Almost every modern truck or bus is equipped with a turbocharger these days and this means some kind of exhaust gas management is necessary. The electronic turbo actuator plays a key role in both performance optimisation and exhaust gas reduction. It manages the exhaust gas flow within the turbo compressor with high precision. But, in order to fulfil its task, the electronic turbo actuator is placed on a rather hazardous position.
The electronic turbo actuator operates in probably the most hostile environment an electronic component can be: right next to the turbo compressor. The extreme temperatures and vibrations from the turbo compressor not only affect the electronics within the turbo actuator, but the mechanics also suffer in these harsh circumstances.
Alec GmbH has thoroughly analysed the consequences of this situation. The entire remanufacturing process of the electronic turbo actuator is therefore focused on improving the reliability and coping with heat and vibration. Nowadays customers from over 20 different countries make use of this innovative product.
