MCi is working on numerous new area's where actuation can be a benefit. For instance opening and closing charge port doors or even the adjustment of beamer based fire detection sensors. We are also delivering actuators for satellite receiver terminals.
Charge port door
4200 and 4300 series with added features distinguishes MCi in this new market. Clutch, tip to close, position detection and pinch detection optimize the driver's experience using the charge port door. On top the clutch also extends the robustness of the charge port door flap and actuator. Also here the Lead-Follow concept can offer support.
Fire detection and calibration
By using a standardized actuator from the automotive business, MCi was able to provide a quick and cost-effective solution for smoke detection applications that was globally available at large scale. Since more than 10 years MCi has now been growing our actuation business on these smoke detection applications.
Scale and time to market was a key challenge developing our actuators for the satellite user terminal business. Similar to smoke detection applications, we focused on using existing actuator platforms which we had in production for the automotive business, adapting these actuators for the satellite user terminal allowed us to have a fast time to market at high volume.
