Organization: SAE
Publication Date: 1 March 2012
Status: active
Page Count: 20
scope:

This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) is intended as a guide in the preparation of Procurement Specifications for electrical actuator systems to be sued in aerospace and other applications. Detail requirements, as necessary to completely define a specific actuator, are the responsibility of the procuring agency.

Definitions:

An electrical actuation systems (EAS) is defined as consisting of all electrical, mechanical, optical, or fluidic components necessary to convert a command signal and electrical power from the vehicle into a controlled linear or rotary force while using an electromagnetic prime mover. For purposes of this document, the following definitions of an EAS apply.

ELECTROMECHANICAL ACUATOR: An electromechanically actuator is defined as an EAS that utilizes an electric motor mechanically coupled to the load.

ELECTROHYDRAULIC ACTUATOR: An electro hydraulic actuator is defined as a self-contained EAS that utilizes an electric motor driving a hydraulic pump to operate a hydraulic actuation system.
