Product Details Supplier Info More products

Rotork has introduced the IQ3 range of intelligent, non-intrusive heavy duty electric valve actuators designed for designed for rotary valves, either by direct attachment or in combination with secondary gearboxes.

The IQ3 features an indication window made from toughened glass, an LCD segment display, a handheld setting tool, and an absolute encoder with built-in redundancy and self-checking.

Mechanical features include handwheel assemblies, non-intrusive local control switches and larger cable entries.

The range is housed in an IP68 watertight and temporarily submersible double-sealed enclosure, making it suitable for harsh environments.

Further information

  • Toughened glass wide-angle indication window: allows non-intrusive, two-way wireless communication and multi-functional indication; encompasses user-friendly menus for setting up, configuration and commissioning, local position indication, valve and actuator status, asset management and diagnostic operating information
  • LCD segment display: provides actuator set-up and operating menus; diagnostic and operating data screens are displayed in dot matrix format; four selectable screens — actuator settings, torque and position, simultaneous demand and position, and diagnostic graphics
  • Handheld setting tool: uses an infrared signal to check actuator and setting tool are Rotork devices before pairing them together using Bluetooth; data from up to 10 actuators can be transferred to a PC for analysis using Rotork Insight2 diagnostic software
  • Absolute encoder: remembers valve positions if actuator is manually operated when power is off; has only four moving parts; can measure up to 8,000 output turns
  • Integral battery powers actuator’s EEPROM memory and provides same information remotely when power is off
  • Thrust bases have been re-engineered as separate components, enabling actuators to be removed from the valve without altering the valve position
