"The F-Series Modular Actuator is an electric bi-directional actuator with an integral driver. The F-Series Modular Actuator is designed to be engine-mounted for various position control functions on reciprocating engines used in industrial and on-highway service."
The robust, bi-directional F-Series actuator uses LAT (Limited Angle Torque) motor technology to drive the actuator to position very quickly. Slew rates are on the order of 80 mSec, compared to 160 mSec or more for competing technologies. The actuator can accept a PWM, J1939 CAN, 4-20 mA, or 0-5 Vdc position demand signal.
F-Series is designed to be engine-mounted for various position control functions on reciprocating engines and is ideal for on-highway vehicles and stationary gaseous-fueled generators or pumps. The electric actuator requires no hydraulics, pneumatics, grease or gear train and is therefore highly reliable. And, it’s integral electronics eliminate the need for a separate dedicated driver box.
Position control application examples include:
• Fuel rack positioning
• Throttle valve positioning
• Active waste-gate valve positioning
• Compressor by-pass valve positioning
• Compressor re-circulation valve positioning
• Other engine position control functions
