Flexible, low voltage actuators
Featured Product from Rotork plc
Rotork releases AC version of PAX1 linear actuator
The wider PAX range is made up of a variety of linear actuators and motorised regulators. PAX1 units are flexible, low voltage actuators that are ideal for use in remote explosionproof locations. They offer a thrust output of up to 2,890 N (650 lbf), enabling control of most regulators, small valves and pumps. They are capable of controlling pressure ranges of 0-0.5 psig to 0-3,000 psig.
Common applications include pump stroke control, valve control, test equipment and the automation of mechanical spring-loaded pressure regulators. Hazardous area rated to FM, CSA and ATEX, they also have high levels of ingress protection; NEMA 4X, Type 6P, IP66 and IP68 (7 metres for 72 hours), increasing the areas in which they can be used. They have a wide ambient temperature range of -40 to +80 °C (-40 to+176 °F).
