Two-position actuator

Finalist in HVAC/R in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition

By Edited by Gust Gianos, Consulting-Specifying Engineer May 13, 2011

Schneider Electric’s two-position, spring-return 24 V actuator provides “normally open” or “normally closed” return positions for the complete range of VBB/VBS series 0.5-in. and 0.75-in. two-way and three-way valves. The actuator enables installers to engage or detach the actuator from the valve body using the one-handed push lever and no tools. Only 1 in. of clearance is needed to remove the actuator, and it offers a low-profile, compact design for hard-to-reach spaces. An optional single-pole, single-throw (SPST) auxiliary switch is useful for applications where feedback or auxiliary control is desirable.
