Intelligent actuators increased speeds

Rotork January 16, 2024

Rotork is excited to announce that new features have been added to the industry-leading IQ3 Pro range of intelligent actuators.

The new features include increased speeds for the IQT3F Pro electric modulating actuators, independent open/close speeds for part-turn actuators and closed-loop control for the multi-turn and part-turn actuators.

The optional increased speed for the IQT3F Pro electric modulating actuators is available for sizes 50, 100 and 125. Adjustable speed, including a slow mode for accurate positioning and a high-speed option where faster speeds are required, making them suitable for choke valve applications.

With the independent open/close speeds, customers can configure IQ3 Pro part-turn actuators’ speed settings for clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation.

Another feature added is closed-loop control. Closed-loop control takes the on-off/bang-bang control or PID control methodologies that are typically used in a PLC or discrete PID controller and incorporates them into the range. Multi-turn non-modulating IQ3 Pro actuators use a setpoint positioning method known as “bang-bang”, while part-turn IQT3 Pro and IQ3M Pro actuators use the PID closed-loop control method.
