An actuator is a component that is responsible for controlling and moving a mechanism, for example, by opening a valve. In simple terms, it is a ‘mover’. It requires a control signal and an energy source.
Benefits of AC Actuator
The AC Actuator moves air distribution doors to two or more positions to direct airflow for heating and A/c vents. The AC Actuator is located under the dashboard attached to the air distribution doors in the HVAC box.
The doors can control warm air/cold air blending, recirculated/ fresh air control, or dual-zone spitting.
Types of AC Actuator
There are three types of AC Actuators, such as – Pneumatic Linear Actuators, Hydraulic Linear Actuators, and Electric Linear Actuators.
Pneumatic Linear Actuator enables considerable forces to be produced from relatively small pressure changes, Hydraulic Linear Actuators consists of a cylinder or fluid motor that uses hydraulic power to facilitate mechanical operation, and Electric Linear Actuator may provide the actuation force/torque in several ways.
