Actuator controls and rate controls are ideal in commercial aviation applications such as:
Drop-down stowage bins. ITT Enidine Inc. rate controls offer a smooth, controlled articulating bin opening motion, whether the bin is empty or full. Flight attendant seats. Flight attendant seats typically must have a seat pan that folds up automatically to ensure clearance at points of aircraft egress. ITT Enidine Inc. rate controls provide a smooth return of the seat pan to its upright position.
Engine cowlings. During engine maintenance, the cowlings are lifted up and secured by hold-open rods. When the rods are released, Enidine rate controls slow the descent of the heavy cowlings to ensure maximum safety for maintenance personnel.
Airstair dampers. On bizjet airstair units where lift assistance is not required, Enidine rate controls provide consistent, long-life performance in controlling the deployment speed of the airstair Enidine offers a wide range of rate controls that provide motion control in tension, compression, or both directions
