Exlar’s GSX60 actuator eliminated the multiple single-point failure vulnerability by replacing the complex hydraulic system with the simple, compact solution shown in the photo at the right. The complete solution includes a fiberglass enclosure, a heavy duty precision trunnion bearing mount system, shock-absorbing minimum travels stops, and a thermoelectrically-cooled servo drive all designed and supplied by LCC. These components ensured the system would require minimal maintenance and trouble-shooting and that the actuator would survive in the desert conditions.
