Note 1 to entry: Examples of actuating drives are electric, hydraulic or pneumatic actuating drives, diaphragm systems or piston actuators.
Note 2 to entry: No actuating drive is required for a final controlling element if the manipulated variable at the controller output is capable of directly influencing the mass flow or energy flow, i.e. without any mechanical intermediate variable quantity.
Note 3 to entry: This entry was numbered 351-32-24 in IEC 60050-351:2006.
