Hayward HRS Series quarter-turn electric actuators feature a powder-coated aluminum alloy housing, ISO 5211-compliant mounting with a double-square drive socket, on/off or proportional control, integrated local control stations and visual position indicators.
The Siko AG26 actuator includes Ethernet/IP, Profinet and EtherCAT and POWERLINK industrial Fieldbus interfaces; a brushless EC motor; power and control electronics; a position controller; and M12 connection technology.
While the trend for large manufacturers is to automate a new plant in its entirety, small and medium-sized food and beverage processors rarely have the funds to automate their plants, turning them into lights-out facilities. Even some tier-one processors may find areas in certain operations where it may not make sense to over-automate.
Providing an advanced positioning capability, the Duff-Norton CMLA linear actuator features IP66 protection for interior and exterior applications, a stainless steel translating tube for corrosion resistance, an anti-rotational outer tube and lightweight cast aluminum housing.
The JVL HDCT-100 hollow core rotary actuator has a nominal output torque of 6.8 Nm (963 oz.-in.), a maximum speed of 167 or 200 rpm (motor dependent) and axial load of 150 N (33.7 lb.), while the HDCT-130 model has a 12 Nm (1,699 oz.-in.) nominal output torque, a 167 or 200 rpm (motor dependent) maximum speed and a 200 N (45-lb.) axial load.
