VICI Valco’s new Universal Valve Actuator permits the use of a single motor and control software to operate virtually any Valco or Cheminert rotary valve, both two position and multi-position.
This level of functionality reduces cost and minimizes the amount of equipment necessary to provide adequate valve automation.
All Valco and Cheminert valves and selectors, with their wide range of turning torques, are covered by three actuator versions: high speed, medium speed/medium torque, and high torque. Actuators include a universal 24 volt DC power supply and manual interface.
An OEM version that excludes these items is also available, VICI Valco explains. The Universal Actuator is CE/RoHS compliant and has a variety of interface options including RS232/485, USB, and BCD.
