Power Drive Units

A Power Drive Unit converts electrical or hydraulic power into mechanical motion (often rotary) and drives a mechanical actuation system.

Moog’s heritage in power drive units covers electrical and hydraulic inputs in torque and speed summed configurations.  Hybrid hydraulic/electric-powered drives have been used in some applications.  Power drive hardware includes hydraulic motors and control modules, electric motors, reduction gearing, stop modules, torque limiters, and braking mechanisms.
