Servo Motor

An ac or dc motor used in servo systems to move a load to a desired position or at a desired speed. The ac motor is usually used to drive light loads at a constant speed, while the dc motor is used to drive heavy loads at varying speeds.

This can be operated by oil or air pressure when required to operate heavy control mechanisms.
