The Smart Actuator 4 (SA4) is a single function mechanical actuator, which can receive different types of electrical / electronic commands and control a mechanical device. Smart Actuators make it possible to integrate a system’s onboard electronics. Automating manual control and feedback can greatly increase performance, improve safety, and lower costs. Electronic-mechaical smart actuation extremely simplifies the mechanical task by reducing the number of components needed. Smart Actuation also makes position, speed, and status feedback easy to monitor.
