Transducer

An actuator is a transducer that accepts energy and produces the kinetic energy of movement (action). The energy supplied to an actuator might be electrical or mechanical (pneumatic, hydraulic, etc.). An electric motor and a hydraulic cylinder are both actuators, converting electrical energy and fluid power into motion for different purposes.
