Product Announcement from Belimo Americas
Belimo electronic fail-safe actuators were developed for the HVAC market using several patented technologies to provide reliable operation and new selectable fail-safe positioning. Unique electronics, software and super capacitor technology not only enables user selection of fail position (0-100%), but also delays unnecessary actuator movements during short brown out conditions - avoiding changes in the HVAC and building automation system.
Reliable and versatile
Environmental and climate conditions often result in short power interruptions which can cause damper and valve actuators to begin fail-safe operation and temporarily destabilize the room or building temperature control. This causes unnecessary actuator movements and additional energy usage. The new electronic fail-safe actuator series with the control power-off function and durable, maintenance-free capacitors provide solutions to these climate conditions.
Like all Belimo actuators - the electronic fail-safe actuators are easy to install, commission, inspect and connect to higher level systems and have a complete line of accessories available. The electronic fail-safe actuators are available in the following models:
- High Torque: GK Series - 360 in-lbs [40 Nm], approximately 90 sq. ft.
- High Torque: Tandem Mounted*: GK Series - 720 in-lbs [80 Nm], approximately 180 sq. ft
- Linear Motion: AHKX Series - 101 in-lbs [450 N force]
*Tandem mounted GKs will be available late Q4 of 2010.
