Frequently Asked Questions

These actuators are designed to provide a rotary, quarter-turn movement for on/off or modulating duty in industrial applications.

The classic symmetric yoke generates peak torque at both ends of the stroke, ensuring a well-balanced and reliable performance.

The alternative design involves canted torque arms, delivering peak torque at only one end of the stroke to optimise actuator size, weight, and cost.
