GAC AS9100D Certified
Governor’s America Corp. (GAC) is proud to announce it has received AS9100D certification, becoming a fully qualified supplier for the aerospace industry. The company driven initiative to obtain the certification was no easy accomplishment in regular times, but was complicated by the pandemic.
The Quality & Continuous Improvement Manager led the charge. Having gone through the rigorous process of obtaining certification allows us to further focus on our customers needs for high quality products. Obtaining the AS 9100 certification means that GAC is able to manufacture its own parts, allowing us to improve price and delivery speed. GAC has been manufacturing engine solutions for 35 years, the AS9100 will allow us to grow further.
ALN025 and ALN050 universal linear actuators provide fast acting, highly accurate positioning of a shut-off lever or throttle lever. These push type actuators feature internal return springs and perform both speed control and engine shut-down functions. The field proven, military grade and military approved design is constructed with linear bearings and a minimum number of moving parts. ALN025 and ALN050 actuators are maintenance free and can be applied to a multitude of applications including a direct replacement for Woodward / Barber Colman units used on many OEM installations.
The ALN025-12/24 provides 6.5 Lbs. of linear force and replaces Woodward’s DYNA 2000 part numbers:
The ALN050-12/24 provides 13.0 Lbs. of linear force and replaces Woodward’s DYNA 2500 part numbers:
Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT) has selected the ALN025 actuator and ECC328 speed controller for their 2.9L, 3 cylinder S8000 series engines for emergency and prime power gen-set applications used in both 50 and 60 Hz markets.
The ALN025 actuator is mounted over the pump drive gear housing and is linked to the throttle lever of a Bosch VE pump. The ECC328 electronic governor controls engine speed with precise response to transient engine load changes with closed loop speed control using the 40 to 80 Hz input from the generators AC frequency for isochronous governing. A mag pick-up and related wiring is not required, making this high performance system the most popular alternative for small cost sensitive applications.
|ALN mounting brackets are Zinc plated (per ASTM-B633 Type II) for corrosion resistance and ready to accept the actuator, simplifying installation. |
Light Force Speed Controllers as shown in the Application of the Month include: ECC328, ESD2244, ESD2402, ESD5120, ESD5520, ESD5570, ESD5526, ESD5500-II, and EEG6550
Additional ALN System Components:ALN Series Clevis Kit: KT130Bearing Rod Ends: BR200 (1/4-28), BR300 (M5),BR400 (M6), BR500 (M8), and Threaded Rods: RD102 (1/4-28), RD233 (M6)
|WHAT IS LIGHT FORCE|
Light Force governing provides finer adjustment resolution for smaller actuators. It is designed to work with low current small actuators, like T1 ATB, ALR/ALN, 100/103/104 series and normally closed Cummins EFC actuators. Select Light Force on your GAC speed controller when using small actuators to improve adjustments as they respond very quickly to input changes over a smaller range of operating current, using a fraction of the PID and current output of a normal actuator.
