L.C. Smith Company manufactures Probe Actuators and controls for use in remote pressure, temperature, and flow direction measurement in research prototype jet engines, turbines, and compressors. These Actuators have also been used to position instrumentation for measurement of noise, or measurement of similar gas or fluid flow handling devices such as cryogenic pumps, turbochargers, and noise reduction studies in turbine engines.

The Probe Actuators are supplied with either D.C. motors or stepping motors for drive and with either precision potentiometers or encoders for position feedback. Remote operation and control is provided by electrical extension cables for remote operation up to several hundreds of feet.

Controls to drive the Probe Actuators and read out angular, linear position, and circumferential position are available with computer port communications to interface the L.C. Smith positioning Actuators with test data computers.
