Various equipment used in control systems, such as actuators, microcontrollers, servosystems and switchgear.


  • Actuators - a subdivision of transducers, which transform an input signal into motion
  • Microcontrollers - a self-contained, small computer on a single integrated circuit, typically embedded in other machinery
  • Regulators - a device that maintains a range of values in a system
  • Servosystems - an automated system that detects negative feedback to correct system performance
  • Switchgear - electrical circuit breakers or disconnects used to isolate electrical equipment
  • Telecontrol equipment - devices that allow for the monitoring and manipulation of systems over a distance without wires
