Actuators

An actuator is a type of motor for moving or controlling a mechanism or system. It is operated by a source of energy, usually in the form of an electric current, hydraulic fluid pressure or pneumatic pressure, and converts that energy into some kind of motion. An actuator is the mechanism by which an agent acts upon an environment. The agent can be either an artificial intelligence agent or any other autonomous being (human, other animal, etc.).

In engineering, actuators are a subdivision of transducers. They are devices which transform an input signal (mainly an electrical signal) into motion. Electrical motors, pneumatic actuators, hydraulic pistons, relays, comb drives, piezoelectric actuators, thermal bimorphs, digital micromirror devices and electroactive polymers are some examples of such actuators. Motors are mostly used when circular motions are needed, but can also be used for linear applications by transforming circular to linear motion with a bolt and screw transducer. On the other hand, some actuators are intrinsically linear, such as piezoelectric actuators. In virtual instrumentation actuators and sensors are the hardware complements of virtual instruments. Computer programs of virtual instruments use motion into linear motion, or vice versa.

RAPA Valves

Also for RAPA valves for hydraulic devices you came to the right place at ITT Controls. RAPA stands for safety, comfort and reliability. Many manufactures trust RAPA solenoid valves and control blocks.
