Embraer 170-190 Pitch and Roll
Woodward’s most capable autopilot servo consists of a family of fail-passive actuators able to drive any cockpit flight control input during autopilot operation. The launch platform for this system was the Embraer 170-190, where the Pitch and Roll autopilot functions are performed.
 
These smart brushless DC actuators are commanded by a CAN BUS Digital Interface. An internally packaged Dual-Microprocessor Electronics Module controls the motor. Our combination of components provides the fail-passive characteristics necessary for CAT3B operation. This Woodward product has received TSO approval. 
 
Woodward excels at working collaboratively with customers from the earliest stages of design to produce high-performance, cost-effective systems. We back our excellent products with extensive support, to a large worldwide customer base.
