Description

The next generation of IQ multi-turn and IQT part-turn robust intelligent electric actuators is designed to delivers top performances coupled with unrivaled reliability for all type and size of valves. It offers everything you’d expect from 60 years of innovation; simple wireless commissioning, reliable performances, robustness, time-proven design, precise and accurate control, top of the line diagnostic and detailed dataloggin capabilities, waterthight and hazardous area enclosures, manual override in case of emergencies, and more.

Actuator position accuracy and precision mainly come from the absolute encoder and its battery. Not all absolute encoders are the same, IQ3 encoder can output 8000 turns where typical encoders output 2000 turns.

The battery assure encoder and local display operation in the event of power failure. This feature allows the actuator to know its exact position if driven manually. When power gets back up, there is no “offset” in the position sensor and operation can resume smoothly. Even more, the battery provides power to the remote (relay) indication allowing the control system to know if valve is fully open or fully closed. The battery also allow for actuator setup when no power is availaible on site to ensure versatile commissioning. The standard 9V battery is available worldwide with a high or low temperature type available from Rotork. Battery status is available at all time either localy or remotly, based on 20 years of typical applications experience, the expected battery life is up to 5 years. As all settings are stored in non-volatile memory and position sensed by the Rotork absolute encoder backed-up by the 9V battery, security and reliability of configuration and position is always assured.

The IQ range features unique double sealed enclosure ensure the actuator is sealed to IP66/68 and NEMA 4/6 certifications. The explosion proof Exde enclosures allow the actuator to be used in Class 1, Div 1, B, C, D and Class 2, Div 1, E, F, G areas on all temperature range options. The actuator can have oprional SIL2 and SIL3 ratings if required.

All Rotork IQ range actuators are set up non-intrusive infrared and bluetooth commissioning. Industry leading predictive maintenance and datalogging capabilities with the adequate security to back it up.

They are available in a wide variety of communication protocols including;  Pakscan™ system offers advanced actuator network control similar to network control from Profibus®, Foundation Fieldbus®, Modbus®, DeviceNet® and HART®.
