Motors for Control Actuation Systems


Control Actuation Systems

Aerospace Control Actuation Systems (CAS) demand extremely agile and power-dense electro-mechanical systems to reliably power and control an aircraft. These systems, powered by micro motors, must withstand wide temperature ranges, high shock, and intense vibration — just a few of the extreme environmental conditions that can affect their operational performance.

Portescap's extensive capabilities and motion control expertise enable us to deliver exceptional solutions tailored for superior responsiveness, reliability, and precision. Our brush DC and brushless DC motors offer optimal torque and efficiency in compact, lightweight designs, ensuring consistent performance even in the most challenging environments. Gearheads and encoders are also available to meet the demanding torque and feedback needs of this application.


  • Low EMI/EMC
  • Operating temperature range of -65°F to 190°F
  • Exceptional dynamic performance (torque over speed range)
  • Compact, lightweight, power-dense
  • Designed to operate in critical environments (shock, vibration)

Customization Options

  • Electrical magnetic coil customization to meet device's exact torque & speed
  • Custom output shaft & interface features for modular designs
  • Support design, integration and validation
