Thank you for the recommendations. I sent them an email, but I don't think they have rack and pinion style actuator. This is what I am trying to do on a budget. It is basically a roller shade and a rack pinion actuator. I am trying to avoid buying the roller shade and actuator separate and I am looking for a supplier that offers dual rack and pinion actuator with a built in motor.

No luck with them. They don't sell rack/pinion style mechanisms. At this point I'll be happy with a rack and pinion assembly that has the roller guides integrated. This is the only thing that I found, but I want to be able to attach a motorized window roller shade as the drive and it does not appear to be possible with it:
