To perfom linear movements, e. g. in case of globe valves, the multi-turn actuator SA ... can be combined with the linear thrust unit LE, forming an electric linear actuator. In case a lever arrangement has to be operated, the linear thrust unit can be mounted on a base.
OPEN-CLOSE or modulating duty
Class A: OPEN-CLOSE duty. The actuator is required to drive the valve through its entire travel from the fully open position to the fully closed position or vice versa.
Class B: Inching/positioning or positioning duty. The actuator is required to occasionally drive the valve to any position (fully open, intermediate and fully closed).
Class C: Modulation or modulating duty. The actuator is required to frequently drive the valve to any position between fully open and fully closed.
