“A rotary actuator is simply an actuator that has been designed to produce a rotary motion or torque. They are capable of transforming electric energy, hydraulic, or pneumatic energy into mechanical rotation. Most people have defined rotary actuators as the hydraulic or pneumatic equivalent of electric motors. For a rotational or twisting effort (torque), a rotary actuator happens to be more compact than any equivalent motor, can be used for operations in an explosive environment (or an environment that is prone to explosion), and cannot get damaged by an indefinite stall. When it comes to applications and maintenance requirements, a rotary actuator could be said to be similar to DC drive that is thyristor controlled. A rotary actuator is defined in terms of the number of torques it produces as well as its overall running speed.”
