Control elements, actuators, and displays
The reverse operation of computer data gathering is information output, particularly data display and control commands. We look in this section at the interface aspects of these — the transduction of the computer words to signals appropriate for operating valves, moving dials, running motors, etc. In this context, a control element is a device such as a valve, an actuator is a motor or solenoid that opens and closes the valve, and a display is an indicator on the operator’s console.
