Product Information


Capsonic designs, tests and manufactures many types of electromechanical actuators for use in vehicle/aircraft safety systems, air/fluid control and vehicle engine control. Some of our actuator products include self-contained control, while others are designed to be externally controlled, but provide control feedback.

Actuator Technologies:

  • Latching and Locking
  • Multi-State
  • Proportional
  • Motion Control with positional feedback
  • Multi-functional Activations
  • Linear and Rotational and mixed
