Red Dot Corp. has introduced a sealed microprocessor-controlled rotary actuator for 12- and 24-volt mobile HVAC applications. Designed for commercial trucks, military vehicles and off-highway equipment used in construction, agriculture and other demanding environments, Red Dot’s actuator is designed for managing air-distribution doors, water valves and other functions where durability and precise, electronically controlled actuation are required.

Its microprocessor control is designed to maintain a constant torque across the range of operating voltage and automatically reduce torque in a stalled condition. The actuator is sealed to IP68 standards (+/-5 psi internal or external pressure) to resist moisture and other contaminants. Also, its dual-voltage capability allows it to be used in 12- or 24-volt applications, providing versatility from a single part number.
