The EG-3P/6P/10P (proportional) actuators are designed for use on diesel, gas, and gasoline engines, or turbines. They are particularly well suited for use in control systems requiring a proportional mechanical output or a proportional electrical input.


The EG-3P/6P/10P actuators convert an electrical signal to a proportional rotary output shaft position to control the flow of fuel or energy medium to a prime mover. These actuators are suitable for controlling diesel and gas engines or steam and industrial-commercial gas turbines driving alternators, dc generators, pumps, compressors, papermaking machines, or locomotives. A Woodward hydraulic amplifier can provide larger work capacities.

The actuator provides the “muscle” for a Woodward 2301A, 723, 723PLUS, or similar integrating electric control system. The actuator will provide a mechanical output position in proportion to a dc control signal increasing from a nominal minimum to a maximum value.
