The telescopic actuator with cable and roller transmissions is provided with a gear motor, fixed on a support and which drives through a roller, on which is wound a cable attached at both ends, thus making the movement of the support slide, in which it slides another slide. It has rollers at the ends on which another cable is wound, which has the lower branch fixed to the support by a guided connection in a channel in the second slide and another in the first, and the upper branch of the cable is fixed to the support slide through another guided link, in a channel in the second slide. Thus, when rotating the roller on the reducer, a simultaneous translational movement of the two slides with an increased stroke is obtained, by extending the mechanism.
