Electric actuator portfolio expands

Jon Lawson

AUMA offers a comprehensive portfolio of compact electric actuators to control and automate valves with nominal diameters from DN 15 up to approximately DN 400 in a broad variety of process applications.

The company’s established SVC globe valve and SGC part-turn actuator series have recently been complemented by the new EQ part-turn actuators and the new SD series consisting of multi-turn, part-turn and linear actuators. Designed for harsh industrial environments, they all feature high-protection enclosures, wide operating temperature ranges and outstanding corrosion protection. Options include positioner, Modbus RTU and PROFIBUS DP interfaces.

High positioning accuracy makes both the SVC/SGC and SD actuator ranges suitable for demanding control tasks. They achieve their impressive performance through variable-speed motors, hard-wearing gears and integral microprocessor-based controls that combine flexible configuration with powerful diagnostics. The SD series is suitable for continuous modulating duty (class D). ATEX-certified versions for use in potentially hazardous areas are also available.

The extended portfolio underpins AUMA’s commitment to innovative actuation solutions for the process industries. By concentrating all activities related to the industrial sector in its new division AUMA Industry & Marine, the company has created a sound basis to more effectively meet these customers’ specific requirements.
