Abstract:

An electro-hydraulic EH actuator for converting electrical inputs into hydraulic output signals is described. The actuator features a pressure balanced design which permits operation at high absolute pressures without performance degradation. Internal portions of the EH actuator are filled with a non-conducting fluid, while a flexible diaphragm provides a movable interface between the fluid and the environment in order to equalize the internal and external pressures on the actuator.
