Pyrotechnic Actuators are designed to produce a high mechanical work output through rapid movement of a piston. They are electrically actuated and will operate within milliseconds of receiving the appropriate impulse; a rate which is almost impossible to achieve with a mechanical source of energy. Their compact size, high reliability and good environmental resistance make Pyrotechnic Actuators ideal for use in various applications.
Typical applications for pyrotechnic actuators are:
Vehicle Fire suppression systems
Windows Smoke AOV
Fire Fighting suppression systems
Safe wearable vest
