Slack when changing movement directions

    I have an application that needs very little backlash between extension and retraction. Can you provide me with the measurement of the slack when changing movement directions? I intend to put a rotary encoder on it to count revolutions of the motor to determine position accurately, but if there is motor rotation before the actuator moves, it will not work for this particular application.
