Piston Actuator

These powerful stroking devices are designed to pack a lot of punch!  Piston Actuators can be initiated electrically with a bridge wire device, or with an EBAD FCDCA.  Upon initiation, pressure is created causing a piston to stroke. These devices are designed to provide an impulse for a variety of applications both large and small, such as vehicle stage and fairing separation push off, rupturing diaphragms, releasing locking pins, activating latch releases, or activating batteries.  Full function typically occurs in milliseconds from the input of the firing signal.
