An actuator is a motor that transforms energy into torque and uses that torque to move or regulate a mechanism or system into which it has been integrated. Both causing and stopping motion are possible with it.
Typically, an actuator is powered by electricity or pressure (such as hydraulic or pneumatic). The control system may be manually or automatically operated, powered by software, or mechanically or electronically.
When voltage is delivered to the stator assembly, also known as the primary winding, current is forced to flow to the rotor assembly, also known as the secondary winding. These two interact to produce a magnetic field that causes motion.
There are two different kinds of motors: DC motors, which have variable speeds, and AC motors, which typically operate at a steady pace.
The South Africa EV actuators market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2027.
In order to deliver PS Automation’s smart actuator line to South Africa in response to the rising need for low-voltage failsafe electric actuators, DEMCA Actuation Solutions, a provider of actuators, teamed up with that company.
Although DEMCA Actuation Solutions does offer failsafe actuators, their previous torque output restrictions prevented them from being freely programmable. The smart actuators from PS Automation have a maximum torque output of 2 800 Nm.
Customers can choose whether the smart actuator will close or open in the case of a failure, as well as the speed at which it will do so, thanks to its freely programmable features. Customers can therefore modify the actuator to meet their unique needs.
