ProAct(TM) I & II Electromagnetic Actuators
L-Series Speed Controller

The Woodward LCS Integrated Engine Control System is the first engine speed control to deliver so much in a package this compact, and it can also deliver a big savings in production and field support. Since the LCS Control System is microprocessor-based, it can easily be programmed to match the operating parameters of every engine you produce. All it takes is a PC and a simple, plug-in download on your production line. With many built-in functions, this microprocessor-based speed control allows a high-volume OEM or packager to stock one part number, but implement a wide variety of engine control strategies by configuring the four auxiliary inputs at their factory.

ProAct(TM) I & II Electromagnetic Actuators
L-Series Position Controller

The L-Series Position Controller provides a building block approach to total engine management. The microprocessor-based bi-directional actuator design easily attaches to fuel pumps, mixers, or throttle bodies. The L-Series Position Controller accepts a position command and drives the 0-60 degree output shaft to the commanded position based on an internal shaft position sensor. The high-efficiency torque motor delivers 0.34 N·m (0.25 lb-ft) nominally over 60 degree travel range to operate fuel or air control devices.

ProAct(TM) I & II Electromagnetic Actuators
ProAct(TM) Digital Plus Actuators

The ProActTM Digital Plus actuator is intended to be mounted on-engine to control varying functions including (but not limited to): fuel rack positioning, timing control, throttle valve, and wastegate positioning. The actuator is effectively a positioner with an integral driver, which will accept a position command signal from another device in the system such as a speed control. The ProAct Digital Plus actuator includes an integral digital driver capable of controlling the actuator, communicating with the outside control system, and containing on-board software and intelligence to realize monitoring and customizing functions.

ProAct(TM) I & II Electromagnetic Actuators
ProAct(TM) ISC Integrated Speed Control

The ProAct™ Integrated Speed Control (ISC) is an electric actuator with an integrated electronic driver capable of diesel or gaseous engine speed control or positioning tasks. The ProAct ISC can be mounted on-engine to control a diesel fuel rack or gaseous throttle via linkage or integrated throttle body. The ProAct ISC accepts a speed input from an MPU and can accept a position command signal from another device in the system such as an engine control module.Configured as a speed control, the ProAct ISC offers speed control with software-selectable speed set points, dynamics, fuel limiting, and start/stop behavior.Configured as a positioner, the ProAct ISC offers position control with software selectable CW/CCW operation and field calibration

UG-Actuator

The UG-ACTUATOR offers the advantages of electronic control and load sharing systems while using the convenient, existing UG-8 type drives and linkages. The actuator provides the muscle for Woodward analog controls such as the 2301, as well as Woodward digital controls such as the 500-series and 700-series. The UG-ACTUATOR can be used with diesel, gasoline, or natural gas engines, and with steam and industrial gas turbines. The UG-ACTUATOR has a self-contained oil sump, so a separate oil supply is not required.

TM-55P Proportional Actuator

The TM-55P Actuator is an electrohydraulic, proportional actuator for controlling diesel and gas engines or steam and industrial gas turbines. It is designed for use with Woodward analog and digital controls. The TM-55P will interface (with an adapter) directly to Woodward liquid and gas fuel valves. It is particularly well suited for use in control systems requiring a rotary mechanical output that is proportional to electrical input.

TM-55 Integrating Actuator

The TM-55 is an integrating type actuator used for controlling diesel and gas engines or steam and industrial applications of gas turbines, and is designed for use with an adapter directly to Woodward liquid and gas fuel valves. The TM-55 has an electrical position sensor which provides a feedback signal to Woodward electronic controls. This combination allows closed loop control of the actuator output-shaft position.

Dyna Actuators
Dyna 2000 & 2500 Linear Actuators

The Dyna 2000 and Dyna 2500 linear actuators provide accurate precise positioning with a minimal number of moving parts. This simple design of a proportional electric solenoid has a sliding armature whose magnetic force is proportional to the input coil current. These actuators are easy to install by mounting near the fuel system and direct connecting to the fuel control rod or lever. In most installations, the normal rotary-to-rotary connection is eliminated, resulting in a more trouble-free and accurate control system. The actuator is suitable for installation on diesel, gasoline, or natural gas engines with fuel system force requirements of less than 13 pounds (58 N) of force.

Dyna Actuators
Dyna 7000 Rotary Actuator

The Dyna 7000 Rotary Actuator provides a new dimension in size and versatility for spark-ignited and diesel engines. This proven rotary design has been field tested over the last ten years. This simple design of a proportional electric solenoid has a rotating armature whose angular position is proportional to input coil current. The 70 degrees of rotation and small size enhance the overall mounting and interface with a variety of fuel systems. The actuator is suitable for installation on gasoline, natural gas, and diesel engines. On carbureted and throttle body applications, a direct connection between actuator shaft and butterfly shaft is possible, thus eliminating external linkage.
