Notes:

This is an electro-hydraulic actuator. The actuator's linear output is via its threaded shaft and its opposite end is anchored by a (tapered) pin.

The actuator's 770mm & 180mm armoured cables are included in its weight but excluded from its size.

The square bracketed inscription terms are blacked out, though the engraving is still clear and indicates the year of manufacture.

Although manufactured by Hobson, this actuator uses an Elliott solenoid valve and torque motor.
