January 28, 2019 - Rotork IQ intelligent electric valve actuators now come with the option of a bespoke plug and socket electrical connection.
The optional modular Rotork plug and socket interface provides a connect / disconnect option for IQ3 multi-turn and IQT3 part-turn actuators, encompassing 3-phase, 1-phase and DC (IQT3 only) electrical variants and including many actuators with explosionproof EXd enclosures conforming to ATEX, IECEx, CSA and CSAus international standards. The plug and socket terminal cover maintains the integrity of the actuator’s double-sealed enclosure and IP68 watertight environmental protection (submersible in 20 metres of water for 10 days).
The Rotork solution provides flexibility to the design of the IQ actuators. These include secure Bluetooth non-intrusive setting and commissioning, an information-rich display, real-time status reporting and configurable datalogging to provide detailed analysis of the valve condition and asset management support.
