Auma Actuators’s modular actuation technology will be used to support an asset management system at the Rhine port steam power plant (RDK) in Karlsruhe, Germany.

The modular actuation technology will be installed in RDK 8, a new block under construction at the 912MW plant.

Features of the Auma product supplied include integral controls and Profibus DP-V2 interfaces – benefits include support of asset management processes.

Addressing a requirement for non-intrusive functionality, the actuators will enable the plant to set all operation parameters via local controls without using tools or opening the housing.

The RDK 8 scheme confirms Auma’s capability to support difficult-to-access locations – local operation centres are assisted by an actuation solution with integral controls mounted in easy access locations.

Central time-stamped reports provided by Auma Actuators will capture events including switching/setting procedures or failures.

When alerted, the DCS will store locally time-stamped events to provide detailed analysis of any failures.

Device parameter settings will, therefore, be optimised during both the commissioning phase and during operation.
