Actuator

In control technology, where it is known as the controlling element, this is the counterpart to the Sensor . It converts electrical current (signals) into mechanical movement. It is used on closed-loop circuits as the final controlling element (e.g. solenoid valve, motor or circuit breaker) for intervention in process control.
