When it comes to selecting an electromechanical actuator (EMA), there are a number of parameters you need to take into consideration. But before you get to those, you need to know the following answers to understand the basic requirements of your system:
- Is this system a new build or a replacement of a hydraulic or pneumatic actuator?
- If new, what are the design parameters?
- If a replacement, were there performance requirements that the existing system or equipment could not meet?
Defining the design parameters and performance requirements can sometimes seem daunting. To help, we created an infographic to walk you through the parameters that will steer you toward the appropriate actuator solution for your specific needs.
