Types of Actuators Used At Home

Actuator used in homes

Linear actuators have proved to be the next best invention in human life, making it simple and taking up some basic roles. However, some of the latest home automation’s have proved to be more advantageous in man’s daily life. The combination of sensor and actuators has various applications in home appliances currently not even mentioning industrial as well as office uses.

High quality DC actuators at progressiveautomations.com can be classified according to their uses and source of power. In many homes, manual, electric and pneumatic actuators are used. Light Control Application using prototype system has been one of the major home applications of the actuator. This regulates light levels specified by the individual sensor nodes. Resident of a house can set the right lighting in the house and the actuator takes the responsibility henceforth. The actuator, are used in hydraulic cylinder, electrical pump motor, hydraulic pumps, check valve, relay cabinet and unloading valve.
