Auma, manufacturer and global supplier of modular electric actuators, has announced that orders can be placed for its new part-turn actuator.
Designed for butterfly and ball valve automation, the SQ .2 replaces the SG .1 range. A new actuator size more than doubles the torque range offered by the company's predecessor product: this is a significant expansion now covering 50 Nm to 2400 Nm.
Advanced features and benefits include adoption over a wider torque range without the need for a gearbox – this provides a more compact and cost effective actuation solution. Diagnostics and asset management enhancements include additional temperature and vibration sensors.
For enhanced positioning accuracy, and an increased number of permissible starts per hour, an SQR version for modulating duty replaces the SGR. Commissioning and operation of SQ actuators are identical to the SA .2 multi-turn range. Both ranges are available with simple AM or micro-controller operated AC integral controls – as a result, controls are interchangeable and, at plants where both product series are installed, on-site device management is simplified.
