Smart Electric Valve Actuators: Failsafe, On-off, Modulating, On-off modulating
Electric valve actuators work by converting electrical
energy into mechanical rotary torque by controlling a motor to run in one
direction to open a valve, then reversing the motor to run in the opposite
direction to close the valve. A reversible electric actuator primarily consists
of an electric motor, electronic motor controls and a planetary mechanical
These smart electronic valve actuators have evolved over its 20 year history to be in constant visual communication with the user via a multi-colour LED status light, in a single model (J3C-S Type) that is both a 240V actuator and a 24V actuator due to its automatic 24-240V AC or DC multi-voltage sensing technology that has a patent pending. J+J user friendly smart electric actuators offer modern features that are beneficial to the user. The design of these innovative EU manufactured electronic actuators embraces modern technology and provides an impressive list of useful features which sets the standard in the actuated valve industry.
Offering high torque outputs up to 350Nm from a relatively compact housing, the J and J industrial weatherproof quarter turn electrical actuator offers a perfect actuation solution for quarter turn electric valves to typically create actuated ball valves and actuated butterfly valves for a wide variety of applications. As standard these electric actuators are protected against valve jams by an electronic torque limiter, and against condensation with a thermostatic anti-condensation heater. Local visual and electric remote position confirmation and a selectable hand wheel operated manual override facility complete the main standard feature list.
But the really smart feature is that the standard on-off operation can be changed easily and quickly by installing plug and play function conversion kits, which create failsafe electric actuators with a plug-in battery back-up kit, modulating electric actuators with a self-calibrating plug-in digital positioner kit, or failsafe modulating electric actuators by installing both kits.
This creates power open, power close functionality or more commonly referred to as an on-off actuator, and this is the basic principle of the J+J electric valve actuator.
