Actuators & Servoactuators
Multi-purpose Actuators and Servoactuators
Multi-purpose actuators and servoactuators can be used for a variety of high-performance applications and are standard building blocks used in a variety of systems.
Moog designs, develops, qualifies and manufactures rotary and linear actuators and servoactuators for demanding industrial applications, military aircraft, target drones and unmanned air, land and sea vehicles.
Moog's rotary actuators and servoactuators utilize brush type DC motors using both Alnico and rare earth magnets. These units have been designed with a separate or imbedded analog or digital amplifier, spur gearing and potentiometers as feedback devices. Typical applications include UAV, RPV, target drones and utility aircraft applications.
Linear Actuators - Fractional Horsepower
Linear actuators translate rotary motion into linear motion. Typically, they have similar features and applications as rotary units.
Continuous Rotation Actuators
Continuous rotation electromechanical actuators offer 360 degrees or greater rotation for many critical applications. These actuators are suitable for radar pedestals, electro-optical targeting or other high resolution positioning needs. Products are available that offer very low backlash and / or very high position feedback and control.
