AVL Throttle Actuator COMPACT

The AVL Throttle Actuator Compact is a linear rotary screw (LRS) type throttle actuator used for controlling the mechanical throttle on an engine. The linear rotary screw type technology gives the Throttle Actuator excellent speed, force, and accuracy capabilities. The integrated controller allows for improved stability and accommodates a large input voltage range. The integrated mechanical flex-ball connection to the throttle and a pre-defined electrical connection to the automation system make it an excellent solution for engine control. The hardware component of the AVL Throttle Actuator Compact consists of the actuator with a push-pull cable and an integrated controller. All of the required power components and motion processors are contained in the actuator housing.
