Actuator

In control technology, where it is known as the controlling element, this is the counterpart to the Sensor. It converts electrical current (signals) into mechanical movement. It is used on closed-loop circuits as the final controlling element (e.g. solenoid valve, motor or circuit breaker) for intervention in process control.
