What is Proportional Electric Actuator?
A proportional electric actuator is a type of device that converts an electrical signal into mechanical motion. Typically used to control the position, speed or force of a mechanical system such as a valve, motor or robot.
Proportional electric actuators are often used in applications where precise control is required, such as manufacturing, process control, and automotive systems. They can be used to control a wide variety of motions and forces and are often used where there is a direct relationship between the input signal and the output motion.
Proportional electric actuators can be classified according to the type of electrical signal they use to control the movement of the actuator. Some common types of proportional electric actuators include:
- DC motor actuators that use a DC motor to provide mechanical movement
- Stepper motor actuators that use stepper motors to provide precise, incremental movements
- Linear actuators using linear motors or ball screws to provide linear motion
- Pneumatic actuators that use compressed air to provide mechanical movement
Proportional electric actuators are typically controlled by an electronic controller that takes an input signal and converts it into an electrical signal suitable for controlling the actuator. The controller may also include additional features such as feedback control, interlocks, and diagnostics.
Its application areas can be applied to valve types including ball, butterfly valves and all rotary movements.
Electric Actuators; It consists of 3-phase motor, speed regulator, torque control, stroke control opening indicator, manual electrical switches, manual gear and electrical parts.
The actuator contains a mechanically adjustable torque mechanism. The necessary torque control settings have been made at the factory. However, if adjustment is still needed, it can be done mechanically.
